To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Patek Philippe Nautilus replica watch, Patek has decided …
The mens Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1P replica 40th Anniversary we are presenting today is actually based on this model. The first edition is based on the classical – and certainly the most sough-after – 3 hands editions of the Nautilus, the Ref. 5711.
The platinum case – thus with a diamond incrusted on the bezel at 6 (like all platinum Patek watches) – measures 40mm in diameter (from 10 to 4 – and around 44mm large, from ear to ear), respecting the proportions of the current references. No shape differences can be noticed either. The case still has the rounded ears (not straight ones like the original 3700) and its integrated bracelet with polished central links and brushed surfaces for the rest. The case is brushed on flat surfaces, beveled on its edges (so is the bracelet) and flanks are brushed. No doubt that the execution of this case will be perfect, as usual with the brand.
Not entirely new to the Nautilus, platinum has already been used on this reference, even if it has never been officially listed in the catalogue (ref. 5711/1P – see our friend SJX for a hands-on). Extremely rare, this edition already featured a blue dial, much brighter than the normal steel 5711/1A.
This Swiss-made fake Patek Philippe watch already exists in the catalogue in non-limited editions, in steel with dark blue dial (5711/1A-010), in steel with white dial (5711/1A-011) and in pink gold with a chocolate dial (5711/1R-001). For the 40th Another difference with the steel edition is the date circled by a white gold window. The hands are white gold and faithful to the traditional design of the Nautilus. Main differences are the baguette diamonds for the indexes and the logo embossed at 6 (40 – 1976-2016).
anniversary, this watch will come in solid platinum 950.
Made in solid yellow gold, it shows a bright blue color (much lighter than the steel edition) obtained by PVD and with a bright/dark gradation from the inside to the outside, still with embossed horizontal lines and sun-ray pattern. The logo at 12 is printed on a flat area (while the dial is entirely embossed on the blue steel edition), however that’s something the gold edition also has.
Inside the case, no changes, as the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1P 40th Anniversary features the same movement as the steel edition, the Calibre 324 SC (seconde centrale) with Patek seal, Gyromax balance wheel, Spiromax balance spring and 4Hz frequency. The movement is visible from the caseback and finished with nice details (Geneva stripes, beveled angles, circular graining, gold rotor…).
The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1P 40th Anniversary will be limited to 700 pieces. The dial of the high-end Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1P copy 40th Anniversary is certainly the main difference here.
