Minute Repeater, World Time

Patek Philippe World Time

A timepiece which made waves in the world of watchmaking in 2017 as the first minute-repeater to always chime at local time, Ref. 5531 is introduced in a stunning white gold version. In honour of its incredible Travel Time complications, the dial of Ref. 5531G is adorned with a cloisonné Grand Feu enamel motif depicting one of the famous steamships of the Belle Époque fleet which is still sailing on Lake Geneva today. Often named the most beautiful steamship in the world, it is only fitting for this to grace the dial of a Patek Philippe timepiece. The entirely hand-crafted masterpiece demonstrates the superlative nature of artistry at Patek Philippe.

Minute Repeater

This timepiece is distinguished by its pristine finishes, with 44 rose-gold polished appliques and exquisitely finished dial displays which create beautiful plays of light.
