The second Nautilus to hit the HODINKEE Shop is noticeably different from the first, despite retaining the exact same reference number. Yes, this is a replica reference 5711/1A-010, the one you love and know. After passing the last best UK sale fake Patek Philippe Nautilus on to a new owner, we knew the second one had to be special and this one is just that.
On every AAA perfect replica Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin issued for a ref. 5711/1A-010, the dial is described as “Noir Trame 12 Index GRM SLM C3.” With some Patek-specific identifiers there at the end, that description translates to “Black Welt” – welt describing that legendary 1:1 excellent fake Patek Philippe Nautilus row texture and, well, black being the color of the dial. Noir can also be translated as dark. Nevertheless, this is an official Patek detail that gets lost in the fanfare with the 5711. Only does it reveal itself when an example like this one pops up. Most high-quality fake Patek Philippe Nautilus “blue” dials fall somewhere between slate and deep ocean blue, but the example we have here leans heavily towards the slate end of that spectrum.
The look in person is really something else and is stunning on the wrist. Our photo team did the best they could to show the watches in natural light where the dial appears a bit more on the slate grey side. The AAA cheap fake watches online, engulfed by that streak of sunlight above, look downright gorgeous. The studio photograph, under artificial light, calls attention to the bluer side of this particular dial.
This “slate-dialed” fake Patek Philippe Nautilus UK is full set – box, papers, hang tag, the works. As I said in the last 5711 write-up, this watch is probably not for everyone that reads this post, but if you’re looking for a 5711 that’s ready to ship today and guaranteed authentic, then here you have it.
