At the moment, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 is probably the world’s most desirable steel luxury sports watch. We have a brand spanking new (never worn) example with the popular blue dial.The reference 5711 is the modern interpretation of the iconic reference 3700 and was introduced in 2006 to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of the Nautilus. Why is this watch so valuable? First of all, Patek Philippe is inseparable from quality, class and prestige. In the world of luxury watches Patek Philippe is well known for high-quality watches with highly-complicated movements maintaining strict quality standards, which is why it’s the most prestigious watch brand worldwide. A person wearing Patek Philippe has a well-developed, refined and sophisticated taste. In order to maintain exclusivity all models, especially the Nautilus, are produced in small quantities and therefore scarce. The design of the 5711 remained true to the design of the initial Nautilus. It’s just as versatile; “A watch that works as well with a wet suit as it does with a dinner suit” as a 1976 print advertisement said.
Patek Philippe NautilusPatek Philippe has always been a watch brand for the lucky few as they are the creator of the most exclusive timepieces in the world. They made mechanical masterpieces to fit the exquisite gentleman or elegant lady, mainly out of precious metal. But after the success of the Royal Oak from Audemars Piguet, designed by the famous Gerald Genta, Patek had to go overboard and create a steel sports watch of their own.The Nautilus, named after a Submariner, first saw light in 1976 and it was being advertised as a watch that worked equally well with a wet suit as with a dinner suit. Being the most expensive steel sports watch when it was launched; it was interesting to see how it would pan out. Another great success was added to Mr. Genta and Patek Philippe’s history. Eversince they made a whole bunch of variations in different materials, dial colour and layouts. All having in common that the shape of the case looks like a porthole with protruding ‘ears’ on each side of the case and with an eight-sided, curved bezel. Another cool feature can be found on the dial as all of them are strongly characterized by horizontal embossed bars.
