Surprising avid watch collectors, connoisseurs, and fans alike, Patek Philippe announced that Ref. 5711 was being retired back in January 2021. Rumored to have a waitlist of ten years long, the collector's favorite is now only available in the second-hand market, making the current lot one of the most sought-after timepieces from the brand.
The Ref. 5711 first appeared in 2006, and in recent years — through a combination of prestige and scarcity — it joined the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding with a blue dial and three nonvintage Rolexes (the Cosmograph Daytona, the “Pepsi” GMT Master II and the Submariner) at the center of a global obsession with trophy steel watches.
