The family-run manufactory Patek Philippe has released its famous Nautilus in the signature shade of Tiffany Blue. The 170 limited edition pieces with double logo on the dial symbolize 170 years of partnership between the two companies.

Tiffany & Co History

In 1851, the American brand Tiffany & Co became the first official retailer of Patek Philippe watches in the United States. At that time, both firms were still very young: Tiffany & Co was founded in 1837, Patek Philippe was born two years later. 

The flagship store of the Swiss watchmaker on rue du Rhone, a stone's throw from Lake Geneva, is located in the same historic building that once occupied Tiffany & Co. In the interiors that Patek Philippe has occupied since 1853, there are still two antique Tiffany safes, which the American jewelry company sold to watchmakers when it left Geneva.

170th Anniversary

Patek Philippe CEO's Statement

“This is my little present for LVMH on the occasion of the acquisition of Tiffany,” Patek Philippe CEO Thierry Stern said in an interview . - I have to choose something exceptional. And this is the last release of the Nautilus watch. "

Earlier this year, Stern announced that the steel Nautilus with a blue dial (Ref. 5711), the most sought-after wristwatch on the market, would be discontinued. The watch with three hands, launched in 2006, collected ten-year waiting lists, even though it cost up to $ 25-30 thousand. 

Patek Philippe presented a new "nau" at Watches & Wonders with an olive dial  - and a different reference number. Therefore, Nautilus in Tiffany Blue (Ref 5711 / 1A-018) really becomes a farewell chord.
