Overall Review

The watch company Patek Philippe has unveiled a commemoration timepiece. It draws inspiration from its highly valued Nautilus Ref 5711 piece to mark its 170 years of partnership with Tiffany & Co. Since Tiffany & Co. became the first authorized Patek Philippe dealer in the US in 1851, the two businesses initially joined together.

It is hard to overestimate the majesty and allure of the Nautilus, Patek Philippe’s most known timepiece. The revelation that it would be phased away was startling and puzzling in light of this.

The founder and Chief executive, Thierry Stern, admitted much in an interview with The New York Times. The 2021 green-dial version was precisely what he had promised would be the beloved brand’s final “lap of honor” before it was discontinued.

The unique watch features the renowned Tiffany Blue dials for aesthetic purposes. The timepiece is housed in a steel case and has the horizontal relief embossing, a Nautilus sign feature. It also features baton hour indicators as well as minute hands in darkened white gold, including luminescent finishing and functionalities. Furthermore, this timepiece has dual marking the two corporation names—”Tiffany & Co.” positioned at 6 o’clock and “Patek Philippe” at 12 o’clock on the dial.

The 26-330 S C self-winding caliber from Patek Philippe, which boasts an exceptional 45-hour power reserve and a 120-meter waterproof, powers the Nautilus 5711 Tiffany & Co. A deeper inspection of the movement’s internal workings is possible thanks to the transparent backcase. The watch also receives a complementing stainless-steel band from Patek Philippe, maintaining the original look.

The sapphire-crystal case back of the watch is also noteworthy since it is inscribed with the phrase “170th Anniversary 1851-2021 Tiffany & Co. – Patek Philippe.” This Nautilus essentially honors the 170-year unified goal and the historical connections that Patek Philippe and the United States share.

You can see 1851-2021, but if you look closely, you can see the initials L-V-M-H printed on the last digit. This is due to Tiffany’s recent acquisition by LVMH. This timepiece is intended to express appreciation for the luxury brand on the takeover.

It’s fair to say that this Tiffany & Co. model surprised the watch industry. Not only has the timepiece been discontinued, but it also deviates from the brand’s typical austere style. The Tiffany Blue color of the dial is well-known, and the contrast of the blackened hands and markers elevates it to special status. The Tiffany & Co. wordmark speaks to collectors who treasure the coveted, “co-signed” watch dials from earlier decades; Tiffany dials are some of the most well-known. A piece like this feels more organic and authentic due to the shared background of both the companies.
