Patek Philippe has been making information with the Nautilus for a number of years. The most important? That the 5711-1A-010 used to be going to be discontinued, as Cara Barrett reported in January of this year. Scorching at the heels of that revelation, Patek Philippe has simply introduced that the 5711-1A-010 might be changed by way of a brand new fashion, with a inexperienced dial – the 5711/1A-014, with a sunburst olive-green dial, and a model with the similar dial, however with a diamond-set bezel – the ref. 5711/1300-001. Each fashions are in steel; each are 40mm x 8.3mm, and each are operated by way of the self-winding, central rotor caliber 26-330 S C J SE, with date, and with a silicon Spiromax balance spring. The 26-330 SC has been provide within the Nautilus 5711 since 2019.
The brand new model of the 5711 will retail for $34,893 in steel (for the 5711-1A-014) and $92,624 for the diamond-set 5711-1300-001.
This information is minutes old as I write, however it is already spreading like wildfire throughout social media, confirming the fanatical consideration the 5711 has garnered for itself lately. The brand new model is sowing some confusion – it’s, in reality, steel, now not white gold, as used to be suspected by way of some 5711 watchers – however it’s, excluding for the brand new dial tone, in large part the 5711 the world has come to grasp and love.
I will’t bring to mind any reason why particularly why the brand new 5711 should not be as fashionable as its predecessor – the olive inexperienced sunburst dial will take some being used to, like several main beauty replace to an current fashion, however it is surely no much less complementary aesthetically than the blue dial, albeit olive inexperienced has a quite extra utilitarian vibe than blue.
The diamond-set ref. 5711-1300-001 is perhaps quite tougher. Blue is a extra harmonious fit with diamonds than olive inexperienced – a minimum of it kind of feels to be able to me to start with look, even if there is no exchange for seeing the combo in particular person sooner than making any type of ultimate judgement.
Nevertheless, I believe that rather a couple of Patek creditors and enthusiasts are going to shoot first and ask questions later – with the frenzied acquisitiveness that the 5711 has produced lately, the brand new model turns out a watch whose model reference must have “ASAP” hooked up to it.
