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 it’s round shaped case and classical watches, therefore, due to the high number of sport watches produced in the industry, Mr Genta decided to design a sport watch and took his inspiration in the Nautical arts and more specifically from a ship’s porthole. This design had an immediate success and is now an unquestionable collection in the Patek Philippe dynasty.

The width bezel gives a large vision on the dial as the horizon when watching through an 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 to touch a large public of watch passionates.

Years after years, the Nautilus collection’s success was colossal also due to the new versions released with a larger case or a sapphire case-back. It is considered as the must-to-have timepiece for man or woman’s lifestyle as it combines elegance, sporty and a timeless design.

*The most famous reference of the collection today has the “5711” badge since 2006 but prior to that the elder brother was 3711, the present watch is the very coveted white gold reference 3711/1G-001.
Introduced in 2004, nicknamed “The Jumbo” it was a more modern version with a see-through caseback, the movement had the ‘Geneva Seal’ certification and it was produced for about 2 years only, discontinued when the 5711/1a was released.
