  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2006, Patek Philippe celebrated the 30th anniversary of their iconic Nautilus model by introducing new references to replace the former models and renewing with the large “jumbo” size of the original ref 3700. The ref. 5712 along with the reference 3712 (made for only one year in 2005) was at the time the most complicated Nautilus model featuring a power reserve indicator, moonphases and date. It is immediately recognizable from its predecessor due to the lack of hour marker at 7 o'clock.

    The present reference 5712 sets itself apart from other examples thanks to the 11 characters printed discreetly between 5 and 6 o’clock: Tiffany & Co.

    The reference 5712’s attractive design, combined with its wrist presence makes it one of the most desirable modern sports watches available on the market today. In fact, its immense popularity has rendered this watch difficult to procure at a Patek Phillipe retailer, requiring years of waiting for an allocation. The hurdle is magnified manifold when it comes to the extremely sought-after and collectible Tiffany signed examples.

    Preserved in excellent condition, the present watch is furthermore accompanied by its Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin, setting pin, product literature, leather wallet, and Patek Philippe box as well as the outer Tiffany & Co. packaging.

    The present reference 5712 with Tiffany & Co. signature is only the 4th example in steel to appear on the market, underlining the extreme rarity of the watch.
