  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Nautilus is with no doubt the hottest timepiece in the market right now. With the recent discontinuation of the ref. 5711, collectors worldwide have been on a hunting craze for the Nautilus. First introduced in 2006, the ref. 5712 was among the very first modern complicated Nautilus to be offered along with its chronograph counterpart ref. 5980. With an estimation of Patek Philippe’s total production of stainless steel wristwatches to be about 22% of their entire annual production, the ref. 5712 in stainless steel is most certainly rare in today’s standards with resurfaced examples achieving extremely high prices in the market.

    The present example Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 from circa 2020 is offered in excellent overall condition with extremely minimal signs of use and wear. Fresh-to-the-market and accompanied by its set of accessories, this is the chance for collectors to acquire a specimen of the reference before it is no longer in production.

    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.
