Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co | New York City | 17 pieces | Limited Edition
|Title||New York | Manhattan | Patek Philippe | Nautilus | 5711/1A-018|
|Edition||Edition of 17 signed art prints + 1APs|
This limited series Nautilus timpiece celebrates the 170-year alliance between Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co. that remains one of the longest and most enduring relationships in all of watchmaking.
The Nautilus reference 5711 is the modern iteration of the first luxury sports wristwatch by Patek Philippe, first launched in 1976 as the reference 3700. Premiering in 2006, the reference 5711 updated the Nautilus for modern times with new innovations, such as an exhibition caseback, and an in-house, self-winding movement with center seconds.
Selected by Tiffany’s founder, Charles Lewis Tiffany for the cover of its annual Blue Book published beginning in 1845, the dial’s “Tiffany Blue” color is immediately recognizable for its distinctive shade and vibrancy. Tiffany Blue is now registered as a color trademark by Tiffany & Co., standardized as a private custom color by Pantone as “1837 Blue” – with the number marking the year of Tiffany’s founding. Not only featuring a Tiffany Blue-colored dial for the first time ever, the dial is also double stamped with the exclusive “Tiffany & Co.” signature at 6 o’clock paired with the Patek Philippe logo at 12 o’clock – both in black print. The luminous, baton hour markers and hands are in blackened 18K white gold, perfectly matching the printing, while providing outstanding legibility against the dial’s light blue lacquered surface.
