  • Catalogue Essay

    Admired from L.A. to Timbuktu for its voluptuous shape and nonchalant look, the Patek Philippe Nautilus model needs no introduction. In 2006, Patek Philippe launched the new reference 5712 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this coveted model.

    The present reference 5712 is cased in 18K white gold and features a power reserve indicator, moon phases and date. It was the most complicated Nautilus model on offer at the time, providing a more sophisticated option to its time and date only counterparts.

    Its white gold case with a seal grey dial comes to life in the details. With a mix of brushed, embossed and smooth dial finishes, the coldness of the pallet suddenly exudes a warmth and sumptuousness that only this combination can provide. Furthermore, adding more depth to the dial, some small details have been highlighted in red such as the four last dots of the power reserve and the first day of the calendar.

    The present example from circa 2007 belongs to an early example of the reference with its movement still stamped with the prestigious Geneva seal. Presented in excellent overall condition and accompanied with the original Certificate of Origin and a full set of accessories, it is a magnificent opportunity for collectors to acquire a beautiful example of this sought after model.
