PHOTOS: The New Patek Philippe Nautilus With A White Dial

This is a guest post from HODINKEE, a watch blog that’s sharing some highlights from Basel World 2012, the world’s largest watch show, with us.

The modern Patek Philippe “Jumbo”, reference 5711/A is indeed one of those classic watches that you simply can’t argue with.  It is the kind of watch that everyone in the watch world has respect for, and no matter the occasion, the Nautilus in steel just looks good.

Two days ago at Basel World 2012, Patek Philippe introduced the same 5711/A that we love so much, but this time with a crystal clear white dial.  It, honestly, changes the look of the Nautilus completely, and makes it entirely more sporty than that with the blue/grey dial. 

With this Nautilus you also have black oxidized hands and markers, and the colour of the luminova has been changed from green to white.  The standard Nautilus 5711 with blue/grey dial will, of course, remain in production, and both will retail for $26,700.

For you Patek nerds out there, the official reference number of the white dial Nautilus will be: 5711/A/011
