Patek Philippe: New Nautilus 5811, 5712 & 711818 October 2022
Patek Philippe pay tribute its cult Nautilus model with three new variations including the new 5811/1G, the successor of the legendary reference 5711.
NAUTILUS MOON PHASES Ref.5712/1R
The Ref. 5712/1R-001 Nautilus with an analog date, moon phases, and a power-reserve indicator (ultra-thin self-winding caliber 240 PS IRM C LU) comes in a new version that combines a rose-gold case and bracelet with a brown sunburst dial and a delicate black gradation to the outside. The displays of the three complications are arranged in an unusual but very legible way. The case, water resistant to 60 meters, the octagonal bezel, and the comfortable integrated link bracelet are enhanced with the elegant contrast of polished and satin finishes applied entirely by hand.

NAUTILUS LADIES AUTOMATIC Ref.7118/1300R
The Nautilus ladies’ watch comes in a new jewelry version in which the subtle shimmer of rose gold harmonizes with the warm color nuances of spessartite gems. The Ref. 7118/1300R-001 Nautilus Joaillerie has a bezel with 68 baguette-cut spessartites that show a fascinating double-color gradation: one between the cognac-colored stones at 12 and 6 o’clock, the other between the champagne-colored stones at 9 and 3 o’clock. The dynamic aspect endows this creation with a decidedly modern touch. This color harmony is rounded out by the dial on which eleven ogive-shaped, cognac-colored spessartites serve as hour markers. The refined finishing facets of the self-winding caliber 324 S C movement can be admired through the sapphire-crystal case back. The bracelet is secured with a patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp that has four independent safety catches. (Price €. 83,470)
NAUTILUS DATE, SWEEP SECONDS Ref.5811/1G
Patek Philippe presents a new evolution of a legendary watch design that was launched with the Ref. 3700 Nautilus in 1976, of which the Ref. 5711 (launched in 2006 for the 30-year anniversary of the Nautilus and retired from the collection in 2021) was the most recent iteration. It is followed by the new Ref. 5811/1G-001 Nautilus that has grown slightly from 40 to 41 mm. It comes in white gold and a blue sunburst dial with a black gradation as well as several technical and aesthetic refinements. The case is water-resistant to 120 meters and composed of two parts – an interesting reminiscence of the original 1976 Nautilus. It features a new pull-out piece lever system (patent pending) that allows the winding stem to be pulled out from the dial side. The self-winding caliber 26-330 S C can be seen through the sapphire-crystal case back. Its stop-seconds mechanism allows the time to be set with one-second accuracy. (Price €. 70,350)
The bracelets of the Nautilus Refs. 5712/1R-001 and 5811/1G-001 are fitted with a patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp that is secured with four independent catches. Additionally, they have a new lockable adjustment system with which the bracelets can be easily, quickly and safely adjusted by 2 or 4 mm for added everyday wearing comfort.
