The Patek Philippe 5930 World Time Chronograph was first introduced in 2016 in white gold with a blue dial, inspired by a one-of-a-kind watch from 1940. It combines the practicality of a chronograph function with that of a world timer. The two iconic complications of the brand's repertoire are now presented in a green platinum version.
Patek Philippe decided it was time for the 5930G in white gold to be joined by a “big” brother made in platinum. Thus was born the 5930P. The habillage remains the same, it still has a rather modest diameter of 39.5mm with a height of 12.86mm which is quite impressive for such a complicated watch. The case has three pushers scattered around its middle case, two for the flyback chronograph and one for the world timer indication.
The subtle blue dial has been changed to a more lively and, dare I say more trendy, green color. The hand-applied circular guilloché motif is extremely refined and features applied gold hour markers. The central Dauphine-style hour and minute hands are matched to the chronograph seconds hand. In the lower half of the green center section, there is a 30-minute chronograph counter.
Going out one step, we find a two-tone day / night wheel with 24 hours. Nestled between that ring and the outer ring of the city is the black-on-white chronograph seconds track. And finally, the outer ring shows all 24 time zones with corresponding cities, printed in green.
The chronograph Patek Philippe 5930P World Time is powered by the caliber CH 28-250 HU. This world time and flyback chronograph movement is made up of 343 components, including 33 jewels, and measures 33mm in diameter with a height of 7.97mm. It operates at a frequency of 28.800 Vph and provides 50 to 55 hours of power reserve. The movement, topped by a 21-karat gold winding rotor, can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback.
