  • Catalogue Essay

    Rarely has a timepiece been something and its opposite yet the present pink gold Nautilus reference 5711 manages to be both boorishly flamboyant and classically restrained and it is intriguing how Patek Philippe has succeeded in achieving a balance between opulence, technicality and elegance.

    The Patek Philippe Nautilus doesn’t need an introduction, the Genta designed icon has become one of the world’s most coveted and recognizable timepieces with its porthole inspired case and integrated bracelet. Launched in 2006 in celebration of the Nautilus’s 30th anniversary reference 5711 paid tribute to its forefather, the original reference 3700, keeping the original “jumbo” 42 mm. case but with the addition of a central seconds hand.

    The pink gold version was presented in 2015, it was the first time the 5711 was offered in this precious metal and demand rocketed. The desirability of the rose gold reference 5711 is fully understandable considering the superbly timeless and powerful design of the Nautilus merged with the flamboyance of a warm pink gold case beautifully framing a degrade chocolate brown dial.
    The watch impresses not only by its sheer heft but its superlative almost unworn condition and full set of accessories.
