  • Catalogue Essay

    Rarely has a timepiece been something and its opposite yet the present pink gold Nautilus reference 5711 manages to be both flamboyant and classically restrained and it is intriguing how Patek Philippe has succeeded in achieving a balance between opulence, technicality and elegance.

    The Patek Philippe Nautilus doesn’t need an introduction, the Genta designed icon has become one of the world’s most coveted and recognizable timepieces with its porthole inspired case and integrated bracelet. Launched in 2006 in celebration of the Nautilus’s 30th-anniversary. reference 5711 paid tribute to its forefather, the original reference 3700, keeping the original “jumbo” 42.5 mm case but with the addition of a central seconds hand.

    The pink gold version was presented in 2015 and it was the first time the 5711 was offered in this precious metal and was very well received by collectors. The desirability of the rose gold reference 5711 is fully understandable considering the superbly timeless and powerful design of the Nautilus merged with the flamboyance of a warm pink gold case beautifully framing a degrade chocolate brown dial. The rarity and desirability of this present lot is found on the dial: the prestigious and elusive Tiffany & Co. signature. The enduring partnership between Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co. has resulted in some of the most coveted timepieces of the modern era. Since the 1990s, Tiffany & Co. remains the only retailer that is still allowed to stamp their logo on the dial of Patek Philippe watches.

    The present reference 5711/1R is fresh-to-the-market and is accompanied by its full complement of original accessories, including its blue Tiffany & Co. outer packaging.
