  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Nautilus is undoubtedly one of a handful that still hold their position as the hottest and most sought-after watches in the market today. Ever since the recent discontinuation of the ref. 5711, collectors who had missed their chance in the past are now fighting to get a hold of a piece from the Nautilus family for themselves. Introduced in 2006, the ref. 5712 was one of the very first modern complicated Nautiluses ever to be offered, along with its chronograph sibling, the ref. 5980. With an estimation that Patek Philippe’s total production of stainless steel wristwatches to be about 22% of their entire annual production, the stainless steel ref. 5712 is most certainly a rare bird by today’s standards. As the demand for this reference far surpasses its supply, the resurfaced examples have been achieving record-breaking prices in the market.

    The present Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 is a brand-new example from circa 2009. It is not every day that one will come across a single-sealed example and fresh-to-the-market, this chance to acquire a Nautilus with date and moon phases is as rare as the watch itself. Besides, who knows how long this sporty collectors’ dream may still be in production for?

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.
