PROPERTY OF AN IMPORTANT COLLECTOR
Due to the laborious nature of the enamelling process, Patek Philippe only produces a limited number of this reference every year, making this a highly sought-after watch among collectors. The reference was in fact already subject to a long waiting list at the time of production. Additionally, each dial is individually enameled by hand, resulting in no two dials being identical.
As the perpetual calendar chronograph pieces, the World Time watches are iconic models from Patek Philippe. The manufacture has kept the essence of the early references such as the 1415 which was first introduced in 1939 and engineered by Louis Cottier. Coincidentally, the first 1415 with an enamel dial, also depicting a map, was made exactly 60 years before the 5131 was introduced.
Until today, less than 25 examples of the 5131G have appeared on the market. The present lot is offered on behalf of an important private collector, in immaculate condition, just serviced by Patek Philippe and accompanied by all its original accessories.
