  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe annual calendar debuted in 1996 offered a complication that was deemed ‘useful’, simple and yet entirely new. The newly patented mechanism needing adjustment only once a year injected with enduring technical and design prowess flourished into a vast collection among the Patek Philippe family. In 2010, the continued brilliance extended its reach to the launch of the Nautilus ref. 5726 fitted with a dark grey dial paired with an elegant leather strap. Housed in the instantaneously recognizable case design, the model is fitted with the calibre 324 appreciated underneath the ample display of the sapphire caseback. Sporting good looks and a worry-free annual calendar mechanism, the second variation joined the family and was launched two years later in 2012. This time paired with a bracelet and for the first time (with the exception of a vintage prototype piece) the Nautilus was donning a white dial contrasted with bold black surrounds marker. With the discontinuation of the two models in 2019, the firm launched the third variant with a blue dial which remains available in the current collection today.

    Quickly becoming a cult collectible amongst the Nautilus lineage, the present ref. 5726/1A-010 sporting a refreshing white dial is preserved in excellent overall condition and accompanied by its Certificate of Origin and accessories.
