The premise of my review of the famed Swiss Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 "Blue" watch (reference 5711/1A-010) focuses on one simple question: "What makes this steel sports lifestyle watch, with all of its love handles, persistently in high demand?" To further illustrate my point, right before the publication of this review, Patek Philippe decided to raise the price of this watch by 20%. Though I've always held a great respect for the Patek Philippe Nautilus, I've never had a particular desire to own one.

Although the Swiss Patek Philippe Aquanaut has historically been considered an entry-level sports watch, sort of a Nautilus-junior if you will, it has really come into its own over the last few years. Whereas previously some may have bought it primarily because they wanted to own a Patek Philippe sports watch but couldn’t afford the more expensive Nautilus, now the Aquanaut is very much considered a desirable model in its own right.
