To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Nautilus, Patek Philippe launched a series of highly coveted models, including the famous 5711, the 5712 and the 5980, the first chronograph in the Nautilus family. Whilst most examples found are fitted with a blue dial, the white dial is a rarer variant as it was produced solely from 2012 to 2014. Discarding the conventional chronograph dial layout, Patek Philippe instead introduced a simplified design using a co-axial subdial combining all registers into one to illustrate the sophisticated flyback chronograph. Offered in excellent condition, the current watch is surely a rare find in the Nautilus chronograph collection.
