Patek Philippe replica watches for sale is widely regarded as the world’s finest watch manufacturer, but ask a cohort of collectors, retailers, bloggers and auctioneers to come to a consensus on the best models the firm has introduced since 2000 and all hell breaks loose. While they may agree on the broad strokes that have propelled the historic Geneva watchmaker to the top of the watchmaking pyramid (family ownership, quality craftsmanship and a fierce commitment to safeguarding the brand’s legacy), they have vastly different ideas about what constitutes an iconic reference.
Replica Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5711/1A Watches
The original Nautilus ref. 3700 was stainless steel luxury AAA fake watches influenced by nautical motifs, designed by Gerald Genta in 1973 and introduced in 1976.
On the model’s 30th anniversary in 2006, Patek Philippe rolled out a new take on the Patek Philippe Nautilus copy watches wholesale, ref. 5711, a modern update lauded for its graceful synthesis of historic details and contemporary styling.
“Maintaining the classic beauty of the original, the modern ref. 5711/1A incorporated several innovations over the original including greater water resistance, better corrosion resistance thanks to the use of higher-grade steel, and improved comfort from a superior double-folding clasp,” says Paul Boutros, Americas’ head of cheap UK replica watches for Phillips.
In recent years, and especially during the pandemic, ref. 5711 became a watchmaking sensation, rewriting the rules of the secondary market. In 2021, Patek Philippe president Thierry Stern surprised the watch world by announcing that the brand would discontinue the reference, but not before releasing two blockbuster farewell editions, the olive green dial Nautilus, introduced in April of that year, and, most importantly, the Nautilus with a dial colored in Tiffany & Co.’s robin’s egg blue, unveiled in December 2021 in a limited edition of just 170 pieces (to mark Patek’s 170-year relationship with the Blue Box retailer).
Virtually every dealer we spoke to acknowledged that the 5711 embodied the luxury watch industry’s “hype watch” phenomenon (one reason seasoned Patek dealer and Collectability founder John Reardon voted to boot it off the list—“Nothing new or inspirational with these except a boom and bust cycle,” he says). And yet few people dispute that the enduring mania over the Tiffany blue edition is a reflection of perfect Patek Philippe fake watches‘ AAA reputation, and a powerful comment on the hot-for-horology times we live in.
“To have a watch that was $52,000 retail and in today’s market still sells for more than $1 million on the secondary market is pretty unbelievable,” says vintage watch specialist Eric Wind of Wind Vintage in Palm Beach, Fla.
For Patek lovers, however, the appeal of the standard 5711 is about so much more than price. “It’s the perfect everyday watch,” says Jasem Al Zeraei, a Kuwait-based collector whose alter ego is @Patekaholic. “It embodies everything that is Patek in today’s time.”
Fake Patek Philippe Ref. 5970 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Watches
As timepiece holy grails go, you’re unlikely to find one holier than the granddaddy of grand complications, the Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, ref. 5970.
“A direct descendant of Patek Philippe’s iconic references 1518 and 2499, the 5970 is admired by collectors for its superbly balanced proportions and 40 mm case diameter,” says Boutros. “Incorporating square pushers and tasteful stepped lugs, the 5970 harmonized modern styling with the classic roots of its revered vintage models. Released in 2004 and produced for just seven years, it was the brand’s last perpetual calendar chronograph to use a highly modified outsourced movement—a well-respected Lemania-based caliber. Produced in 18-karat yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, and platinum, its stunning, classic aesthetics and relative rarity makes any version highly sought after today.”

Among men unafraid to sport a few diamonds, the 5970 is beloved for laying the groundwork for another sought-after grand complication, the 5271P-001: “Building on the 5970P, which is my favorite modern Patek, this timepiece adds an amazing factory-set bezel, which elevates the whole affair creating a perfect black tie timepiece,” says Yoni Ben-Yehuda, head of business development at Material Good.
