    By 2018, Patek Philippe had diversified its 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. The present lot is fresh-to-the-market and offered with all of its original accessories, having been purchased in January of 2021.

    A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this lot will go to benefit the World Central Kitchen, providing meals for Ukrainian refugees.

    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.
