  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2006 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Nautilus, the Patek Philippe ref. 5711 will finally be replaced soon in the near future after witnessing one of the most pivotal eras for the famed model. Regarded by purists as the perfectly executed luxury sports wristwatch, the ref. 5711 has become a staple icon on its own. Originally released in stainless steel with its iconic blue ribbed dial, it was only in 2012 when the firm introduced an example with a white dial. Oozing with alpine style and a completely different appeal to its blue counterpart, the white ribbed dial with blackened white gold luminous-filled indexes and hands are a game changer. Inspired by the original reference 3700 “Jumbo”, the present reference 5711 features sweep center seconds and a larger 42.5 mm case. Striking and stunning, the white striped dial is the most attention-grabbing feature of the watch. With the awe-inspiring snowy dial, this watch is the perfect companion to your luxury ski vacations.

    The present example Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5711/1A-011 from circa 2016 is not just the usual. Signed by famous New York jeweler Tiffany & Co. a venerable jeweler that has long been a purveyor of fine timepieces sitting above the 6 o’clock index, this highly sought-after model is offered in excellent overall condition and is further accompanied by its original Certificate of Origin stamped by Tiffany & Co., New York. With the discontinuation of the entire reference soon, the importance of the ref. 5711 will surely be remembered in the long-standing history of the firm as one of the greats.
