At $100k each Patek Philippe launches 40th anniversary limited edition Nautilus watches

One of the most remarkable of the Patek Philippe timepieces – “The Nautilus” reached its 40th milestone this year. And to ensure the anniversary celebrations are nothing short of grand, the brand has introduced two new luxury pieces – the reference 5711/1P three-hand model and 5976/1G chronograph version that offer an ultimate tribute to the Nautilus existence.

Each of the limited edition watches features bold lateral ridges which are a fitting amalgamation of elegance and sporty functionality, much like the very first in the lineage. The 44 mm Nautilus Ref. 5711/1P comes in a definitive blue 18-carat gold dial and features a flawless rare white Top Wesselton diamond set into the bezel above the lugs along with similarly carved 18-karat white gold baton hour markers. Further, it boasts of a self-winding caliber 324 S C movement with a 21-karat gold central rotor, a Spiromax balance spring and a sapphire case back – all presented in a luxurious box made of polished stainless steel frames and iconic hinged covers.

Similar to its counterpart, the chronograph is embellished with a flawless Top Wesselton baguette and princess-cut diamonds that come wrapped in a classic cork box.
