  • Catalogue Essay

    By 2018, Patek Philippe had diversified its legendary Nautilus line up to include a vast array of complications – from a simple date to a chronograph to an annual calendar. It finally came time to introduce their signature complication in the Nautilus line as well, and at Baselworld, Patek Philippe launched the 5740G. With a lustrous 18K white gold case and bracelet, the caliber 240 Q – Patek’s ultra-slim perpetual calendar movement stamped with the Patek Philippe seal – beats within so that the case itself remains a mere 8.42mm, which is even slimmer than the reference 5712.

    Well-balanced, with its signature ribbing, the chameleon-like blue dial changes depending on the lighting condition from a sky blue to a deep navy. It complements the warm grey luster of the case to create an exceptionally well-designed timepiece.

    What can only be described as a “cherry” on top of the cake, this 5740 bears the coveted “Tiffany & Co.” stamp on the dial. Only one other Tiffany-signed 5740 has appeared publicly, with very few having been produced. The watch is accompanied by its full suite of original accessories, including Tiffany blue outer box. It is furthermore presented in like-new, unworn condition.

    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.

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.
