Info Our fees

Introduced in 2006 as a 30th anniversary celebration of the original Gerald Genta designed Nautilus, the 5711 has grown in status to a point that eclipses the 1976 original.

Looking all but identical to the 3700/1, the dial is blue-black with horizontal ridges, luminous baton markers and a date window at 3 o’clock. On the reverse, a sapphire caseback reveals the manufacture Caliber 324 SC inside. This self-winding movement incorporates several of Patek Philippe’s innovations. These include the four-spoke Gyromax® balance wheel and the Spiromax® balance-spring in Silinvar®. The immaculately finished movement is topped off with a 21K gold winding rotor.

Popular on launch it was readily available at retail for much of it’s life but as the trend for steel sports increased, it became THE steel sports watch to own. Patek produce very few watches in steel and most of these are Lady’s quartz so a modest increase in popularity lead to waiting lists which grew, in time, to over a decade.

Inaccessibility breeds desirability and so over the last 3yrs prices in the secondary market have soared. This was brought to a head last year when Patek confirmed the long-circulating rumours that the 5711 was to be discontinued. For those with a 5711, the market is clear, but for sheer rarity, a double factory sealed example, bought from retail but never opened, is hard to beat. From 2017 onwards Patek Philippe retailers were instructed to retain the outer carton that the watches arrived in, making ‘single sealed’ the best you could get, but for a collector wanting that full ‘first owner’ experience this is the watch to have.

This watch is offered as it came from Switzerland still in its sealed card carton. The box and papers are complete and in immaculate condition.
