When the Nautilus was already part of the Swiss 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.
On top of that, 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 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.
Side by side with the predecessor Patek Philippe References 5711 and 5800 Replica, the contrasting dimensions are especially obvious. 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 5811 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 first copy watches 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 5811/1G 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.
The new Nautilus is powered by the established 26-330 S C calibre, which already powered the last models of the 5711 from 2019, and which is also installed in the Aquanaut 5167 and the new Calatrava 5226. 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 Patek Philippe replica vs real 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.
It may be that some in the watch world had hoped for a bigger and more radical leap from Patek Philippe. But this is exactly what is avoided in the manufacture, with its great tradition. Legends are not created in a day; they are to be carefully nurtured. Ultimately, then, the 5811 is a timepiece that has been enhanced in many respects, and tastefully adapted to suit the spirit of the times.
In the newly Patek Philippe 1:1 Replica Watches 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 5712 was previously available exclusively with leather straps, making them probably the most discreet Nautilus models of all.
The flyback chronograph is equipped with a date at twelve o’clock, a central seconds counter, a sixty-minute counter at six o’clock, as well as a travel time function, with which a second time zone can be easily set using the pushers on the left side of the case. The CH 28-520 C FUS calibre powering the Quality Replica Watches obviously demands more space than the classic three-hand Nautilus, and the case height of 12.53 mm in particular gives it a very different presence.
It’s fascinating to see the new Reference 5811 next to the new 5990. Both are Patek Philippe Nautilus 1:1 Replica Watches, 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.
