  • Catalogue Essay

    As it is admired by many, the Patek Philippe ref. 5712 is one of the most beloved references in the Nautilus family. Debuted in 2006, the reference was one of several to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Nautilus. Offered in steel, white gold, pink gold and two-tone stainless steel and yellow gold, it is with no doubt that the steel variant is the most sought after due to its timeless and iconic steel on blue appeal.

    Credited as one of the most timeless and luxurious sports watches of all time and designed by no one other than Gerald Genta, it is without a doubt an icon on its own. The ref. 5712 carries much of a similar DNA as the ref. 5711, it further boasts a power reserve indicator, date, moon phases and small seconds all housed in the same diameter as the ref. 5711. Attractive, luxurious and practical, the reference is highly sought after in the market. The present example is kept and preserved in excellent overall condition. This early example dating back to 2008 is also further accompanied by the full set of accessories including the original certificate and presentation box. This is a jaw dropping opportunity to acquire one of the most hunted watches in the market now.
