The 5711/1A, as discussed in the previous lot, features a three part case construction with sapphire display back to reveal the caliber 324 SC. With center seconds, the 5711/1A immediately differentiates itself from its inspiration, the 3700/1A. Furthermore, the clasp construction of the 5711/1A is a double folding clasp as opposed to the single fold of the reference 3700/1.
This example features the -011 dial code representing a silvered white dial (argente trame) with 12 black indexes.
Proportionate to the black dial version, far fewer examples of the 5711/1A have been made with the white dial. The Tiffany & Co. signature further differentiates this watch in terms of rarity and desirability as it is estimated that only a small number of all 5711/1A examples bear this important retail signature. To the best of our knowledge the present watch has never before been offered in public.
