  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1976, Patek Philippe collaborated with Gerard Genta to create the ultimate sports watch. Seeking design inspiration, Patek Philippe appealed to robust nature, crisp lines and bold shape of the porthole found on maritime vessels.

    The Nautilus collection was subsequently born, with the very first model being reference 3700/1 in stainless steel. During this period, luxury sports watches were usually produced in gold, so reference 3700/1 in steel was a true anomaly in the watchmaking community.

    The present watch, reference 5711 was released in 2006. The updated version features a larger, 43 mm. wide dial and Patek's 324 SC movement. However, what truly sets the present watch apart is that it is rendered in platinum. Patek Philippe released very limited examples of reference 5711 in platinum. The present watch further features a diamond on the watch case under 6 o'clock above the lugs, which is an indication and hallmark of platinum Patek Philippe watches.

    This platinum reference 5711 is for the first time ever offered at auction anywhere in the world and is in excellent overall condition.

  • 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.
