If you’re even remotely into watches, you’ll be well aware of the stratospheric prices the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 has garnered since the announcement that it would be discontinued in January this year. To be frank, it’s utter madness. Today, however, the show goes on with a new Olive Green Nautilus 5711/1A-014.
Snuck into the frenzy of Watches & Wonders Patek Philippe unveiled the Gerald Genta icon with a dial resplendent in a hue that has never appeared before in the Nautilus collection. There also appears to be a revised date window, framed like the indices that surround it.
The elegant green shade is emphasised with a gentle sunburst finish that harmonizes with the light reflected from the 40mm x 8.3mm steel case. Further enhancing the green, is the option of a 32 baguette-cut diamond-set bezel – sharing a steel case, not white gold.
Inside the Olive Green Nautilus Ref. 5711/1A-014 case, water-resistant to 120m, beats the self-winding Caliber 26‑330 S C – which debuted in 2019 -visible through a sapphire crystal case-back.
Suffice as to say, this piece will be as impossible to come by as its predecessor. Local RRP is yet to be confirmed, however, US pricing sits at $34,893 for the steel and $94,624 for steel and diamonds.
