It’s been exactly 40 years since one of Patek Philippe’s premiere timepieces has hit the scene, and we’re talking about the brand’s iconic Nautilus. As the years went by, this stunning watch has been constantly improved upon and now the legendary Swiss watchmaker has decided to introduce two limited-edition Patek Philippe Nautilus 40th Anniversary timepieces, meant to celebrate this amazing legacy.
The first watch, named 5711/1P, is a three hand model that will only adorn 700 wrists, while the second version, called 5976/1G, is a chronograph jewel limited to only 1,300 pieces. To our surprise, the Nautilus 5711/1P will be a little more expensive than the other watch, featuring a 44 mm case that’s crafted in platinum and 18-karat white gold hands.
And with a self-winding 324-SC movement with Gyromax® balance and Spiromax® balance spring, this watch should definitely be part of your Christmas shopping list.
On the other hand, the 5976/1G chronograph shows off an embossed dial, as well as hour markers set with princess-cut and baguette diamonds. An 18k white gold case and the CH 28-520 self-winding flyback chronograph movement with 327 parts are also part of the package.
As you can see, both timepieces will feature a chic blue dial and they will come in a special anniversary box that also contains the Certificate of Origin and an anniversary document. This box was made out of brown natural cork, an authentic replica of the stylish 1976 original.
If you ask us, these watches are already collectibles, with the 40th Anniversary Nautilus Ref: 5976/1G costing $90,000 USD, while the 5711/1P will set you back around $113,400. Which one do you like more?
