Yesterday, we showed unquestionably the most astonishing watch from Patek Philippe since years, the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 5524 . Today, there is another oddity that you may discover very traditional and notable, another release of the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711. In any case, attempt to recall how this watch broke Patek’s codes, back in 1976. It was a complete unforeseen watch that presently is a flat out work of art. For Baselworld 2015, it presently comes in rose gold with a (staggering) chocolate earthy colored dial.
The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 ‘Jumbo’ is one of the most refined games watch around and, along with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, is a legitimate symbol. Not just they share a similar creator – Gerald Genta – yet in addition a similar soul. The Patek anyway must be viewed as marginally more refined and discreet… except if it comes in a full gold bundle. Normally we, at Monochrome-Watches, are not the greatest aficionados of gold watches – at any rate of gold games watches. Nonetheless, here, with this combination of 18K rose gold and a chocolate earthy colored dial, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 becomes rich and desirable.
Of course the primary curiosity here is the dial – all things considered, its tone to be exact, as the rest stays as before. The Nautilus keeps its wonderful guilloché dial with flat lines and the magnificent reflections, that makes an energetic and valuable face, changing from dim earthy colored to light cream. The hands are coordinating the situation thus do the applied files – implying that both are made of 18K rose gold. One little detail that changes: the date is presently surrounded with a gold ring.
The other new component is, as you’ve as of now most likely saw, gold. This isn’t the principal Nautilus to come with a rose gold wristband and case – the chronograph ref. 5980 additionally comes in this metal – however it’s a first for the ‘Jumbo’, the most straightforward, old style and notable version of the Nautilus. For the rest, the 5711 remaining parts in fact indistinguishable from the steel version, which means a 3-hand watch with date at 3, water impervious to 120 meters and highlighting the pleasantly completed (stepped with the Patek Philippe Seal ) type 324.
Once on the wrist, the combination of rose gold and chocolate earthy colored is truly engaging, exquisite and refined. You’d be astonished to discover this watch (nearly) downplayed. Obviously, the steel release is more cautious however the delicate shade of the rose gold permits the Nautilus 5711/1R-001 to fly under the radar – at any rate for a full gold watch.
