40 Years Ago
Just a week ago, we distributed a refreshed adaptation of our Patek Philippe Nautilus versus Audemars Piguet Royal Oak comparison article . When talking haute horlogerie, I need to concede that these two Patek Philippe Reviews are certainly my number one pieces. The amount I like other very good quality Patek Philippe Reviews like a Patek Philippe 3940 or 5140, A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 or Vacheron Constantin Overseas Ultra-Thin, nothing comes near how I feel about the Nautilus and Royal Oak. Today, I was to some degree astonished to see the new Nautilus 40th Anniversary models popping up out of nowhere.
That I picked the Royal Oak for my private assortment had additionally to do with the cash to spend, around then, it was far underneath 10K Euro, while the Nautilus was – on the off chance that you could get one at all – practically twofold that sum. Used, new or vintage, it was throughout 20K Euro in 2009. I’ve attempted the Nautilus 5711/1A for a couple of days from my partner Gerard and it is a great Patek Philippe Reviews Besides the value, there is no purpose behind me not to get one (at some point).
In 1972, Genta substantiated himself (before he worked for Omega and late 1960s he began his own plan organization) with the Royal Oak. Albeit not a success at start, he again utilized his plan abilities for an extravagance sports Patek Philippe Reviews in 1976 for the Nautilus. Later on again for the IWC Ingenieur, however some way or another that never turned into the achievement the Royal Oak and Nautilus are today. The main Nautilus was the reference 3700, we expounded on it here some time ago . The chalice for some, however as you most likely are aware, vintage isn’t for everybody. One need to know a great deal truly well these days to make a protected buy, and others just don’t like purchasing something so costly, used. All good. So there is the Nautilus 5711. Today’s likeness the 3700. The current Nautilus was brought into the world in 2006, 30 years after the underlying dispatch of the Nautilus.
1976 – 2016
Although the ur-Nautilus was the 3700, and the current comparable was brought into the world in 2006, different models traveled every which way. What might be said about the more modest 3800, or the 3710 with Roman numerals? Eventually, you can say that the Nautilus never disappeared in those 40 years. Some different brands honk with their xxth commemoration while there obviously have been holes where the model was not underway. Not with the Nautilus (or Royal Oak for that matter).
Below an outline of Patek’s Nautilus Patek Philippe Reviews a timeline.
Nautilus 40th Anniversary Models
In BaselWorld, Patek previously implied on something that would come up. In my best recollections, I thought this would be August. So August passed, and September passed, nothing happened. As I love the Nautilus, I ensured I didn’t miss a thing on the news channels, yet exactly when I believed that I maybe misconstrued, I saw a few snippets of Nautilus 40th Anniversary news today on Facebook and Instagram, coming from the British GQ magazine.
Today, Patek Philippe presents two Nautilus 40th commemoration models. One to commemorate the first Nautilus, the 5711. This time, a unique variant of 700 pieces dressed in platinum, the 5711/1P-001. This reference has a similar 40mm estimated case as the first Nautilus 3700/1A from 1976.
Inside the reference 5711/1P is the Patek type 324 S C development. A similar development utilized in the standard Nautilus 5711 model. Interesting actuality is that the dial of this Patek Philippe Reviews has a 18 carat yellow gold base, and has been covered with blue PVD. The commemoration logo is embellished as you can see. On this dial, there are 12 applied 18 carat gold markers with loaf precious stones (0.34ct). Cost on this model is supposed to be around 115K USD.
Patek Philippe concluded likewise to commemorate the acclaimed 5980 chronograph version of the Nautilus, with a white gold model (reference 5976/1G). This is a 44mm breadth version (44mm is estimated from 10 to 4 o’clock, from one drag to another or 9 to 3 o’clock, including crown it is somewhat over 49mm). of that flyback chronograph presented in 2006 interestingly. There will be 1300 pieces made of this white gold Nautilus Flyback Chronograph 5976/1G.
Also this model has the blue dial, yet various materials have been utilized compared to the 5711/1P. The base of the blue PVD dial is metal, and the precious stones amount to 0.29 ct in total. The development is the programmed type CH28-520 C. A flyback segment wheel chronograph development with vertical grip. It is a genuine chronograph development, with an extra module for the schedule (just 1.43mm for this additional module). Price on this model is supposed to be around 95K USD.
Both Nautilus 40th Anniversary models are conveyed in the popular stopper box, similar to the 3700/1A. A good thought by Patek Philippe to snatch back on some ‘heritage’ for the packaging.
I haven’t seen the Patek Philippe Reviews in the tissue, so it is of little use to proceed to keep in touch with you my opinion about them. I accept that you can possibly do this in a right manner when you have seen and grasped the Patek Philippe Reviews. The way that Patek Philippe chose to present them in valuable metals just, and make them restricted, likewise restricts the chance of truly checking on them inside and out. I’m almost certain these Patek Philippe Reviews are sold out as of now, as the fanbase of the Patek Philippe Nautilus is huge, in light of the hanging tight records for certain models and the bartering results on Nautili.
Even however I didn’t see the 5711/1P or 5976/1G yet, in any event I can mention to you what I’ve expected before today. I expected a treated steel Nautilus, one that would have just two hands and a monobloc case, similar to the 3700. Audemars Piguet snatched back to their 5402ST Royal Oak in 2012 with their 40th commemoration, made it in tempered steel and not restricted to a x-measure of pieces. Patek Philippe isn’t Audemars Piguet however, or like some other brand out there. Patek understands what they are doing; knows their clients and likely definitely realized that these Nautilus 40th Anniversary models would break the web on October third 2016.
On the one hand, they don’t have to change the effective 5711/1A. There is a hanging tight rundown for them, for the love of all that is pure and holy. Then again, I – and with me presumably a lot more fans – couldn’t want anything more than to see a minuscule changed treated steel Nautilus for the fans.
