To an era when watches were not yet considered a form of investment in their own right. To all the years since 1976, when the Nautilus was already part of the Patek Philippe Replica repertoire, when new dial colours – whether deep blue, white, turquoise blue or even green – did not yet trigger notifications on smartphones. They may not have been better times, but they were a time when the Nautilus was, all things considered, worn more as a matter of course.
The new Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5811/1G-001
The material’s warm shine clearly stands out for connoisseurs in comparison to the steel appearance of the predecessor Reference 5711. Also, the feel of the model, which is as perfectly smooth and fine as pure gold on the wrist, is unique. The Cheap Patek Philippe Replica 5811 is the new one here – it should and must be recognisable, even if it’s only the small details that make a big difference overall.
The Reference 5811 has grown to 41 mm, with a height of 8.2 mm. Thus, it is not significantly bigger than the 5711 with its 40 mm, yet 0.1 mm flatter than its predecessor. The increase in size matches well to current global tastes. It’s not without reason that the sports watches of the 21st century are constantly getting larger.
Exactly as small and discreet as the increase of one millimetre in diameter sounds, it’s just as obvious on the wrist. The 100% Quality Swiss Replica Patek Philippe will still wear well on average-sized wrists with a circumference of plus-minus 18 centimetres, but those with bigger wrists, on whom the 5711 might have looked a bit lost, will benefit most.

On the dial, you can see something Patek Philippe has continued to develop in recent years: in-house excellence when it comes to dial making. The green-black gradient on the 5270P-014 presented this year, the blue dial with black gradient and vertical satin finish on the reference 5236P last year, and now a combination of both: the High Quality Patek Philippe 5811/1G Replica dial in blue sunburst with black gradient. Depending on the incidence of light, the blue-black colour tones on the dial change; a feature sure to tempt future owners to take countless extra glances at their wrists.
It is the successor of the calibre 324, consists of 212 parts and has a diameter of just 27 mm. Thus, it easily fits into the 41 mm white gold case, nestling behind a sapphire crystal. The case is water-resistant to 120 m – just like the original Nautilus was. Last but not least, the 5811 features the new patented folding clasp, which is also used on the other Nautilus references.
Go for more Gold: The Nautilus reference 5712/1R
The story of the elder Cheap Patek Philippe Replica series also continues to be told, and the second new addition to the Nautilus range, the rose-gold 5712/1R, will also be a dream for many. Solid precious metal bracelets, after all, have a special charm in pretty much all Patek Philippe references.
In the newly presented 5712/1R, rose-gold meets a black-brown dial – a combination that is as dazzling as it is heart-warming. When it comes to precious metals, the Patek Philippe Replica Watches was previously available exclusively with leather straps, making them probably the most discreet Nautilus models of all. They will continue to be offered in this form, at least for the time being.
It’s fascinating to see the new Patek Philippe Replica next to the new 5990. Both are Nautilus models, both made of white metal, both with blue dials – yet with very different effects. The whiter typography, the adjusted dimensions, the extra bit of complication, the consequent loss of purism: presumably, the excitement about these nuances is not immediately apparent to non-watch enthusiasts. But there are fewer and fewer of these – as the current high demand for valuable timepieces impressively proves.
