Christie’s to auction unique Patek 5131J cloisonne world time for charity

Unique Patek Philippe 5131J for Children Action

Tomorrow in Geneva Christie’s a piece unique Patek Philippe ref. 5131J cloisonne dial world time will go under the hammer. Unlike the regular 5131J which has a cloisonne map, this depicts the Old Town of Geneva and the Jet d’Eau. “Geneva” is also highlighted in blue on the cities disc to remind the wearer what city it depicts; like on the regular 5131J the bezel is engraved “Geneva” just to be sure. 

Proceeds will go to Swiss charity Children Action – bids can be submitted with this form (PDF). The regular versions of the 5131 go for USD120,000 and up (retail is merely half that), so don’t expect this to go cheaply. A worthy cause indeed but I am not a fan of this watch – here’s why.
