  • Catalogue Essay

    Released at the Baselworld 2006, the Patek Philippe ref. 5712 was officially born with an example in stainless steel and an example in 18K pink gold. Establishing a new era for the famed Nautilus collection, the reference was released together with the refs. 5711 and 5980, though the ref. 5712 was the only model launched in 2006 with two different case metals.

    Retaining its classic and iconic case and ribbed dial, the ref. 5712 features an asymmetrical dial layout indicating date, moon phases, power reserve of up to 48 hours and small seconds. What is notably worth mentioning is that the ref. 5712 in pink gold was the first ever Nautilus model to be fitted with a leather strap.

    The present example Patek Philippe ref. 5712 in 18K pink gold stamped with a Geneva seal is one of the last examples before the switch to the Patek Philippe seal. Offered in excellent overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories, this is a wonderful opportunity for collectors to acquire an attractive example of this sought after reference.
