While a lot of the attention on Patek Philippe watch replica at BaselWorld this year …
The blue dial Patek Philippe World Time Chronograph Ref. 5930 fake watch presents a combination of two long-standing Patek Philippe specialties that true connoisseurs so far have seen only in a single piece from the 1940s. The chronograph range of the Genevan manufacture ranks among the most eclectic of our era, extending from manually wound classics with horizontal clutches and the world’s thinnest split-seconds chronograph with two column wheels to the monopusher chronograph with a minute repeater and an instantaneous perpetual calendar. Concurrently, with their ingenious patented time-zone mechanisms and inimitable aesthetic appeal, Patek Philippe World Time watches are among the most coveted timepieces in their category. Now, the new Patek Philippe World Time Chronograph Ref. 5930 brings together what is so compellingly complementary. This debut will delight many collectors and enthusiasts of top-tier timepieces.
With the Ref. 5930, Patek Philippe is now adding the World Time Chronograph as a new member to its regular collection, simultaneously upgrading it to the 21st-century state of the art. This is an ambitious venture, because both the World Time watch and the chronograph have made epochal progress at Patek Philippe since 1940. The mechanisms have become more precise but also more complex, so it was challenging to integrate both functions into one movement. To date, only a single Swiss-made fake Patek Philippe World Time Chronograph is known, a one-of-a-kind piece crafted over 70 years ago. It is wristwatch No. 862 442 dated 1940 (Patek Philippe Museum Inv. P996) featuring a dial with pulsimeter and asthmometer scales, and it probably belonged to a physician.
The new Patek Philippe World Time Chronograph Ref. 5930 launches in 2016 in a version with a white-gold case and a blue, hand-guilloched dial center. It is worn on a hand-stitched matt navy blue alligator strap with large square scales to match the dial. An 18K white-gold Calatrava fold-over clasp keeps the Patek Philippe copy watch comfortably secured to the wrist.
