  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 has become one of the hottest sellers within the Nautilus collection. Its complicated movement featuring power reserve, date, moonphase display and offset indications makes it a favorite amongst collectors.

    The version in pink and white gold, like the present example, is a rare variation that is no longer in production. The grey dial changes color depending on the light, going from silver to chocolate providing a certain playfulness to the watch.

    The present two-tone Nautilus is an incredibly rare variant of an already rare watch as it was retailed by Tiffany & Co. whose signature lays discreetly on the lower part of the dial. It is to the best of our research the only example that has appeared on the auction market with Tiffany & Co. signature.

    In overall very appealing condition and complete with all accessories and even Tiffany & Co outer box, the present 5712 exudes casual elegance and is a must have for the collector of rare modern timepieces.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. 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.
