  • Catalogue Essay

    Initially released in 2006 encased in stainless steel, the Patek Philippe ref. 5980 was a milestone for the firm, as it is the first Nautilus reference with a chronograph complication. Well-received by the community, Patek Philippe released a pink gold iteration with a leather strap in 2010, ref. 5980R-001.

    Fitted with an attractive chocolate brown dial matching perfectly against the 18K pink gold case, the dial further features a silvered all-in-one register at 6 O’clock. Powered by Patek Philippe’s first in-house self-winding chronograph ref. CH 28-520 C, the importance of the reference is matched by its ever growing community of admirers.

    The present example Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5980R-001 is presented in excellent overall condition with very minimal wear. Enhancing its desirability and further enhancing its rarity, the present specimen bears the “Tiffany & Co” signature under “GENEVE”. Accompanied by its full set of accessories with a Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin stamped by Tiffany & Co., New York, the present timepiece will surely delight many collectors in the community seeking for this highly sought after timepiece.

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.
