Patek Philippe Partners with Tiffany & Co For Final Variation of The 5711

A Patek Philippe timepiece is considered to be horological royalty. Therefore owning one is no easy task. Even more so when it’s one of the most sought-after watches in the world, like its recently discontinued steel Nautilus Ref. 5711. Harder still when its dial shines in Tiffany & Co’s signature baby blue. And practically impossible when only 170 will be made.

The last ever Patek Philippe Nautilus is a collaboration with Tiffany & Co featuring a blue dial and will likely be one of the hardest watches to get your hands-on with watch collectors already taking dibs at this one-of-a-kind collaboration. A rare unicorn in the world of timepieces where hype meets heritage, the new timepiece could possibly re-write the prices of watches on the second-hand market.

Honoring the 170th anniversary of Patek Philippe’s partnership with Tiffany, the timepieces will be available exclusively at Tiffany boutiques in New York, Beverly Hills, and San Francisco.

Tiffany & Co CEO Alexandre Arnault said in a statement:

Tiffany & Co. is honoured to partner with Patek Phillipe on this special timepiece to mark 170 years together. The Nautilus is one of the most iconic designs offered by Patek Phillipe and we are proud to introduce this special edition featuring Tiffany Blue dials to our most discerning clients.

The two brands have a closely intertwined history dating back to both being founded within two years of each other – Tiffany in 1837 and Philippe in 1839. The bond saw the American jeweler become the first US retailer of the Swiss watches and has spawned a partnership that includes limited-edition collaborations.

Tiffany & Co is the only retailer to have graced the dial of a Patek Philippe and the only one allowed to co-brand a timepiece – a few stamped with both the Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co logos. It has all the hallmarks of the iconic Nautilus, a Gerald Genta-designed case, horizontal embossing on the dial, luminous hands all crafted in stainless steel. The latest model is also signed by both party’s and etched on the sapphire-crystal back is “170th Anniversary 1851-2021 Tiffany & Co. – Patek Philippe.”

If you miss the allocation (and let’s face it, you probably will), you can try your luck on the auction block. Phillips will sell one lone piece on December 11 in New York, with 100 percent of proceeds going to The Nature Conservancy, a charity of Tiffany & Co.’s choosing. Tiffany & Co. will decide how all of the watches will be allocated to their clients.

The retail price is $52,635, higher than your standard 5711. Patek says this is the case with all of its special editions, as a result of the additional work that goes into producing a small series.
