Patek Philippe shocked the world in January when they announced that they were discontinuing their most popular model, the Patek Phillippe Nautilus ref. 5711/1A-010. The blue-dialed version of Patek’s iconic steel sports watch had become somewhat mythical in the watch community, with waitlists for the watch rumored to have been as long as at least a decade before its discontinuation. But if you’ve got your heart set on owning this Patek, there is some good news: you can still safely and confidently buy one on eBay.
eBay has recently made purchasing luxury watches on their site even safer thanks to the company’s Authenticity Guarantee. When you purchase a watch priced over $2,000, it first goes to eBay’s team of expert authenticators, who use their know-how and high-tech equipment to verify that the watch is both authentic and matches its listing. Once approved, the watch is then sent directly to you — and the entire service is included for free with your purchase. So head on over to eBay now to take a look at the site’s selection of Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5711/1A-010s, and remember that they’re guaranteed to be the real deal.
