The assumption of my overview of the famed Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711″Blue” watch (reference 5711/1A-010) focuses on a single easy question:”Why is this steel sports lifestyle view, together with all its love handles, persistently in high demand?” To illustrate my point, before the publication of this review, Patek Philippe decided to raise the purchase price of this watch by 20%. Though I’ve always held a wonderful respect for your Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 retail replica watches , I’ve never had a specific desire to own one. Furthermore, I am a fan of watches on tapering bracelets in addition to true, resilient movements. In certain sense, the 2 watches are just two cats in precisely the exact same litter, together with Audemars Piguet picking the feisty kitty and Patek Philippe obtaining the smooth-haired young one. You can not definitively say that one is better than another –although I am sure most, if not all, would concur that Patek Philippe gets the superior movement.

Given the low-profile presence of the Nautilus on the wrist, however, it has never been my cup of tea. I have a tendency to enjoy slightly more assertive layouts a little more, and the negative flanks of the Nautilus never really grew on me. With that said, I was quite impressed with my last hands-on experience using a 5711-style Nautilus, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1P rose gold replica watches , the 20th anniversary strong platinum edition with diamond hour markers. This version, on the contrary, is a steel watch that (previously ) sells at just under $25,000 USD, but is often found for much higher prices, and of course that the waitlist. It’s more difficult to get than the usual ceramic Daytona, and nobody is really quite able to figure out why. In any event, the 5711 in blue is a hot luxury commodity, so even pre-owned versions are easily able to sell at retail cost.

Could this be a part of this”Genta result” Is the magic of Gerald Genta’s designs fueling this demand for this high-end timepiece beyond its anticipated lifespan? The overdue watch designer is probably more popular now than during his life, although I don’t think that I’ve cracked the code of what makes most of his designs so interesting, but I really do think that this Nautilus assisted me begin putting the bits together. 1 thing is for sure–the famed standing of these designs wouldn’t be possible without Patek Philippe┬ánautilus 5711 blue dial fake watch being a quality watchmaker.

I feel that one way to love the real talent of Gerald Genta is to see him as a master bracelet designer. He appeared to understand how to blend an elegant and legible dial with the ideal bracelet. At the time Genta became involved in design, merchandise design for watches was just as significant as product design of, for instance, cars. Everybody had them and used them, so because of the vast array of these things, people were really interested in unique designs. Thus, Genta was designing something that could be equally worn and seen by everybody. In this case, the individuals wearing the watches were the rich elite that comprised Patek Philippe’s consumer foundation in the 1970s, and it’s the exact same demographic, albeit in larger numbers, that still wear Patek Philippe nautilus 5711 prix replica watches today.

My judgment is that the Patek Philippe Nautilus is an excellent example of a men’s bracelet jewelry which just so happens to have a watch attached to it. The steel construction of this bracelet and case prevents it from being overly pretentious as well. Not only does a very respected watchmaker provide the layout the finishing and construction it deserves, but in addition, it equips the watch with the finest non-complicated mechanical movements. Contrary to Rolex, the movement isn’t hidden behind a good caseback.

The motion is a fine example of what you should look for in a simple yet high-end sports watch. What makes the grade 324 S C striking beyond its own high level of ending is its slim profile. The motion is merely 3.3mm thick, and in all, the Nautilus keeps a water resistance of 120m despite being only 8.3mm thick. The automated rotor is in solid 21k gold, which actually means it weighs enough to keep the winding efficiency high. I would say performance is likely on level or within a respectable margin of Rolex’s”Superlative Chronometers.” Finishing, though, is a different story–Patek Philippe nautilus 5711 listenpreis clone watch lavishes the surfaces together with Cotes de Geneve stripes and small, tasteful sections of perlage, with the latter being my favorite element of this motion.


A number of years back, Patek Philippe nautilus yupoo replica watches introduced a new Ref. 5980/1A with a white dial (such as laymen: that is the Nautilus Chronograph). We at Monochrome Watches were somewhat surprised to discover, at Baselworld 2014, that Patek had already discontinued the steel 5980/1A version and replaced it with a steel Nautilus Chronograph with another time zone, like the one in the Aquanaut Travel Time Ref. 5164.

Since we’re talking about Patek here, productions numbers are somewhat low, and this reference is currently a very rare bird which we anticipate to become quite collectible. Even though the additional steel 5980/1A models are not as uncommon (but super-rare in comparison to a Rolex Submariner, for instance), we would not be surprised to see their prices rise today that the requirement can’t be fulfilled at Patek boutiques but only on the secondary market. But now, let us take a look at the version that combined the family 2014, whose additional second-time-zone function works exactly like the one in the aforementioned Patek Philippe┬ánautilus perpetual imitation watch Aquanaut Travel Time, introduced in 2011 (see here).

On the dial, we see that the chronograph register at 6 o’clock, and, very similar to that about the Aquanaut Travel Time, it sports a pointer-date, positioned on the upper part of the dial. The date indication is connected to the local time, and that’s your travel destination. When traveling, it can be adjusted both backward and forward, to follow the date of the time zone where you are. On the right and left on the dial are two small apertures, which signify day and night in both the local time zone along with also the home time zone. The chronograph pushers — to begin, stop and reset to zero — are located on the left-hand side of this case, just like on the Chronograph Ref. 5980/1A. 5990/1A has only one 60-minute counter. While you won’t have the ability to quantify how long intercontinental flight took anymore, the altered subdial is cleaner and easier to read. With the additional pointer-date enroll, that is a good thing.

On the left-hand of this case are just two pushers for altering the local time zone when you’re traveling. Design-wise, Patek Philippe nautilus iced out replica watches did very well here, because these pushers look like the typical”ears” of the case. But, adding them pressured Patek to change the model’s typical two-part case for a more customary three-part case. Even though the whole case construction has shifted, the diameter remains 40.5 mm and the case is still water-resistant to 120 meters. Also the total case thickness is not much greater (the official information is not supplied ) than the 5980’s depth of 12.6 mm. When we watched the first images, we”feared” the watch would be too thick and too busy on the dial. After trying it on the wrist, then we are convinced that our fears were groundless.

Our conclusion: With regards to size and comfort, the 5990/1A is more or less equal to this 5980/1A. However, in terms of operation, the 5990/1A is superior to the older 5980/1A and we believe that this is precisely the kind of watch that many of Patek’s clients — using their daily business-travel life — are searching for.
