  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5711 is the modern iteration of the first luxury sports wristwatch by Patek Philippe, the Nautilus. Launched in 1976, the reference 3700, together with Audemars Piguet's counterpart the Royal Oak, and Vacheron Constantin’s 222 effectively reshaped the market, launching the luxury sports watch category.

    Introduced in 2006, the reference 5711 featured new innovations and updated the watch for modern times, with some slight variations seen between the two models. Instead of the original two-piece monobloc case, the 5711 was constructed with a three-piece case that allowed for easier assembly, servicing, and an exhibition caseback. It also measured 1mm wider than the original 3700, and was 0.7mm thicker. The 5711 was powered by an in-house self-winding movement, the robust caliber 324 SC, which permitted a center seconds indication for the first time. A higher-grade of steel was used for improved corrosion resistance, and the bracelet was upgraded and refined, with the center links slightly flattened and the buckle now triple folding.

    Arguably one of the most coveted modern timepieces and recently discontinued, the present example is offered by its original owner in excellent condition and complete with all of its original accessories.
