The Tiffany Patek 5711
What’s better than a luxury watch? A highly exclusive, hard-to-get, no longer in- production luxury watch. It’s not just the high price point that elicits “ooh-ah” responses from watch connoisseurs and admirers alike. It’s the emotional significance behind luxury wristwatches that make heritage brands like Patek Philippe so desirable.
They evoke attractive feelings of achievement and value to the wearer – like the Patek 5711 Tiffany Dial.
If you’ve never heard of this particular Patek Philippe model, that’s okay. The exclusivity of this watch is so high that unless you’re a seasoned watch connoisseur you may not know to dream about it. In the watch world, the Patek 5711 Tiffany Dial is one of the most sought-after luxury watches in the collector’s world. For starters, Nautilus watches from Patek Philippe are extremely valuable. But one with a Tiffany dial? It’s like, hello, goldmine, mother-lode, cash-cow, golden-goose. You name it.
Why? The signature Tiffany & Co. mark on the Patek Philippe Nautilus Dial applauds one of the most noteworthy luxury brand partnerships dating back to the 1850s. This partnership resulted in a unique deal that took place between the founders Antoine Norbert de Patek and Charles Tiffany themselves. The discreet agreement was to offer select Patek watches in Tiffany & Co. boutiques, and these watches contain a unique stamp to differentiate them from other Patek Philippe watches.
The Exclusivity of the Patek Philippe Tiffany Stamp
Why exactly is the Tiffany Patek 5711 watch so valuable? Similar to the way Birkin bags are made in limited quantities with waitlists stretching out for years, the Patek 5711 Nautilus Blue Dial (without the Tiffany stamp) had a waitlist of almost ten years before it was discontinued! That means the Patek 5711 model alone is nearly impossible to get your hands on the moment you decide you want one. Side note: Although the blue dial is discontinued, Patek Philippe also made a 5711 Nautilus watch but with a green dial.
Even more exclusive than the base model? You guessed it. The Patek 5711 Tiffany Dial. Our expert watch authenticator, Logan Wallace, explains “it’s estimated that Tiffany & Co. only receives two to three of the 5711 models per year. And this model is now discontinued.” This rare and hard-to-find watch was offered to VIP Tiffany & Co. clients only.
There are VIP Tiffany & Co. clients? Yes. And basically, when Tiffany boutiques received a Patek watch, they were almost certain which clients were the interested parties in purchasing the Tiffany dial, as explained here. Ultimately, as a potential buyer, receiving intel on this watch model’s availability directly from the boutique meant inner circle status, and being offered one only was the case if you had large sums of prior purchase history with Tiffany & Co.
So this watch is quite special. If you thought it was hard enough to get a Patek 5711 model, it’s even harder to get your hands on a Patek 5711 Tiffany Dial. This watch is basically fit for royalty and is the ultimate status symbol. There’s nothing more alluring to me about rare pieces than knowing you can’t really find them anywhere other than places like FASHIONPHILE.
Eventually, even the most unique pieces find their way to us. That’s the beauty of buying and selling with FASHIONPHILE. We procure incredibly valuable pieces from all over the world that are nearly impossible to get directly from boutiques now, either because they’re sold out or made in limited quantities.
The Unique Features of the Patek Nautilus 5711 Tiffany Watch
The Patek 5711 Tiffany Dial embodies so many elevated features. This particular watch we procured comes with the same box that the watch was shipped to the boutique in, along with the official Patek Philippe box, pouch, and papers. The model is a 40mm watch crafted in 316L grade stainless steel featuring a sunburst blue dial, luminous white hour markers, sapphire crystals, a transparent case back, and an automatic movement.
Although now discontinued, a new limited edition 5711 featuring the iconic Tiffany Blue dial has been released, and we’re smitten. This is the final Patek & Tiffany Nautilus 5711 watch ever to be made. Leonardo DiCaprio, Jay-Z, and LeBron James have been spotted out wearing this style. And if we ever do get it in, you will hear from us.
