WHY WE PICKED THIS WATCH
An icon on the wrist, the Nautilus Ref. 5711 continues to be one of the most popular Patek Philippe watches ever made. Designed by Gerald Genta, the Nautilus is one of the first luxury sports watches brought to market, an enduring representation of contemporary 70s design. This stunning reference almost often sells well above retail—and it's also the closest descendant of the coveted Ref. 3700 harking back to Genta's original flawless design language.
This particular timepiece in rose gold on a leather strap represents a rarefied collector's treat, as a now discontinued release from 2009. Visually, it stands out from the others with the crocodile leather strap working in tandem with the dark dial to contrast the precious metal case. It's in spectacular like-new condition with a rose gold buckle and comes complete with a box and archival papers from Patek Philippe. A beauty indeed.
