Patek Philippe Nautilus 5811 Bids Farewell to Iconic 5711, Presents Itself in 18k White Gold
Patek Philippe announced the 18k white gold Nautilus 5811/1G-001, the successor to the discontinued blue dial 5711/1A-010. It received a few modest changes while retaining some of the core features of its predecessor, like the 120-meter water-resistance, flat sapphire crystal over the dial, and the overall look.
The new timepiece is slightly larger than its predecessor at 41mm, but takes its 8.2mm thickness. The main part is presented with a two-part case, similar to visuals of the 1970s original Gerald Genta-designed Nautilus watches. It also receives a new patented crown lever system and a new in-house 4Hz automatic caliber 26-330 S C movement with 28,800 bpm. It is 3.3mm thick with 35 to 45 hours of power reserve. It shows the time with central seconds and the date, along with a hacking seconds complication. The movement also has a 21k gold automatic rotor visible through the rear case.
While details are few as of press time, Patek Philippe Nautilus 5811 reference 5811/1G-001 is expected to be available sometime in 2024.
