The door closes on the Nautilus 5711 with the Tiffany Blue Patek Philippe model. Find out more about this encore timepiece!
It’s the end of a very lucrative era, and collectors are salivating at this final release. The stainless steel, Tiffany blue Patek Philippe will forever live in infamy.
Philippe owner president Thierry Stern referred to this release as the model’s “victory lap” during an exclusive interview with The New York Times.
First, a bit of background info!
History the Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5711
Patek Philippe originally released the Nautilus 3700 back in 1977. It was the brands take on a stainless steel, luxury sports watch, much like the Royal Oak.
The Nautilus was reinvented in 2006 with ref. 5711– an updated, modernized version. This sleek and stylish version has become the brand’s most sought after reference.
Prices have increased with demand, and many buyers are on waitlists up to 8 years long. Preowned Nautilus 5711’s are fetching almost double retail price, but good luck finding either!
Now, about that Tiffany Blue version.
Tiffany Blue Patek Philippe 5711
The Tiffany Blue Patek Philippe 5711 marks 170 years of partnership for the two iconic brands. Only 170 models were manufactured, which ups the ante even more.
