When Swiss Patek Philippe Replica launched the Nautilus back in 1976 with the 3700/1A, its 42mm wide case quickly earned it its “Jumbo” nickname. Now, some four decades later, Patek had to one-up those figures and launch the 5711/1P in a 44.05 millimeter-wide, all-platinum case.
The large-seeming 44.05mm diameter is the case measured at 9 to 3 o’clock, including the crown. The measurement from 10 to 4 o’clock, which excludes the crown protectors and the the corresponding “ear” on the left of the case, on the other hand, is only 40mm and lug-to-lug the Cheap Patek Philippe Replica 40th Anniversary 5711/1P is also a very wearable 44 millimeters. This is how a 44mm case can actually not wear so big.
In addition to the platinum case and bracelet, the baton-style hour and minute hands in 18k white gold and some large, baguette-cut hour indices on the dial add that extra bit of glamour to the blue “garage door” dial of the Patek Philippe Nautilus 40th Anniversary 5711/1P. The Patek Philippe Replica Watches dial is PVD blue-treated 18k yellow gold, and the “40” above the “1976-2016” is a little less prominent and disruptive than on the 5976/1G chronograph. Blue has always looked good for the Nautilus.
The movement inside is the Patek Philippe Copy Watches automatic 324 SC which has powered a host of Nautilus and other watches. It features the time with central seconds and the date, here at 3 o’clock on a white date wheel, along with other standard Patek fare such as a Gyromax balance wheel, Spiromax hairspring and, of course, the Patek Philippe Seal.

Given the low-profile presence of the Cheap Patek Philippe Nautilus Replica on the wrist, however, it has never been my cup of tea. I tend to like slightly more assertive designs a bit more, and the side flanks of the Nautilus never really grew on me. With that said, I was very impressed with my last hands-on experience with a 5711-style Nautilus, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1P, the 20th anniversary solid platinum edition with diamond hour markers.
What was Patek Philippe aiming to achieve with the Nautilus? When it was introduced in 1976, it was supposed to be a maritime lifestyle luxury watch for wealthy men and their family members who spent time boating or living by the sea. Genta pulled in design cues such as boat portholes for the design of the Patek Philippe Fake Watches Online bezel and flanks, and the horizontal lines on the dial are meant to resemble teak wood boat decks. Not only was the starkly contrasting brushed and polished finishing on the case common practice for other watches produced at the time, but it was also evocative of the metal hardware of a yacht deck.
The Patek Philippe Nautilus is an excellent example of a men’s bracelet jewelry that just so happens to have a watch attached to it. The steel construction of the case and bracelet prevents it from being overly pretentious as well. Not only does a very respected watchmaker give the design the finishing and construction it deserves, but it also equips the watch with the finest non-complicated mechanical movements. Unlike Rolex, the Patek Philippe Replica For Sale movement isn’t hidden behind a solid caseback.
The movement is a fine example of what you should look for in a simple yet high-end sports watch. What makes the caliber 324 S C impressive beyond its high-level of finishing is its thin profile. The movement is just 3.3mm thick, and in all, the Nautilus maintains a water resistance of 120m despite being just 8.3mm thick. The automatic rotor is in solid 21k gold, which actually means it weighs enough to keep the winding efficiency high. The luxury replica watches movement operates at 4Hz with 45 hours of power reserve, and it also features Patek Philippe’s in-house Gyromax balance wheel and Spiromox balance spring.
Patek Philippe announced that the Chronograph Annual Calendar 5960 Swiss Replica watch would be newly available in steel, in a move that makes sense for a brand that wants to appeal to a younger customer base in an already self-selective buyer’s market. Not particularly for pricing concerns, but precious metals make it pretty much impossible for a watch to feel “sporty” in any way, let alone such a complicated watch like the 5960. In 2017, they released this, the Patek Philippe 5960/1A Annual Calendar Chronograph watch with a black dial.
The 40.5mm wide and 13.5mm thick polished stainless steel case houses the deep ebony black opaline dial that is fortunately legible as well as attractive. The applied white gold hour markers, red seconds and chronograph hands, and white aspects of the monocounter at 6 o’clock keep the dial from being overwhelming considering how much is going on with the Cheap Patek Philippe 5960/1A Replica.
Things are flipped around from the silver dialed model, with the Swiss Patek Philippe Replica date/day/month apertures, hour markers, and outer ring of the monopusher contrasting against the black dial and looking a lot more harmonious. Personally, I felt the black framing of the date/day/month apertures on the previous model looked too stark. I think the best way I can put it is that they almost felt like black eyes on the face of the dial, though that might sound a little harsher than I intend.
These Patek Philippe Replica Watches apertures look more like a pair of glasses that look like a natural fit and attractively frame one’s face. The power reserve indicator right at 12 o’clock still bothers me and just looks awkward, though the functional purpose of the complication is hard to deny. And of course, the white outer ring of the monocounter indicates the chronograph hours, with the inner rings indicating the chronograph minutes.
