  • Catalogue Essay

    Preserved in absolutely as-new condition and still sealed in its plastic sleeve, this reference 5712 retailed by Tiffany & Co. is furthermore accompanied by its Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin setting pin, product literature, leather wallet, and Patek Philippe box. On top of this, it comes also with the outer Tiffany & Co. packaging, and with the Patek Philippe number factory paperbox, a rare find as it usually is not consigned to the client when delivering the watch.

    Displaying a date, power reserve and moon phases complication, reference 5712 was the successor of reference 3712. It is immediately recognizable from its predecessor due to the lack of hour marker at 7 o'clock. Made to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the famous Nautilus collection in 2006, the model was a commercial success. Its good looks, combined with a hefty presence makes it one of the most desirable modern sports watches available on the market today. In fact, it is incredibly difficult to obtain one at a Patek Philippe retailer, requiring years of waiting to be allocated one. That is even more true - in fact at a superior level of magnitude - when it comes to the extremely sought-after and collectible Tiffany signed examples.

    The present reference 5712 with Tiffany & Co. signature is only the 3rd example in steel to appear on the market, underlining the extreme rarity of the watch.

Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
