  • Catalogue Essay

    During its 15 year production run the 5711 Nautilus became more than ‘just a watch’ building a reputation that surpassed the once niche community of watch collecting and extending an invitation out to the wider world, drawing many more passionate and curious people into the world of watches.
    Despite this all-encompassing success, many collectors are only now starting to familiarize themselves with the details of how the model evolved over its lifetime.
    Only a small circle of scholars had noted Patek initially produced these watches with a different caliber than would be fitted in the reference 5711 over the following 14 years. These early ‘series 1’ models were powered by the in-house calibre 315, proudly bearing the coveted Geneva Seal before Patek replaced them with the ubiquitous 324 SC that powered the model through until the introduction of the 26-330 SC in 2019.

    In production for less than two years, with this first generation movement the present lot is amongst the rarest ‘classic dial’ 5711s produced, delivered by the factory in January 2008 and sold on April 1st the same year. Consigned by the family of the original owner, it is offered with its original box, packaging, certificate of origin, bill of sale, leather wallet, and instructions.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

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.
