  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2006, reference 5712/1A is without a doubt one of the most coveted modern sport's watch models. One of the ultimate status symbols, this complicated version of the timeless Nautilus exudes casual elegance and is so sought-after that, according to Patek Philippe, the wait to receive one easily lasts years.

    The present example is not only available immediately, but it furthermore is one of the earliest examples manufactured, dating back to 2007. A final layer of appeal is offered by the Geneva Seal present on the movement. Only the examples manufactured circa between 2006 and 2010 bear this "old school" distinction, since 2010 Patek Philippe Seal is used.

  • 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.
