  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1996, Patek Philippe patented the annual calendar complication, a practical yet complicated mechanism that took into account the different lengths of the months and required only one annual adjustment in February. In 2010, the brand launched its first Nautilus with annual calendar as the reference 5726.

    Encased in stainless steel and fitted on a strap, the reference 5726A-001 features a well-proportioned 40.5mm case that houses a harmoniously arranged dial inspired by the brand’s vintage perpetual calendar models. The blue gradient dial presents the day and months via apertures at 12 o’clock, and moon phase and date indications at 6 o’clock.
    Further enhancing its desirability, the present example was retailed by Tiffany & Co. and features the prestigious retailer’s signature at 6 o’clock.

    The present watch is fresh-to-market and consigned by the original owner. It is preserved in like-new condition and comes complete with all accompanying accessories as well as a bespoke-made orange fabric strap.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. 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. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
