All you need to know about the Patek Philippe 5712A

The Patek Philippe Nautilus is by far the most popular model that Patek produces, this may be down to pop culture or maybe it is because the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 is one of the few steel watches that Patek Philippe make which makes it light and comfortable. The overall look of the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 is stunning in our opinion and the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 comes with an impressive offering of complications including a power reserve indicator and moon phase. Join us in this blog as we explore the design features that create one of the world's most desirable watches, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712A.

How the Patek Philippe 5712A meets market changes!

In 2006, Patek Philippe replaced the 3712A with the 5712A. The 5712 features many minute but noticeable changes. For example, Patek Philippe upgraded the case size to 40 millimetres, just 1 millimetre larger than its predecessor, and upgraded some of the dial features to make it more legible. This just goes to demonstrate how Patek Patek Philippe is always striving for greatness, as they continuously adapt to the ever-changing watch market by making well-calculated design and catalogue changes. Although the movement stayed the same, there's no doubt that the two watches are very different. Discontinuations and the release of new watches help to keep the market fresh, keep collectors happy and create hype around the brand's watches.

The ‘240 PS IRM C LU' was introduced in 2005 at the later end of production for the 3712A and was used in the Patek Philippe 5712A for the watches entire production. Consisting of over 265 parts, the self-winding movement boasts 48 hours of power reserve and a 'Patek Philippe Seal', which means it has an accuracy of -3/+2. In addition to being visually pleasing, through the exhibition case back, the movement is also responsible for an hour hand, minute hand, small seconds, the date by hand, power reserve indicator, and a moon phase indicator.

The dial of the 5712A has a complex and intricate design that combines multiple complications, colours and textures. Starting with the texture, the dial is horizontally embossed, which adds an additional element of depth and detail to the watch. Patek Philippe love to implement gradients into their designs, and the 5712A is no exception. The dial features a black-to-blue gradient, which gives the watch detail and depth, complexity and an appealing colour profile. Across the dial, you can find subtle hints of red, which creates a perfect contrast. The 5712A has many complications, which create a pleasing aesthetic and an element of functionality. The hour markers and hands are beautifully shaped, luminescent and highly legible. All of the above come together to create an exquisite dial.
