Description

The Nautilus collection is the sport watch by excellence since 1976. In this very year, Mr Gerald Genta designed it in a restaurant during the Basel fair. Patek Philippe was known for its round-shaped case designs and classic watches, therefore, due to the high number of sports watches produced in the industry, Mr. Genta decided to design a different sports watch taking inspiration from the Nautical arts and more specifically from a ship’s porthole. This design was an immediate success and is now an unquestionable collection in the Patek Philippe dynasty.

The width of the bezel gives a large vision on the dial as the horizon when watching through a porthole and the side lugs also called “ears” are inspired by the hinges on these windows. A simple but elegant design that helped Patek Philippe touch a large public of watch enthusiasts.

Year after year, the Nautilus collection’s success was colossal also due to the new versions released with a larger case or a sapphire case-back. And the most popular among these versions is the undisputed 5711/1A blue dial.

 

To commemorate the 170th anniversary of Tiffany & Co and Patek Philippe’s partnership, the Genevan brand’s oldest US retailer, they rewarded the American jeweller’s new owner (LVMH group) with this special limited edition series of steel Nautilus.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-018 is THE most sought after Nautilus today and also the most expensive, the first one having fetched at auction USD 6 million dollars. Considered one of the most iconic sports timepieces of the brand, it has a classic design since 1976 that is both sporty and elegant.

At 40mm, the case is the perfect size for a sports watch and is designed with slim, rounded edges that make it both refined and ergonomic. The dial is the famous “Tiffany blue” and is “double-signed” Tiffany & Co. on the dial at 6 o’clock, with hour markers and hands applied in white gold. The date function is displayed at 3 o’clock.

The 5711/1A-018 is powered by the latest in-house caliber 26-330 S C, a self-winding mechanical movement that is highly accurate and reliable, visible from the transparent case-back with its commemorative inscription “170th Anniversary – 1851 – 2021 – Tiffany & Co – Patek Philippe”.

In terms of collectibility, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-018 is considered one of the most desirable modern timepieces on the market, worn today by celebrities and royals alike.
