First Take: The Patek Philippe 5740 Nautilus Perpetual Calendar

Patek Philippe debuted lots of great watches today at Baselworld. But, of the highlights, the one that stands out the most is the first ever Nautilus to feature a perpetual calendar. Actually, it’s the first Nautilus to feature any of Patek’s “Grande Complications” – think tourbillon, minute repeater, and perpetual calendar.

In spite of the fact that it is packing the Caliber 240 Q perpetual calendar movement inside, this new Nautilus still manages to be one of the thinnest out there. In fact, at 8.42 mm thick, it’s just a hair taller than the time-and-date ref. 5711, which measures 8.3mm top to bottom and is the watch most people tend to think of when they hear the name “Nautilus.” What’s more, it’s also the thinnest current production watch from Patek to use the Caliber 240Q.

Here’s a look at what makes this watch so special.


Amintas Neto says:

It’s nice but the 5726 dial looks more balanced at first sight

Santiago Gorostiaga says:

Only 119 k??! I’ll take 3

Albin Hellstrom says:

Disappointed with Patek and Rolex this year. My expectations where higher.

Hassan Sarfraz says:

Surely the chronograph or moonphase/GMT nautilas is more attractive? This may be a horological achievement, but the lack of small seconds is quite annoying.

Cam M. says:

Hodinkee sends an absolutely massive team of folks to Basel and we get a 2 minute video on 1 watch for the end of day 1. How horribly disappointing…

Rafael says:

i really don’t get that bezel it’s just ugly. what shape is that anyway? a roundish octagon?

Abhinay Raikar says:

Title is wrong, it should be 5740

Monsieur Café says:

wrong title
