Lot Essay

Part of the most coveted sports wristwatches, the Patek Philippe reference 5980 was launched alongside the reference 5711. Offered in excellent overall condition with its certificate and origin from Salons Patek Philippe in Geneva, the present example is consigned by the original owner and has never been offered to the public before.

Rarely seen at auction in such a combination, this reference 5980 is offered with a magnificent white dial displaying sharp contrasts with deep black edges on the hands and applied hour markers. The timepiece further distinguishes itself from some predecessors through its black frame around the date window as well as plain space on the dial in order to feature the “Patek Philippe Geneve” script. Released with white dial around 2012, the watch features the PP seal to its movement and was discontinued with white dial around 2014.

Reference 5980
Making its debut in 2006, the Patek Philippe Nautilus reference 5980 was introduced on the occasion of the Basel Fair during the 30th anniversary of the iconic reference 3700/1 designed by Gerald Genta. As a vital complication of a sports watch, the reference is equipped with a chronograph function and the renowned "bull's eye" subsidiary dial. First seen on reference 5960, this design has captivated the heart of collectors by showcasing the hours in the inner part of the dial and minutes on the outer ring. Reference 5980 is fitted with Patek Philippe's entirely in-house made chronograph calibre 28-520 C.

The calibre 28-520 C was originally created for the reference 5960, Patek Philippe’s first self-winding chronograph with annual calendar, it was later adjusted to the reference 5980 without the date display.
