  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5711 was launched in 2006 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Nautilus. Inspired by the original reference 3700 Jumbo Nautilus, the present reference 5711 features sweep center seconds and a larger case with 42.5 mm. bezel width. With the modern update and classic sporty look, the present watch is one of the most sought after timepieces at auction and as of right now, to be discontinued at retail stores.

    Preserved in barely worn condition, this timepiece is also accompanied by all its original accessories such as its Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated December 17, 2008, product literature, wallet, presentation box and outer packaging. Furthermore, the movement displays the Geneva seal, rather than the Patek Philippe seal found on current production models, giving it another layer of collectibility.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
