The first iteration of the Nautilus was the reference 3700, which was released in 1976. This reference was one of the first high-end luxury watches made exclusively out of steel. At the time, it was a ground-breaking approach, especially considering the quartz crisis hitting the traditional Swiss industry. Watch brands such as Patek Philippe felt the need to offer something different. Ultimately this audacious move paid off and the Nautilus quickly became a central piece in many collections.
Over time there have been many versions of the Nautilus including versions in precious metals.
In 2006, 30 years after the initial release of the Nautilus ‘Jumbo’, Patek introduced the reference 5711/1A which became an instant success subject to an extensive waiting list.
This particular watch made in stainless steel, comes as a complete set including the original invoice and Certificate of origin.
