  • Catalogue Essay

    - Patek Philippe reference 5980/1 was initially introduced in 2006 together with its time-only brother reference 5711, during the same year when the Nautilus collection as a whole celebrated its 30th birthday.

    - Equipped with the manufacturer's in-house self-winding chronograph calibre CH 28-520, the design of the timepieces was entirely new and revolutionary as the Nautilus collection had never incorporated a flyback chronograph function before.

    - Stepping away from the usual chronograph layout, the dial is further simplified via a subsidiary dial combining all registers into one, forming what is dubbed as the “bull’s eye” counter. Originally available in stainless steel with bracelet, 18K pink gold with a leather strap for early examples and the latest iteration in 18K pink gold with a matching bracelet, Stainless steel examples have been discontinued in 2014 and replaced by the reference 5990, the timepiece has since then been one of the most sought after Patek Philippe references since.

    - The present timepiece comes with its original Certificate of Origin and fitted box.

    - Bought in March 2009, the present timepiece is preserved in excellent overall condition.

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.
