  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2006, Patek Philippe started a new chapter with the Nautilus with the introduction of the modern version via the ref. 5711. Retaining essentially a very similar aesthetic to its vintage ancestors, the new model featured a more robust case design as well as an additional center seconds complication. Along with its release were complicated references which included the likes of ref. 5712 and 5980.

    In 2015, Patek Philippe released the ref. 5711 in pink gold, being the first to be encased in the metal. Released at the same time was its extremely rare counterpart ref. 5723 featuring a gem-set bezel made available either in diamonds or rubies, with ruby examples much rarer.

    For most lovers of rare Patek Philippe timepieces, nine out of ten times, the name Tiffany & Co. would appear. With both firm’s having celebrated their long-lasting relationship of 170 years last year in 2021, the year marked an important milestone for both, with Patek Philippe announcing the discontinuation of the coveted ref. 5711 and with both firm’s collaborating together to launch the ref. 5711 Tiffany & Co. limited edition of 170 pieces in stainless steel with a Tiffany blue dial, which PHILLIPS had the pleasure to offer the first ever example at our last New York Watch Auction 2021 with all proceeds donated to charity. Achieving a spectacular result, the market grew hungrier for Tiffany & Co. signed Patek Philippe timepieces.

    The present example Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5723/112R-001 from circa 2018 is an extremely rare sight as it features not only the rare and desirable baguette-cut ruby-set bezel and indexes totaling 4 carats, it is also the stamp at 6 o'clock that makes this an irresistible timepiece. Incredibly rare and fresh-to-the-market, this is the first example to appear to be stamped with the prestigious brand Tiffany & Co., complete with its full set of accessories with a Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin stamped by the one and only Tiffany & Co. New York, USA. Without a single photograph of the present timepiece available on the internet, the hype is real. Offered in pristine condition and consigned by the original owner, PHILLIPS is extremely excited to present this rare gem in The Hong Kong Watch Auction: XIV.
