  • Catalogue Essay

    The Nautilus - alongside the first luxury steel sport’s watch models from the 1970s - is a remarkable example of the courage and independence of some Swiss watchmakers. Against many, if not all the stylistic codes that ruled watchmaking until then, a luxury steel sports watch was created and today is the pillar of the Swiss watchmaking industry, with waiting lists so long that one is unable to merely put their name down today for a watch.

    The present 5713/1G is an extraordinary example of the diamond-set Nautilus. Extremely rare and made in very few quantities, it is the ultimate inconspicuous watch. The case has a beautiful luster and glows incandescently in a way that can only be achieved with the use of white gold. As confirmed by the Certificate of Origin, the bezel is set with 48 brilliant-cut diamonds for a weight of approximately 1.50 carats. The watch is complete with original certificate, box, and preserved in excellent, barely worn condition. Fresh to the auction market and in lovely condition, this timepiece makes a grand addition to a collection of Patek Philippe wristwatches.

  • 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.
