The Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual Calendar 5740/1G squares off with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak RD#2 Perpetual Calendar ultra-thin. Audemars Piguet brought its biggest name in its thinnest case to SIHH. With a diameter of 41mm and a thickness of only 6.3mm, the Audemaers Piguet Royal Oak 26586PT is a dream machine with a motor to match; the Audemars Piguet manufacture caliber 5133 is only 2.89mm thick. With the Royal Oak RD#2, AP has set the world record for the thinnest automatic perpetual calendar. Patek Philippe counters with its first ever Nautilus Perpetual Calendar, the white gold 5740/1G. It measures 40mm across its iconic case, and with a thickness of 8.42mm, this Nautilus is thick only in comparison to its record-setting rival from Audemars Piguet. A blue sunburst dial gives this Patek Philippe Nautilus a brighter smile than its gradient dial Nautilus 5711 brother. While the Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual Calendar can be purchased for $119,070, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak RD#2 remains a prototype for the time being. Until further notice from Les Brassus regarding production prospects, Patek Philippe wins the Battle of the Brands at Baselworld 2018 and takes sole possession of the field.
