Introducing: The Patek Philippe Ref. 5740 Nautilus Perpetual Calendar –

Snappy Take

For the absolute first time, Patek Philippe has delivered a Nautilus interminable schedule. The reference 5740G is a strong white gold Nautilus estimating 40mm across with a conspicuous QP design on the dial that shows the month, day, date, jump year, moonphase, and 24-hour cycle (a la watches like the 3940 et al). While the complication is new, this watch is a Nautilus totally – we have the exemplary blue dial with the even ribbing, radiant applied markers and hands, and the blend of brushed and cleaned completes that give the watch so much dynamism. 

Beginning Thoughts

I mean…it’s sort of hard not to get amped up for this one. Without a doubt, it’s non-conventional, yet Patek has taken two incredible things – the Nautilus and the Caliber 240 Q and set up them. You have quite possibly the most exemplary plans ever meeting a quintessential PP development. The way that the watch is 40mm in breadth and simply 8.32mm thick is marvelous (I’m certain the allurement was there to go for something somewhat bigger) and I’m certain it wears too well on the wrist. For some specific circumstance, the most recent Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar is 9.5mm thick and the crazy RD#2 is 6.3mm thick, so we’re looking at something pretty smooth here. Besides, considering the years-long shortlist for the reference 5711 (the essential time-and-date Nautilus), I’m speculating that getting your hands on this watch will be difficult.
