  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe has once again broken new heights with the Nautilus model, which was first introduced in 1976, where it has grown and evolved to an entire collection. With chronograph, dual time zone, annual calendar as part of the complication added to the legendary model in recent times.

    A grand debut in 2018 at Baselworld, Patek Philippe unveiled the firm's first Nautilus with a perpetual calendar function, reference 5740/1G-001. One of the thinnest perpetual calendars produced by the manufacture, fitted into a white gold case is the self-winding caliber 240 Q, which is visible through the sapphire caseback, where one can see the recessed 22k gold micro-rotor engraved with the firm's Calatrava cross emblem and a côtes de Genève finished to the movement.

    The classic sunburst blue dial with the horizontal ribbing embodies the perfect layout and configuration of the three subsidiary dials of the perpetual calendar executed in a well-balanced manner. Presented in brand new condition, the present example is fresh to the market.

    All proceeds exceeding the cost for the consignor will be donated to charities supporting access to medical care for families in need and orphanages.
