Patek 5134P, Rare Platinum Travel Time Watch, Single Owner, Purchased from Gübelin, NICE!!!
This is a Patek ref. 5134P, a rare complication in the classic Calatrava line finished exquisitely in a platinum case, with a bi-color silver dial and elegant curved lines. Also known as the “Time Travel”, the ref. 5134P runs on a thin caliber 215 PS FUS 24H movement with a dual-time function and a 24-hour hand on the dial that allows the wearer to distinguish between day and night hours. Collectors who travel often or who simply prefer a striking statement piece will find the ref. 5134P of particular interest.
The ref. 5134, which was introduced in 2001, follows a distinguished lineage that dates back to 1958. In that year Patek introduced its very first dual time wristwatch in the form of the ref. 2597. Designed by Louis Cottier, the same man behind the Patek Philippe World Time blueprint. The ref. 2597 featured a “Heures Sautantes” (“jumping hand” in French) system. The dial included a separately adjustable jumping hand in addition to the standard hour and minutes hand. The case included two pushers on the left-hand side of the case where the top button advances the jumping hour hand forward, while the bottom button moves it back an hour. This meant that wearers could easily adjust local time while keeping home time the same.
Ref. 5134 is only the third variant of the Travel Time since 1958, and it combines a useful and subtle complication with and delightful and versatile design that is equally at home in a formal or business occasion as it is worn with jeans. The Calatrava 5134 features a 37mm round case, along with the duo of buttons on the left-hand side and the winding crown on the right-hand side. The gracefully tapered lugs slope around the wrist for a comfortable fit. Topping the watch is a prominent smooth bezel framing the dial.
This watch is in impeccable condition with a perfect dial, an excellent case, and strong hallmarks. It comes to us from the original owner, who purchased the watch at the prestige Gubelin shop. It comes with the original platinum deplaoyant buckle, box and the original Patek Philippe certificate.
