Spotted Bernard Arnault, Owner of LVMH, With a Unique Tiffany-Blue UK Replica Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual 5740

Except if you’ve been living in a cave for the past 2 months, the whole buzz surrounding the luxury fake Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 Tiffany-Blue dial made for the 170th anniversary of the NYC-based jeweller and watch retailer should be something quite familiar to you – and maybe, you’re also rather bored with this story now.

But, today, it’s basically the mother of all Tiffany-Blue Patek Philippe Nautilus replica watches online that has been spotted out in the wild (understand Instagram). Yes, just like that, casually playing chess, Bernard Arnault, owner of LVMH and now owner of Tiffany, has been spotted wearing something very, very unusual; a unique Tiffany-Blue uk perfect fake Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual 5740. Now the $6.5 million 5711 sold by Phillips seems almost like a standard watch…

Spotted on the Instagram account of Frédéric Arnault, son of Bernard Arnault and CEO of TAG Heuer (also owned by LVMH), father and son were casually spending an afternoon playing chess, while on the wrist of the usually very discreet and low-key Bernard Arnault was something rather intriguing… a Tiffany-blue dial could easily be seen, and so was the emblematic shape of the best 1:1 replica Patek Philippe Nautilus. Well, what a surprise, the owner of LVMH, itself the company that owns Tiffany, secured one of the 170 pieces for himself… Fair enough.

Well, looking at the second image on the post by Frédéric, the story changed quite drastically. Sure, the watch in question is a high quality replica Patek Philippe Nautilus. Sure, it is equipped with a Tiffany-Blue dial. But it’s not a 5711. Instead, what you’re looking at is a unique Tiffany-Blue super clone Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual Calendar 5740 – a watch that is usually equipped with this mid-blue dial and encased in white gold.

No idea if Arnault’s unique Tiffany-Blue Nautilus 5740 is made of white gold or stainless steel, but clearly we’re now looking at what Patek enthusiasts could name the ultimate collector’s Patek Philippe Nautilus replica for sale. Oh well, this might pleasant sometimes to be one of the richest men on Earth, to own some rather cool luxury brands and to be on good terms with the Sterns.

The Rose Gold Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1R Replica Online UK — Now Discontinued

We’ve previously discussed the discontinuation of other luxury fake Patek Philippe 5711 models, as well as the hype that ensued, leading to some unbelievable auction prices. This is something which took place upon the announcement last year. However, the time has come, as 2022 was the deadline set for these models to be officially discontinued. And though we don’t have a specific date, it certainly won’t take long for this to come into effect.

In the early days of December of last year, it was reported that yet another best 1:1 replica Patek Philippe 5711 model would be discontinued. I’m talking, of course, about the 5711/1R. RJ covered this gorgeous rose gold Nautilus back in 2015, and now its production comes to an end. This, of course, means that we must say farewell to more than just the stainless steel Patek Philippe Nautilus fake watches online UK.

The Fake Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1R
So, what makes this such a tragic departure from AAA replica Patek Philippe’s catalog? If the pictures, with their thousand-word value, haven’t spoken to you already, allow me to do so for them. The 5711/1R was a watch that remained somewhat low-key in times of stainless steel supremacy. But looking at it today, nearly seven years after its release, it’s a wonder that it didn’t take up more time in the spotlight.

It’s cheap fake Patek Philippe giving the 5711 the Midas touch, replacing steel with gold, and blue with golden brown. The appealing form-factor of Genta’s design remains, yet everything that is functional and refined becomes luxurious and opulent. This is certainly not an everyday watch (not that the stainless steel super clone Patek Philippe Nautilus is either). Rather, it’s a laser-show-meets-fireworks-display for the wrist, that shines bright, turning heads wherever it appears.

It’s not every watch that looks better in gilded armor — there are some that become downright kitsch and over-the-top. The Patek Philippe Nautilus replica for sale, however, truly shines in rose gold, and the combination with the brown dial is one of the best executed out there. Would I love to see a green dial in the pink gold case? Absolutely. And who knows, perhaps this will be the successor someday?

If you’re a fan of the brown, however, you may be too late to make a move. Though the Wempe website shows this model priced at just over €50K, Chrono24 tells very a different story. In 2021, it nearly doubled in price, and that trend doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Though the hype may favor steel, this precious-metal Nautilus is certainly not a comparative bargain like gold Rolex super clone watches might be.

Final Thoughts
Though we already knew that the Nautilus would be discontinued gradually, with a number of releases leading up to the end of production, it is starting to feel pretty final. Will Swiss movement fake Patek Philippe surprise us with more special 5711 watches in 2022? Not if what the brand promised is true. But you never know. For now, we’ll have to simply stay tuned and watch those Chrono24 charts rise, as we hope to see this icon come back sometime in the future. But what will that look like? Will it be a drastic and divisive revamp of the classic? Or will Patek Philippe replica Paypal follow the Omega approach to the new Speedmaster, adding only a number of subtle changes and improvements? While somewhat divisive, at least small improvements like those seem to be welcomed by most enthusiasts. But for now, we can only speculate and hope for the best.
