Attention to details
Guilloché

This age-old hand-guilloché technique is used to engrave straight or circular grooves only a few tenths of a millimeter thick, and three to four hundredths of a millimeter deep. The intersecting grooves of guilloché form a patina of endlessly varied motifs to catch and reflect the light; here, they strike out from the center in rays.

Press release

Patek Philippe World Time watch Ref. 5230

The Patek Philippe World Time watch, also referred to as Heure Universelle by collectors, has ranked among the manufacture's most popular complicated wristwatches for nearly eighty years. Because some time zone designations have recently changed or were replaced with new ones, Baselworld is the ideal platform for Patek Philippe to present the new World Time watch Ref. 5230, which is replacing all previous models. The changes were a welcome opportunity to subtly rework the case, dial, and hand designs as well.
