Since its inception in 1976, the Patek Philippe Nautilus series has been the leader of luxury sports watches.

In 2020, after the current model Ref. 5711/1A of the Nautilus series announced the discontinuation of the white dial, and next is the blue dial of the same model will stop in 2021. The recent price of 5711/1A has already shown a significant upward trend. The news of the suspension of production has exacerbated the soaring price situation, causing a big wave in the watch industry.

Looking back at Nautilus 5711/1A again, its excellent manufacturing skill is still stunning. Do you all know? The Nautilus 5711/1A, which makes people have mixed feelings, actually has several variants model.

This article will give readers a detailed introduction to the differences between the Patek Philippe Nautilus series 5711/1A-001 and 5711/1A-010. The difference between these two watches and the 5711/1A-011, which was released in 2012 also explained in the text below.

What is the difference between Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-001 and 5711/1A-010?

【Previous model】Nautilus Large Ref.5711/1A-001

This watch was born in 2006 and is the first 5711 watch in the Nautilus series. The official model number is 5711/1A-001. Whether it is the design of the dial or the movement it carries, it is the same as the 5711/1A-010 that will introduce next.

【Current model】Nautilus Large Ref.5711/1A-010

5711/1A-010 is the current style of Nautilus Large 5711/1A. (At the time of writing this article, the official website still refers to this style as the current model). It released in 2010, and the basic specifications are as follows:

◆ Production period: 2010 ~ present
◆ Diameter: 40 mm
◆ Thickness: Approximately 8.3 mm
◆ Material: Stainless Steel (SS)
◆ Glass: Sapphire crystal glass, Sapphire glass back case
◆ Waterproof: 120 meters

◆ Weight: Approximately 120 g

As for the movement, it is changed from Cal.324 SC to Cal.26-330 SC in 2019.

Although the exact change time is not known, according to the information on the official website of Patek Philippe, the movement specification of the Nautilus 5711 series watch is currently Cal.26-330SC.

The difference between Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-001 and 5711/1A-010 is the “bracelet”.

The big difference between Nautilus 5711/1A-001 and 5711/1A-010 is the series connection parts of the bracelet. Around 2010, Patek Philippe changed the bracelet connection part from the screw-type to the needle type. They also changed the number of the model. Apart from this, there are no other differences between the two watches. In addition, as just mentioned, among the current 5711/1A-010, individuals are carrying Cal.26-330SC. As everyone knows, the Nautilus series watches are rare, and it is hard to find them even in the import market.

However, with the stop production of Nautilus 5711/1A, rumors that Patek Philippe may launch a successor model are rampant. If a new model replacing 5711/1A launches in the future, most likely, it will be equipped with the Cal. 26-330 SC movement and begin to circulate on the market. Let us wait and see what Patek Philippe will release in April!

What kind of watch is Patek Philippe Nautilus Large 5711/1A-011?

Next, I want to introduce is the 5711/1A-011 which was released in 2012 and has a white dial. Except for the color of the dial, all specifications are exactly the same as 5711/1A-010. The parts of the bracelet also use steel needles.

◆ Production period: 2012 ~ 2020
◆ Diameter: 40 mm
◆ Thickness: Approximately 8.3 mm
◆ Material: Stainless Steel (SS)
◆ Glass: Sapphire crystal glass, Sapphire glass back case
◆ Waterproof: 120 meters
◆ Dial: White
◆ Weight: Approximately 120 g
◆ Bracelet connection parts: Needle (Spring)
◆ Automatic movement: Cal. 324 SC (Frequency 28,800 hourly)

This 5711/1A-011 will stop production in 2020, one step earlier than the blue dial.

Although compared with the blue dial, its market fluctuations are slower. Since it was the first to be discontinued in January 2020, and the blue model will also stop in 2021, various factors have led to the price of this white dial rising.

Nautilus 5711/1A Second-hand Price

Whether it is the new or old blue dial or the white dial, it is becoming more and more difficult to find them in the market, so this watch is listed on the “to-buy list” of many watch shops. Among the industry players, it even triggered a Nautilus battle.

In the future, the price of this watch may change due to the emergence of new watches or changes in social conditions. Therefore, Patek Philippe’s brand trends and the Nautilus market will still be one of the focuses that watch fans must pay attention to in 2021.

Summary

So far, this article has introduced the difference between Nautilus 5711/1A-001 and 5711/1A-010, and the comparison with 5711/1A-011.

In summary, 5711/1A-001 is a stainless steel three-hand display Nautilus series watch manufactured from 2006 to 2010. It is the same model as the 5711/1A-010 manufactured between 2010 and 2020. The big difference between the two is the way of connecting the bracelet is screw or needle.

And 5711/1A-011 is the white dial version of Nautilus that was launched later.

As long as the news of the stop production is reported, most market conditions will show a rapid upward trend, and the purchase price will also rise accordingly. I believe that readers have also understood this point.

In addition, as mentioned in the article, Patek Philippe is scheduled to publish news of the new work in April 2021. At that time, this site will continue to update relevant information, so stay tuned!
