Patek Philippe Nautilus with a very special olive green Tiffany stamped dial

The American singer John Mayer is wearing a 40,5mm stainless steel Patek Philippe Nautilus with a very special olive green Tiffany stamped dial.

The Nautilus is the most coveted steel luxury sports watch today, with a reported average waiting time of 8 years. The iconic design is from the shape of the porthole of a transatlantic liner, and the ‘ears’ of the watch are inspired by the oversized hinges of the watertight windows.

About The Watch

Not long ago, Patek introduced a brand-new stainless steel model featuring an olive green sunburst dial, a color never previously seen in the Nautilus series. This came following the revelation that the stainless steel Patek Philippe Nautilus version 5711/1A in blue dial would no longer be produced after 2021.

Featuring the Patek Philippe Nautilus new model is the exquisite shade highlighted with a subtle sunburst finish that blends with the light reflected from the steel casing. Thus, adding a modern touch to the design. This also ensures readability all day and night, creating a beautiful contrast with the white gold hands and hour markers.

With a thickness of only 8.3mm, this watch is exceptionally comfortable. The thin silhouette is assisted by a 44mm lug-to-lug measurement and lugs that slope down to the integrated bracelet. The bracelet has brushed links with polished centers. It has a butterfly clasp and a branded locking fold-over.

Instead of the gradient found on the blue dial, the olive-green Tifanny stamped dial has a sunburst design that allows light to play a little differently on this dial. Depending on the brightness, the dial can seem grey or even black. The garage door horizontal adornment provides depth to the piece and enhances the light effects.

Aside from the color change, the dial is unaltered, except for a date frame; the formerly plain date window now has a white gold frame. The white gold frame complements the attached baton indices and hands, which all have luminous material for low-light visibility. Small dots form a minute track along the edge for a more precise setup and time telling.

The 212-part Patek Philippe caliber 26-330 S C powers the Patek Philippe 5711/1A-014. This in-house movement, visible via a sapphire crystal caseback, was released in 2019 as a replacement for the caliber 324. Including a hacker seconds option was the only significant modification in terms of functionality. Nevertheless, significant improvements were made to the gears. A LIGA-etched nickel-phosphorous ring smoothly sweeps the seconds’ indicator with large notched blades with an anti-backlash race. The 30-jewel movement runs for 45 hours on a whole wind and strikes at 4hz (28,800 vph).

The finish is exquisite, as you would anticipate, even on this relatively straightforward movement. The bridges, including anglage and Côtes de Genève, and the main plate are embellished with perlage. The Côtes de Genève and perlage, with ribbing along the external edge and an etched Patek Philippe emblem, are all present on the solid 21k gold rotor. Furthermore, the Patek Philippe seal ensures the movements’ precision to -3/+2 seconds each day, in addition to the stunning hand-finish.
