This timepiece is the most prized and desired model that is only available to a handful of the world’s most powerful people. Patek Philippe and Tiffany created only 170 pieces to commemorate their working relationship.
The first piece from this unique collection was sold for a startling $6.5 million in less than 15 minutes at an auction in New York in December 2021 to raise money for charity. The remaining 169 pieces from this collection sold for $52,635 each.
And regardless of how affluent you are, you may not be able to get your hands on one due to the strong demand the watch continues to generate.
Patek Philippe announced it was discontinuing the beloved 5711 Nautilus series – the most treasured model. This series is going out with a bang as it has increased the demand for this watch.
We took it upon ourselves to keep track of everyone seen wearing the most anticipated watch since its release in 2021. You can come back for additional information as we continue to update this article.
The watch’s dial Tiffany Blue color made it immediately recognizable on the business mogul’s wrist because of its distinctive shade and vibrancy, which is a refreshing break from Patek’s usual conservative approach.
Given that Jay-Z and Beyonce are Tiffany ambassadors and the business magnate is a watch collector, this is not surprising. Why wouldn’t the ‘G.O.A.T’ have one of the most hype watches on his wrist?
James wore his Patek x Tiffany Blue the week he became the NBA‘s all-time leading scorer and subsequently at the Superbowl 2022 in Los Angeles. He also shared a sneak peek of his timepiece on his Instagram story.
Joining the elite list is Oscar winner Leonard DiCaprio who sported his limited edition piece at the NFC Championship Game for all to see. He also wore the Tiffany Blue timepiece at the Superbowl game.
Even though he wore casual attire, his flex was on his wrist. This surprised watch enthusiasts who said DiCaprio is
not much of a watch guy.
Lebron James is not the only basketball player with a Tiffany Blue on his wrist. Let’s welcome the newest member of the exclusive Tiffany & Co. club basketball superstar James Harden of the Philadelphia 76ers.
Harden wore his extremely rare Nautilus 5711 at an event attended by his close friend, the rapper – Lil Baby. He also has a growing and impressive watch collection.
Anthony “The Blue Wiggle” Field was seen publicly wearing his Patek Philippe Tiffany Blue watch on an Instagram post
The best part was that it was there to complement his usual on-screen attire when playing the didgeridoo.
“The Blue Wiggle” began in Australia and quickly became a children’s television sensation. Over the years, the line-up has changed several times, but Anthony has remained a constant. He’s also a watch collector, as it turns out.
A young watch collector, Zach Lu, is the lucky owner of the $6.5 million Tiffany Blue timepiece. Despite being unsuccessful during his initial efforts to purchase the watch at the auction, the coveted timepiece is now in his possession.
The sequence of events that led to Lu landing the watch is interesting since he was outbid at the auction by an anonymous New Yorker bidder.
Six weeks after the auction, the winning bidder was unable to complete the transaction. Lu was contacted and allowed to purchase the watch, which he accepted and the rest is history. The 31-year-old has been buying Patek Philippe from Geneva from age 15.
The mind-boggling record for reference 5711 is approximately 100 times its retail price. The partnership between the two long-standing partners and friends created one of the most sought-after watches in recent times.
