Gaining immense popularity over the past few years, the Nautilus was a game changer for Patek Philippe in the late 1970s. It was a watch that have helped broken the traditional mindsets that differentiates a luxury watch between a tool watch. Introduced by Patek Philippe in 2006 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their Nautilus model, the reference 5712 being a successor of the renowned model 3712 shares a similar Calatrava-styled dial. With two strangely but yet asymmetrical positioned subsidiary dials and a fan-form power reserve sector at 11 o’clock, it is certainly unconventional but charming. Like many other Patek Philippe wristwatches that are all perfectly executed, the present 5712 has it’s undeniable charm.
