Patek Travel Watches: 5110 World Time or 5134 Travel Time?

 
 By: amanico : August 11th, 2019-09:58
The 5110 made its appearance in 2000 and was replaced in 2006. The Travel Time 5134 arrived in 2001 and discontinued in 2008. 

The 5110 is a world time, which means that it gives the time of 24 cities in the world, while the 5134 is a Travel Time, giving a second time zone which can be se forward or backward, at the contrary of the 5110. 

The cases have the same shape and dimensions: 37 mm, but the 5134 has two pushers on the left side ( to set the second time zone ). 

The movements are not the same: Automatic, Cal 240 for the 5110, and manual, Cal 215, for the 5134. 


The 5134 lived under the shadow of the 5110. Ok, these are not totally the same complications, and we could also say that with its second time zone adjustable forward and backward, the 5134 is more practical when you travel, but the 5110 has such a poetic and  romantic character, as well as an iconic status. 

I made my choice, which is well known, here. 

What about your preference? 

Best,

Nicolas

I have a lot of experience on both

but can't make up my mind. Naturally, the Worldtime is "cooler" while the Travel Time is more readable. One vote both.

Best, Kari

6-1. Thanks, Kari. [nt]

Same here. 5110, especially in Pt.

Still, there is no WT for me as long as We still have Daylight Savings Time in Europe. I just canโ€™t stand to use a complication that shows the wrong time.

This definitely troubled me.

When I owned a 5110, I used to show it off to friends, explaining that it shows the correct time all around the world, except not during most of the year.

I hope it does! Love the World Time complication, with the 5110/5130 or the VC Traditionelle being in the top spots. [nt]

5110 ๐Ÿค— But...

The 5134 is still an excellent reference, extremely underrated. I've been considering it a few times in the past, but currently there's no room for it in my small collection.
