  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5711 in white gold is the “evening version” of what can be defined as one of the most - if not the most - collectible sports watch on the current market. This dressier version is highlighted by a leather strap rather than the usual metal bracelet, furthermore fitted with a special "Nautilus" clasp.

    Already a staple of the most distinguished collections worldwide, reference 5711 has enjoyed even more attention since the discontinuation of the steel model with blue dial this year. Considering that the gold-on-strap versions had already been discontinued, as was the steel version with white dial, this leaves only the 5711 in pink gold with bracelet in the current Patek Philippe catalogue, even though an educated guess would potentially indicate the incoming discontinuation of that last version as well.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
