by Jonathan Ho on March 21, 2017

Fo Basel 2017, the Geneva Manufacture is pleased to announce the Patek Philippe Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130 in Peacock Blue. The new Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130G is a visual update of the current production model Patek 7130G with brown guilloche dial and diamond-set bezel. For the new Patek Philippe Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130, everything remains the same save for the new grey-blue or “peacock blue” guilloche dial.

Basel 2017 Patek Philippe Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130 in Peacock Blue

The Patek Philippe Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130 was launched just two years into the brand’s journey into grand complications designed with women in mind. When the original Patek Philippe Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130 was launched in red gold, the timepiece was unabashedly feminine thanks to its diamond set bezel and dainty proportions. World Time watches were developed in the 1930s as a jet-set accessory and while it was mostly available in men’s watches, Patek Philippe addressed the concerns of jet-set women with the Ref. 7130.

The new Patek Philippe Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130 with new peacock blue guilloche dial, bi-colored center ring with 24-hour indication, and sunburst outer chapter ring with 24 international cities allows women to enjoy a benefit local time and various international timezones.

Additionally, the functionality of simple city ring change via pusher at 10 o’clock rather than force a lady with manicured figures to adjust the hour hand ad nauseam has made the Patek Philippe Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130 a runaway hit, encouraging the Geneva manufacture to add a new stylish colour to its repertoire of women’s world time watches. Driven by the automatic calibre 240 HU, the latest Patek Philippe Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130 with 62 diamonds on bezel is an exquisite 36mm take on the classical grand complication which men often take for granted. The 7130G comes with matching peacock-blue alligator strap to match
