  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Nautilus model needs no introduction. In 2006, Patek Philippe celebrated their 30th Anniversary of the coveted model with the launched a series of new references 5711, 5712 and 5980.

    The ref. 5712G-001 was one of the most complicated Nautilus models offered at the time designed to be a feature-packed wristwatch with sophistication. Encased in white gold, the timepiece displays a smoky grey dial instead of the blue dial featured in the stainless steel model. Adding depth and legibility is a small detail highlighted in red such as the four dotted power reserve and the first day of the calendar. Offered in a crocodile strap pairing, the ref. 5712G-001 gives collectors a luxurious alternative to the sport model, giving it an elegant twist for the discerning ladies and gentlemen.

    The present example from circa 2007 belongs to an early example of the reference with its movement still stamped with the prestigious Geneva seal. Presented in an attractive condition and accompanied with its original Certificate of Origin and a full set of accessories, it is a magnificent opportunity for collectors to acquire a beautiful example of this sought after model.
