It is said you die twice: one time when you stop breathing and a second time when somebody says your name for the last time. When it comes to the 5711 it has been quite a few more times than that now, and nobody seems to be ready to stop saying its name for the last time.
The 5711 which had recently been reported as being discontinued, makes a reappearance in Patek’s catalogue. In a brand new olive-green color e that is new to the Nautilus collection. Its color reminds me a little of the ‘grenade’ dial Aquanaut. I personally like this color a lot and can see other brands follow trend shortly after. It gives the overall watch a more utilitarian vibe, shaving a hint of that apparent luxury away. Whether that is good or bad is a matter of taste of course.
Despite Stern’s previous comments it appears that this 5711 is in fact ‘available’ at your local Patek dealer. It is not an edition that is exclusively available to a select few boutiques, which was something Stern had hinted at when the blue dial 5711 got axed from the catalogue earlier this year. Perhaps this means that we will in fact still see a return of the blue dial as well, with that particular dial reserved to a handful of boutiques. Only time will tell.
This new 5711 is said to have a production run that will be limited to 2021 only.
- Self-winding mechanical movement.
- CaliberCaliber The caliber ('movement') is the heart and engine of a watch. It consists of a number of interconnected components that work together. Energy is transmitted through the gear train, to the escapement mechanism. The escapement mechanism releases this energy in a controlled manner. This drives the gear train, which ultimately rotates the hands of the watch and keeps time.

- Power reserveRéserve de marche Also known as Power Reserve. A watch's power reserve refers to the amount of time a mechanical watch can run without being wound. The power reserve of a mechanical watch can vary depending on the size of the mainspring, the efficiency of the gear train, and the rate at which the mainspring releases energy. If a watch has a Power Reserve 'complication' it simply means that the status of the power reserve can be seen on the watch itself (either on the dial or movement side of the watch).

- Balance springHairspring The hairspring is a thin spring in a mechanical watch movement that is connected to the balance wheel. The balance wheel oscillates back and forth at a consistent rate, and the hairspring helps regulate these oscillations. The hairspring works by applying a restoring force to the balance wheel, which helps to keep the balance wheel oscillating at a consistent rate. The hairspring is also known as a balance spring.
