Patek Philippe's reference 5800 is the little sibling to the iconic 5711 Nautilus, sitting at a versatile 38mm. Its predecessor, the 3800, was discontinued just after the beginning of the millennium. This reference was produced for only one year, making it a genuinely rare variant of the line.

Like the original, the 5800 features the monobloc case construction with the now-iconic 'ears' on either side. The finishing on the case is impressive, with both brushed and polished surfaces creating an attractive visual contrast.

This watch is in good condition, with an even layer of scratches and marks on the case and bracelet. There is a small scratch on the winding rotor in the movement.

Comes in original box with documents. Service papers included.

PATEK PHILIPPE

To many, Patek Philippe is the epitome of the high-end watchmaker. Throughout its nearly two centuries' of existence, it has weathered everything from the World Wars to the Quartz Crisis of the 1980s. Even today, it's widely acknowledged to be amongst the most successful and prestigious watchmakers, with its creations gracing wrists of everyone from bankers and politicians to rappers and actors.

Patek Philippe began its life as Patek, Czapek & Cie. in 1839 and made its name by making some of the most accurate watch movements. By the turn of the century, Patek was venturing into the realm of high complications, including split-seconds chronographs, perpetual calendars, and minute repeaters. The latter made it into wristwatch-form in 1924 as a piece unique for Ralph Teetor, the inventor of the cruise control function.

In 1932, the company ownership changed hands to the Stern family, who still run Patek Philippe. In that same year, the Calatrava wristwatch was introduced. By the 1970s, seeing the damage which the Quartz Crisis had done to the industry, Patek Philippe decided to introduce a bold new steel watch. Thus, the Nautilus was born.

Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength, solidifying its reputation as one of the finest Swiss watchmakers. From the highly-desirable stainless steel sports watches, to the famed high complications, down to the 'humble' Calatrava, Patek Philippe proves that it can do it all.
