  • Catalogue Essay

    In Baselworld 2006, Patek Philippe launched a series of Nautilus models that would shape the collection of the modern iterations of one of the most coveted family of watches produced ever by Patek Philippe. With most models launched in stainless steel and featuring the signature blue ribbed dial, the only reference that was offered with an alternative case metal and appeal was the ref. 5712. Introduced in both stainless steel with bracelet and pink gold with crocodile strap in the same year, the ref. 5712 is most definitely one of the most sought after wristwatches produced by any manufacturer in recent times.

    The present example of a Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712 in pink gold fitted with a crocodile strap is offered in excellent overall condition and is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a discontinued model complete with the original Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin.
