  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5711 is the modern iteration of the first true sport's watch by Patek Philippe: the Nautilus. Launched in 1976 with reference 3700, and at the time marketed as the world most expensive steel watch, the model - together with its Audemars Piguet counterpart: the Royal Oak - effectively reshaped the wristwatch market, launching the luxury sport's watch category, today a staple of many brands but back then simply non-existent.
    Arguably one of the most coveted modern timepieces, the years long waiting list at Patek Philippe retailers are testament to the ever growing interest of the public for the model. The present example is offered by its original owner - an important Asian collector - in excellent condition and complete of its original sale kit.

  • 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.
