  • Catalogue Essay

    To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the iconic Nautilus, Patek Philippe released new models in 2006 including the time only reference 5711, the 5712 with date, moon phase and power reserve, a flyback chronograph wristwatch, reference 5980, and the very rare reference 5800. Originally envisioned by genius designer Gerald Genta in 1976, the Nautilus’s case design was inspired by a luxury liner’s portholes, subtly underlining the marriage of elegance and sporty robustness found in this timepiece.

    The reference 5711 represented the return of the “Jumbo” Nautilus, featuring a design similar to the original model, but with a few technical upgrades, including an in-house self-winding movement caliber 324 S C, replacing the Jaeger-LeCoultre-based caliber featured in the reference 3700. Additionally, the new Nautilus was fitted with a sapphire caseback enabling the wearer to admire the in-house caliber in action. The bracelet was further refined and case adopted a slightly rounder appearance. Research indicates the striated white dials (011) were produced between 2012 and 2019, making this example one of the last.

    Now discontinued in the white and blue dial variants, the Nautilus remains a virtually impossible-to-obtain timepiece, with waiting lists at retailers stretching into years, indicating how timeless and universally praised this design has become since it was first introduced in 1976. The present model is in new-old-stock condition, and offered by the original owner complete with its Certificate of Origin and presentation box.
