  • 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 for a watch today.

    Originally envisioned by genius designer Gerald Genta in 1976, the case design is inspired by a luxury cruiser’s portholes, subtly underlining the marriage of elegance and sporty robustness found in this timepiece. Originally marketed as the ultimate status symbol, with strong emphasis on its high cost even though the watch is cased in stainless steel (period advertisements memorably read: “One of the world’s costliest watches is made of steel), the model is today one of the most recognised and appreciated sports watches available on the market.

    The present watch is distinguished by the addition of the Tiffany & Co. signature. While a reference 5711 is a rarity itself and already officially discontinued today, the retailer's signature brings another level of exclusivity. To date, no more than 5 examples of the reference 5711 with blue dial and Tiffany & Co. signature has ever graced the auction market.

    Preserved in overall excellent condition and complete with its full set of accessories including the blue Tiffany & Co. pouter box, the present reference 5711 is one of the rarest of all Nautilus models ever produced, no less with such an exclusive signature on the dial.

    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.
