  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2006, Patek Philippe released a new line of their coveted Nautilus model featuring for the first time, variants with complications such as the ref. 5712 and ref. 5980. While all its signature elements of the Nautilus are retained, the dial featured more than just a set of hands and a date aperture. The ref. 5712 is powered by the manufacturer's micro-rotor caliber 240 with a date function, small seconds, moon phases and a power reserve indication of up to 48 hours. Extremely successful and iconic, the reference has gained much attention in the market over the years and is arguably one of the most sought after timepieces in the market today.

    Initially launched in stainless steel with an integrated bracelet and a variant in white gold with a leather strap, the model was also available with baguette diamond-set examples in white gold and pink gold via the refs. 5722G, 5722R, 5724G and 5724R. All four references featured a baguette diamond-setting on the case with ref. 5722 only bearing a diamond-set bezel and the ref. 5724 with a diamond-set bezel and lugs. Providing a glamorous appeal to the 5712, the ref. 5724G is perfect for an important black tie event while the 5712A is a perfect timepiece for daily wear, both most importantly featuring the same complications.

    The present example Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5724G-001 is presented in excellent overall condition with very light and careful wear. Offered with the full set of accessories, the present reference was discontinued this year by Patek Philippe making this a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire one presented in this condition.
