  • Catalogue Essay

    Inspired by the portholes of transatlantic ocean liners, the Patek Philippe ref. 5711 was named after Captain Nemo’s Nautilus submarine from Jules Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”. Dubbed as a collectors’ favourite, this luxury sports watch is the perfect balance between form and function.

    Building upon the preceding ref. 3700 Jumbo Nautilus, this reference features center seconds, a date window at 3 o’clock and is housed in a larger 40mm case. Sporting a distinct gradient dial, the stage is set for its horizontal embossed lines, which not only adds depth to the dial but also reveals the varying shades of blue as it plays with light and shade. Complete with applied hour markers and baton-shaped hands in white gold, the ref. 5711 perfectly embodies the Patek Philippe distinguished flair, specially designed for the modern gentry.

    Complementing its crisp and clean dial, the case and bracelet are tastefully executed, with every corner bevelled and polished. The mirror-like finishes on the centre links also create a sublime contrast to the vertically brushed surfaces on the bracelet.

    In 2021, Patek Philippe shocked collectors with the disappointing discontinuation of the blue- dialled ref. 5711/1A-010, making way for the reference’s final chapter, the ref. 5711/1A-014. As the saying goes, all good things are short and sweet. After a brief one-year production run, the olive-green-dialled Nautilus subsequently ceased production in 2022. Now a memory of the past, the important evolution of the ref. 5711 can be detailed in three series:



    First series (2006-2007): Fitted with calibre 315

    Second series (2007-2019): Fitted with calibre 324 SC with Geneva Seal (pre-2010), and later with Patek Philippe seal (post-2010)

    Third series (2019-2021): Fitted with calibre 26-330 SC with hack feature

    Fresh-to-the-market, the present ref. 5711 is part of the third series, offered in “new-old-stock” condition with its Certificate or Origin and presentation box. One of the last of its kind, the opportunity at hand to acquire this brand new, unworn Nautilus is perhaps as rare as the watch itself.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. 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.
