The first 170th-anniversary double signed Patek Philippe Tiffany & Co. 5711/1A-018 Nautilus is being offered to the public by Phillips.

Just two days after the unveiling of the Tiffany Blue Dial Nautilus, this is the very first – and only timepiece currently available of the reference. Limited to 170 pieces, the remaining 169 will be available at Tiffany flagships following this auction.

Aurel Bacs, Senior Consultant, Bacs & Russo, comments:

Since my teenage years and earliest days as a watch lover, I grew up seeing the Nautilus with its subtle and timeless design and subdued dial colors such as deep blue and champagne, later white and most recently olive green. I remember my jaw dropping when I was first shown the picture of this last and final iteration of the 5711 and I couldn’t believe my eyes. The introduction of a bold, pastel color paired with the Tiffany & Co. logo was unimaginable to me. Not only is this an absolute first for a Nautilus, but also for any Patek Philippe wristwatch. It’s as revolutionary and groundbreaking as when the Pop Art of Warhol and Lichtenstein wrote a new chapter for the visual arts, or when Elvis Presley created an all-new musical genre. This is a similar ‘rock and roll’ moment for Patek Philippe, and I’m certain the community will appreciate the Tiffany Blue Nautilus as much as I do.

The lot is set to go live on December 11 where there is no reserve, and the estimate is in “excess of $50,000 USD.” Proceeds from this sale will benefit The Nature Conservancy.
