The Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5711/1A-010 is no more. After a 15-year-long run (with a waitlist to match), the beloved blue-dial luxury sports watch will be leaving the lineup.

Retailing for approximately $30,000 USD, the past five years have seen the Gérald Genta-designed watch’s secondary price skyrocket roughly three times retail. Considered one of the best designs from the Holy Trinity of watches, this news of the Nautilus is sure to push secondary prices to even higher numbers. For those seeking an alternative, do keep in mind that the rose gold version (ref. 5711/1R-001) is still available, and with a retail price tag of $55,000 USD, this might be the real winner.

Either way, we are excited to see what will be replacing the classic 5711/1A-010 in the coming year.
