Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany - Who Owns It?
Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany - Released in December 2021, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-018 was created to commemorate the long-lasting partnership between Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co. This model with the typical style of Nautilus combined with the iconic blue turquoise (or should I say Tiffany?) colour for the dial is probably the most hyped and coveted luxury watch on earth nowadays.
Patek Philippe Tiffany for sale? This exclusive Patek Philippe watch was produced in only 170 units worldwide and is only available at Tiffany & Co. Also, it is worth mentioning that getting your hands on the model is super difficult because of the exclusiveness. You have to be super popular, rich, and have a strong watch buying history.
The first of the limited edition Patek Philippe Tiffany was sold at an auction for $6.5 million, 120 times more than its retail price of $52,000. Earlier this year, in January 2022, the watch was discontinued by Patek Philippe, which increased its value. Despite the skyrocketed market price increase, its popularity is still incomparable, with many high-profile celebrities having been spotted wearing it since its release.
Which celebrities have been spotted wearing this watch on their wrists? Keep reading this post!
Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany - Zach Lu

As mentioned, the first piece of Patek Tiffany was sold at an auction for $6.5 million, and Zach Lu was the first person to receive the hyped watch on the planet. Actually, Zach dropped out when the auction bidding crossed $5 million. Lucky him, six weeks after the auction, the original auction winner was unable to complete the transaction, then he was offered the watch as he was identified as a person having strong buying history of purchasing the watch.
Zach is an avid Californian watch collector who became famous on Instagram among the watch community (CMIIW). The 31-year-old collector has been collecting watches since the age of 15.
Below you can watch the auction of the first Patek Tiffany watch that reaches $6.5 Million.
Patek Tiffany - Jay Z

Jay-Z was the first celebrity spotted wearing the blue Tiffany Patek. Not only is he known as a successful rapper, but he is also an avid watch collector. Moreover, Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce are Tiffany & Co. brand ambassadors. Since this watch is Tiffany and Co.'s exclusive watch, it was not surprising to see him as the first celebrity with it.
Tiffany Patek 5740 - Bernard Arnault

In January 2022, around one month after the release of the Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany, the Chairman, and CEO of LVMH Bernard Arnault, was seen on Instagram playing chess with his son, the CEO of Tag Heuer Frédéric Arnault. In the picture, we can clearly see a watch with the blue Tiffany on his wrist.
Now comes a big BUT! On closer inspection, the watch on his wrist is not the 5711 Patek Tiffany; in fact, an even rarer timepiece. It's a unique Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual Calendar with the Tiffany dial. Not a surprise, isn't it?
Patek 5711 Tiffany Dial - Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo Dicaprio and Patek Philippe Tiffany 5711/1A-018
In my humble opinion, Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't seem to be much of a watch guy. But interestingly, the Titanic actor joined an elite list of Patek Tiffany wearers. He was spotted wearing the watch while watching the Los Angeles Lakers vs Portland Trail Blazers at Crypto.com Arena in February 2022.
LeBron James - Patek Tiffany

All eyes were on LeBron's James' wrist at the Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles earlier this year. During the event, the four-time NBA's most valuable player was spotted dripping in jewelry, but his fantastic piece was the Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany.
Tiffany Patek on James' wrist is actually to be expected because we might have known that he is also an avid watch collector and his watches are mind-blowing! So it was just a matter of time until he appeared with the watch.
Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 Tiffany - James Harden

Another basketball player spotted wearing the 5711 Patek Tiffany is James Harden of Philadelphia. He was spotted wearing the wrist while attending an event held by his close friend, the rapper Lil Baby.
Patek Philippe Tiffany - Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg and Patek Philippe Tiffany 5711/1A-018
The passionate Hollywood watch collector Mark Wahlberg was the next celebrity spotted wearing the hyped Patek Philippe Tiffany 5711A. I knew it! My prediction was right that someday, we might see Patek Tiffany on Wahlberg's wrist because he has been collecting insane watches. If you don't believe me, please have a look at my other blog post, where I have listed some of Wahlberg's horological choices here.
It was 18 April 2022 when he posted a video on his Instagram talking about something, and we could see the watch on his wrist. I just got the feeling that he, most likely, only wanted to flex his new toy. Getting your hands on this timepiece is not easy, so when you have one on your wrist, you just want to tell the world about it. It makes sense, right?
Patek Tiffany 5711 - Daniel Arsham

A New York-based artist Daniel Arsham was pictured flexing the Patek Philippe Tiffany. It is not clear how much of a watch collector he is, but he seems to be well connected in the watch world, as he sports a limited edition piece.
5711 Patek Tiffany - Corey Gamble

The Met Gala, known as the First Monday in May, returned on 2 May 2022! The lavish event returned to its regular time slot this year after being postponed in 2020 and held in September last year. A-list celebs descended upon the Metropolitan Museum of Art red carpet to celebrate the museum's new exhibition.
Kris Jenner arrived with his partner Corey Gamble during the event this year. Interestingly, Gamble’s Patek Tiffany, with its eye-catching Tiffany Blue dial, caught the attention of the watch community.
Patek Philippe 5711 Tiffany - Tommy Hilfiger
Thomas J. Hilfiger and Patek Philippe Tiffany 5711/1A-018
Thomas Jacob Hilfiger, an American fashion designer and founder of one of the world's most premium luxury lifestyle brands Tommy Hilfiger Corporation, and his wife were seen hanging out together with Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble on 13 June 2022. Interestingly, he and Corey Gamble wore the same clothes and watch, Patek Philippe Tiffany.
Patek Philippe Tiffany and Brenton Wickam

I'm sure that other non-celebrities have already received the watch, but they just haven't posted it on social media for us to find out. So far, Brenton Wickam is the first non-celeb (assuming Zach Lu is a celeb) spotted on social media receiving the Tiffany Nautilus on 17 June 2022.
Isn't it hard to get your hands on this watch? Yes, it surely is. Your next question might be: Then why did he get it? Well, he is probably not as popular as Jay-Z, but he must be super rich and an important person. He is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and CEO of Urban Rock Properties, a real estate investment and development company focusing on value add commercial opportunities in Silicon Valley and beyond.
Wickam has been a reputable commercial real estate agent for over 25 years. He has successfully bought and sold real estate worth more than $100 million and has developed an extensive network of connections. I assume this was why Patek Philippe and Tiffany offered him the chance.
Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany - Prince of Qatar Sheikh Joaan

The recent public figure spotted on social media wearing the Patek Philippe Tiffany is the Prince of Qatar, Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. During the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha on 10 July 2022, the watch was seen on his wrist. It is not a surprise that he has this watch. I mean, his watch collection is incredible, so it was just a matter of time to see him wearing the watch.
In my opinion, he is the first Arabian public figure seen with the Patek Tiffany (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Another Arab joining an elite list of the extremely rare and hype Patek Philippe Tiffany wearer is Dr. Hamad Al Naumi who is known as the Chief Corporate Affairs Officer at Ooredo Group.
Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany - Ed Sheeran
Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany - Ed Sheeran
Finally, finally, finally! Finally, my question is answered. I was wondering when I would see Ed Sheeran wear this hype watch - Patek Philippe Nautilus 'Tiffany' 5711/1A-018. One year (more or less) since its release in December 2021, we can now see this watch on the singer and also watch collector Ed Sheeran's wrist.
It was during his performance on stage during the 37th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at Microsoft Theater on 5 November 2022 in Los Angeles, California.
