  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced initially in 1976, the Nautilus designed by Gerald Genta was Patek Philippe’s first luxury sports watch in stainless steel with an integrated bracelet. Since the launch of the very first Nautilus ref. 3700, the model was released in various case dimensions, materials, and complications. In 2006, the firm ended an era and started a new one with the release of the ref. 5711. Though much of its aesthetics remain the same, the new Nautilus reference featured a more robust case design and also featured additional center seconds. The new release also witnessed variants with complications such as the ref. 5712 and the ref. 5980. In 2015, Patek Philippe introduced a pink gold variant of the ref. 5711 along with the ref. 5723 featuring a delicious “chocolate” brown dial matching perfectly with the red hue of the case.

    Romantically set with 32 baguette-cut rubies on the bezel with 11 ruby-set indexes, the modern ref. 5723 Nautilus models are extremely rare and are highly sought after by collectors today as it still retains its sporty aesthetics with a touch of flamboyance. The present example Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5723/112R-001 is offered in stunning condition with sparing use, accompanied by the Certificate of Origin and its full set of accessories. It is the first time that an example like the present is being offered at a PHILLIPS auction. A superbly elegant and exquisite iconic timepiece that will be a delight to add to any of the most important collections in the world.
