  • Catalogue Essay

    In recent years, the Nautilus has gained a substantial growth of passionate followers and status as the most iconic Patek Philippe wristwatch still in production today. First introduced in 1976, the Nautilus reference 3700/1A, who was designed by the infamous Gerald Genta at the Basel fair was where the craze originally started. With the inspiration of the case coming from the porthole of a ship, it is inevitable that it carried some similar traits with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, which also was designed by Genta.

    In 2005, the reference 5711 was introduced to the market, bearing much of the general aesthetics from its previous references. The reference was also available in rose gold with a leather strap.

    The present example is a reference 5711 in rose gold fitted with a leather strap manufactured in 2008 and further accompanied by the full set of accessories that came with the present watch when it was purchased by the original owner.

    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.
