Originally introduced in 1976 as Reference 3700, the Patek Philippe Nautilus was a groundbreaking watch that strived for luxury and modernity through the use of steel and an integrated bracelet. Over the decades, the timepiece underwent minor changes but always remaining faithful to his unmistakable style. Inheriting the design of the reference 3700, the reference 5711 stays true to its lineage of luxurious sporty steel wristwatches, featuring a very practical combination of time and date functions cased in an octagonal shape. Introduced in 2006 and discontinued in 2021, the reference 5711 is extremely sought after by collectors. Building on the original Jumbo Nautilus, the present 5711 features sweep center seconds and a slightly larger case with a sapphire case back that invites the wearer to appreciate the movement inside. This specimen has a three-part construction case crafted from steel with an integrated bracelet. The dial is gradient blue in color with the signature horizontal grooves that play with light. The pattern is meant to evoke the teak wood decks on boats and the color adds the oceanic nautical theme of the watch. The present ref. 5711 is preserved in an absolutely stunning barely worn condition. Now with a sweep centre seconds mechanism added to the over-mentioned date function, the model quickly focused the attention of Patek Philippe collectors, it is now highly sought after and considered as a must-have within contemporary collections. Furthermore, it is accompanied by the Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin and all its original accessories.
