The watch king Patek Philippe is full of firepower in the second half of the year! Released 8 new watches at a time, including Nautilus 5811, with left crown, with rainbow circle, and the first stainless steel world time zone chronograph, etc. The number and topic of discussion are comparable to the W&W watch exhibition at the beginning of the year. More than ever. The rumored successor to the 5711 has indeed revealed the new model 5811, but it is made of white gold, and the price is high. In addition, the expected 25th anniversary of Aquanaut and 90th anniversary of Calatrava have been unsuccessful. However, there are still two months in 2022, with the current scattered rhythm of new watch releases of major brands, who knows!
The new model of 5811 is the first platinum material
Update Folding Buckle Style
PATEK Philippe 5811/1G-001 Watch information
The much-anticipated successor to the 5711 model, the new model 5811 was released in October 2022, and it was the first to come out in white gold with a classic blue finish. The diameter of the watch is slightly increased to 41 mm compared with the 5711. It adopts a blue-black gradient dial, is equipped with a 26-330 automatic winding movement, and adopts a two-piece case. After replacing the 3711, it returned for the first time to a two-piece case. According to collectors who have seen the actual watch from abroad, the color of the dial is bluer and darker than that of 5711. This is the special honor that can only be felt by powerful collectors when they get started.
In addition, the new model has a major focus for collectors, that is, the buckle is replaced by a new type of folding buckle that is easy to open and close, which can be unfolded by pressing the buttons on both sides. In addition, the length can be extended by 2~4 mm. Speaking of the most important details of the facelift; it was used in the Nautilus 57.4 million perpetual calendar and the Aquanaut before, and now it has been updated in response to the new model. However, as mentioned above, since the new 5811 is made of platinum and the price is high, the most entry-level model priced by Nautilus has fallen to 5712/1A. Whether it will have a subtle impact on the subsequent market conditions is also worth observing.

Under the halo of super popular styles such as 5711 and 5712, although the 5990/1A two-place time chronograph is more restrained, it is actually a low-key and popular model that is very popular among top collectors. Because it is equipped with two complicated functions, the price is of course relatively high. Tall, but the layout is symmetrical and the style is stable, which is very popular. The previous 5990/1A-001 is a charcoal black gradient dial, and the new 5990/1A-011 is a blue-black gradient dial. The tones are all dark, so the difference is not big at first glance; however, the subtle difference in this color matching, It is also a point of view for collectors to savor carefully.
