Trading Faces: Patek Philippe’s Green Dial Nautilus Captivates Watch Collectors

There is no doubt the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 timepiece is the most coveted watch model in the world.

With a waitlist spanning close to 10 years – watch collectors and timepiece enthusiasts around the world are willing to wait even longer to add this vintage timepiece to their collection.

While news of its discontinuation was confirmed by Patek Philippe in January this year, 2021 simultaneously marks the release of its green-dial replacement in July – and the watch is already following in its predecessor’s revered footsteps.

The new Ref. 5711/1A-014 steel sports watch is so sought-after even family members of the Patek Philippe President, Theirry Stern, can’t get their hands on one.

“Even my sons are asking, ‘Can I have one?’, Stern told WatchPro in an interview. “But the answer is no. On the positive side, though, it’s part of the beauty and myth of Patek Philippe.”

A factory-sealed Ref. 5711/1A-014 model sold at a Monaco auction for over A$641,000 in July this year. That’s 11 times higher than its original price of A$47,641.

While the star is the green sunburst dial 5711, altogether there are four new Patek Philippe Nautilus faces for 2021. Here’s a closer look at the incredibly esteemed new Patek Philippe Nautilus watches for 2021.

The star of the show is the new release of the cult model Patek Nautilus with a brand new olive green sunburst dial. The new shade, never before seen on a Nautilus, replaces the traditional blue-black dial of the 5711/1A-010.

The design is the same as the iconic model – a satin-brushed and polished white gold case, bezel and bracelet accented by luminescent hands and hour markers. Water-resistant to 120 meters, the watch is equipped with a self-winding calibre 26-330 S C, introduced in 2019, that’s visible through the transparent sapphire crystal case-back.

The new Nautilus 5711 elegant sports watch gets a glamour upgrade in the form of 32 baguette-cut 3.6ct diamonds. Cut in a slightly trapezoidal shape instead of a traditional rectangle, the diamonds match the rounded curves of the Nautilus’ unique shape. The distinctive octagonal bezel still comes in stainless steel with the diamonds highlighting the new olive-green dial. An embossed horizontal motif and sunburst decoration complete the look. Inside, the same self-winding calibre 26-330 S C is again visible through a transparent sapphire case-back.

If stainless steel isn’t your style, Patek Philippe also released a Nautilus Haute Joaillerie in a new 18K Rose Gold set with 2,553 brilliant-cut internally flawless diamonds. The case, bezel and bracelet are entirely paved with the Top Wesselton 12.69 carats stones. Rows of stones also line the dial set in a small raised wave pattern – a flashback to the other Ladies’ Nautilus watches.

Other features include the luminescent-coated hands, applied hour-markers and Arabic numerals. The inner workings are the same as the other models – a self-winding calibre visible through a transparent sapphire crystal case-back.

Rounding off the new Nautilus 2021 release sees a reemergence of the iconic sunburst blue dial, yet this time with gold applied hour markers in a luminescent coating. It’s set in a Travel Time Chronograph, calibre CH 28-520 C FUS, made in 18K Rose Gold. The new model features a self-winding flyback chronograph, a dual time-zone function and a date display. The new Patek Philippe Nautilus Gold is a thoroughly modern reinterpretation of the company’s classic Nautilus collection.
