Patek Philippe has always been a watch brand for the lucky few as they are the creator of the most exclusive timepieces in the world. Among these incredible masterpieces, in the last years there is one which has gained a really special place in people’s heart thanks to its unique design: the Nautilus. Be it for a woman or a man, with complications or time only, this model is now one of the most appreciated of all the history of horology. The Nautilus first saw light in 1976, coming from yet another great idea by Gerald Genta who firstly drew this iconic model while he was eating in a restaurant. It has been realized in many different materials and with many complications, all having in common 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. This particular model offered here is a very rare and unusual reference 5711/110P realized in platinum with bracelet and an automatic movement. This particular reference has been produced just to be offered directly to their best client of the boutique being produced in a very small quantity and not part of the public collection. After that it was produced as an anniversary limited edition. The conditions of preservation of the whole watch are perfect like it left the factory and to add further appeal to a model already extremely sought after in recent years is the precious bezel made of 32 baguette-cut diamonds of 3.79 CT each. The union of diamonds with the platinum structure of the entire watch gives more preciousness to a simply perfect object for a wrist. The black dial with the typical horizontal channels is a classic for a Nautilus, but the eleven baguette diamond indexes for the hours are a feature that is very difficult to find. This watch is sold with the Certificat d’Origine confirming its production in platinum and the presence of the diamonds on both bezel and dial.
