  • Catalogue Essay

    The present reference 5711 belongs to an elite production line and it is believed that only 30 pieces were ever manufactured. There are some subtle differences that one must look closely in order to discover why the present watch is so different. The first of those differences is the blue jeans colour of the dial. The second is the diamond at 6 o'clock and thirdly, the metal has a different appearance and is a lot more shiny and white. The present watch is extremely heavy and is render entirely in the most noble of metals, platinum. This is the second time an all platinum Nautilus has appeared on the market. Further highlighting the exclusivity of this Nautilus bracelet watch is that it is in brand new condition and retains all original accessories.
