Drum roll please: In addition to seven other new introductions, Patek Philippe today announced a new time-and-date Nautilus model as a part of the permanent collection. Compared to its predecessor, the legendary Ref. 5711 premiered in 1976, the Ref. 5811/1G-001 has an increased diameter of 41mm and a svelte height of 8.3mm. The sought-after luxury sport watch comes in white gold and features a blue sunburst dial with a black gradation towards the periphery.
The case remains water-resistant to 120 meters and is composed of two parts, just like the design of the original Nautilus. It is equipped with a new pull-out piece lever system (patent pending) that allows the winding stem to be pulled out from the dial side.
At the heart of the debutante ticks the self-winding caliber 26-330 S C with a stop-seconds function that can be admired through the sapphire-crystal case back.
The bracelets is fitted with a patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp that is secured with four independent catches. In addition, it sports a new lockable adjustment system that allows the adjustment by 2 or 4mm. Retail is marked at $69,785.
