  • Catalogue Essay

    One does not have to be a watch enthusiast to recognise the Nautilus and be a fan of it. Released in 2006, the ref. 5800 was launched with other important milestone contemporary Nautilus models, such as the ref. 5711, 5980 and 5712, marking the return of the coveted mid-sized variant, previously known as the ref. 3800.

    This reference is a transitional model that combines the elements of the past and present and was only produced for a year. Encased in stainless steel, the ref. 5800 is a rare bird that retains its timeless aesthetic of a monobloc case with an integrated sapphire caseback.

    The 38mm case of the present model is slightly larger than the fun-sized original, which featured a 37.5mm diameter case. Keeping its signature blued ribbed dial, the firm’s in-house movement is the cal. 330 SC equipped with a Geneva seal.

    The present Nautilus ref. 5800 from 2006 is offered in excellent overall condition with Certificate of Origin and accessories. Furthermore the manufacture date is confirmed by the Patek Philippe extract from the archives. This is the ideal opportunity for collectors of rare and prominent timepieces to acquire one of the most exotic stainless steel Nautilus models ever produced.

    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.
