  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Nautilus, reference 3712 fitted with power reserve, date and moon phases, was manufactured for a very short time indeed. Rumoured to be discontinued after only 8 months in production, this reference was replaced with the 5712 when Patek Philippe celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Nautilus family. The way in which to identify the difference between the 3712 and 5712, the reference 3712 still has a partial numeral at 7 o'clock, where on the 5712 it has been removed.

    Offered in mint new condition, and still retaining all original accessories, this watch is sure to provide much pleasure to its new owner.

    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.
