Patek Philippe World Time Tokyo 2023

Recently the “Watch Art” grand exhibition in Tokyo concluded this year's festivities, where Patek Philippe revealed a few special editions created specifically for this event. At first glance it seems like a new plum dialed version of reference 5230, but in actuality this is the first world timer with a date. The inclusion of the extra complication required increasing the case slightly, but it still maintains all its vintage-inspired charm.The round 40 mm case is made of 18k white gold with an overall mirror-like polished finish, while mounted by a narrow bezel that keeps its height at 11.57mm. Other distinctive features include the winglet-style lugs that elegantly bend to smoothly accommodate a comfortable wrist fit. On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It comes decorated with shiny jewels, several golden gears, and an off-center 22k gold micro-rotor with the Calatrava cross engraving. The events emblem has also been printed directly on the sapphire crystal.It comes equipped with an innovative mechanism (patented back in 1999) that allows the user to simultaneously correct all the distinct World Time displays in one-hour increments, by simply pressing the pusher at 10 o’clock. All topped by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that assists with water-resistance reaching up to 30 meters (100 feet).Time is told on a purple, plum colored dial with a hand-applied circular guilloché pattern, and gold-applied hour index markers, followed by a series of outer rings. First off is a two-tone white and purple 24h ring, adorned with a sun (day-time) and crescent moon (night-time). Day-time is represented by purple numerals on a white background; while night-time is represented with white numerals on a purple background.As we move towards the flange there are two consecutive world timer city rings, on which can be read 24 city names corresponding to 24 time-zones. The current local time corresponds to the city name highlighted by the small red arrow at 12 o'clock, while the times of the other 23 zones are readable on the 24-hour ring that rotates counter-clockwise within the city disk.Finally the newest addition to this dial is the date track that appears on the sloped flange and is pointed out by a very discreet transparent hand with a red rectangular tip.The central gold hands are composed of a pierced hour hand with a silhouette that recalls the famous “Southern Cross” constellation and the minute hand features a lozenge-shaped contour.
