Perhaps I changed a bit during the last few years or at least my taste did, but I am warming up to Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1R gold Replica Watches. Not only did I think they were often too gaudy, tacky or whatever label you want to use, I also was of the opinion that certain watches should be in stainless steel only. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus are perfect examples of that thought.
However, like I wrote, I am warming up to gold watches and even gold versions of these classic stainless steel luxury sports watches. Not how Gerald Genta meant them to be perhaps, but as long as it is done with the utmost respect to the original design, I can be fine with it. However, I am still a bit of a purist and am torn between the real deal in steal or the warm colour of gold. Since it is a watch that shouldn’t be worn during sports anyway in my opinion, gold can certainly be used for a watch like this.
The new Nautilus in gold is an amazing looking Cheap Patek Philippe Replica, even on a pale skin like mine I think I could get away with it. Where the stainless steel version – which I often tried – feels comfortably light, the gold version has a much bigger presence. The weight of the gold does not make you forget what’s on your wrist. Besides the weight aspect, the presence is also there because of the warm colour of gold. Due to the very recognizable type of finish on the case and bracelet, this watch will never look tacky or flashy in gold.
A gold Nautilus isn’t something new. Actually, the first Nautilus reference was also produced in gold in those late 1970s. Later Nautilus models were also available in gold, but never the reference 5711/1A. Patek Philippe decided to use rose gold for the case and bracelet and instead of the blue/green-ish dial in the stainless steel version; they’ve picked this warm chocolate brown colour for the dial. It gives the Patek Philippe Replica Watch a very classy look and makes you forget about the fact that a Nautilus should be a stainless steel watch only.
Actually, it made me wonder whether a gold Patek Philippe Replica Nautilus 5711/1R is something a purist can get away with. Besides the fact that there actually was an original 1970s 3700/1A in gold, you can debate whether the current 5711/1A isn’t already too far away from the original 3700/1A series for a purist. The see-through case back, the second hand and the fact that it isn’t a monocoq case anymore, already makes the 5711/1A a modern interpretation of the original 3700/1A.
