The smallest fake watch of this world traveller trio measures just 39.5mm in diameter. Patek Philippe worthy, you could say. It is not only a world time watch, it also has a chronograph on board, maybe the most useful combination of complications.
The Replica Patek Philippe 5930G World Time Chronograph has the most classic distribution of a world time watch in my opinion. An outer disc with all cities on there for the 24 different time zones as well as a 24-hour disc. On top of that, there is a central chronograph second hand and a small 30-minute recorder at 6 o’clock.
How it works
The fake Patek Philippe 5930G has three pushers and a crown. Two of the pushers, those at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock are for the fly-back chronograph. The pusher at 10 o’clock is there for the travellers amongst us. By pushing it, the city disc and 24-hour ring move counter-clockwise, while the hour hand increases with one-hour steps in a clockwise direction. After you’ve set the correct home time, you can use the pusher at 10 o’clock to make the indicator (at 12 o’clock) point at the city (or better said: time zone) of your destination. The 24-hour disc indicates whether it is AM or PM. As easy as that.
The dial of the Patek Philippe 5930G is really a piece of art. The blue opaline dial with hand-guilloched finish is a feast for the eyes. The 24-hour disc has a different tone of blue, with enough contrast to make easily recognizable. The high-polished hands and applied hour markers also give enough contrast to make the dial very easy to read. This Patek Philippe is the only watch in this article that actually is based on something from the past. World timers aren’t new to Patek Philippe, already in the 1940s (reference 1415HU) they had these beautiful world timer replica Patek Philippe Calatrava Automatic Diamond watches. Today’s Patek Philippe World Time is reference 5230, also introduced this year during BaselWorld, just like the 5930G we have here. So we could also have chosen that reference for this article, but the 5930G is just so incredibly stunning, we just had to go for this one.
Patek Philippe copy watch uses their calibre CH 28-520 HU for their World Time Chronograph. Besides the world time functionality, there’s also the fly-back chronograph of course. However, this movement is in fact the other way around. A column-wheel stopwatch swiss made movement (based on the first in-house chronograph movement Patek Philippe developed and used in 2006) with an add-on module for the time zone complication. The movement has 343 parts in total and is 7.97mm thick. The beautiful 21 carat gold rotor has a perlage finish at the centre. All bridges have a circular grain and beautifully polished chamfers and gold-filled engravings. The CH 28-520 HU movement has a power reserve of approximately 50 – 55 hours.
The Patek Philippe 5930G World Time Chronograph retails for 73,000 Swiss Francs. The World Time reference 5230 retails for 42,300 Swiss Francs, a little closer to the Glashütte Original Senator Cosmopolite, if you want.
The patek philippe replica watches are incredibly well finished and there is little to critique. It is a matter of taste and budget. You can’t go wrong with any of these three watches, they all do their job well and with elegance and style.
