Hands-On: The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726/1A
Nothing truly new under the Sun with this Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726/1A, yet you wager that they need to make (another) hanging tight rundown for it. We’re discussing the Nautilus with yearly schedule and moon stages display.
It is no mysterious that I love and regard the Patek Philippe Nautilus. The first reference 3700/1A being my top choice by a long shot, with the first monobloc case development (window) and type 28-255C development. A nearby second is a watch manufacturing plant that was presented 30 years after the fact and remained near to the first plan, the reference 5711/1A. I did a comparison article between the first Patek Philippe Nautilus 3700/1A and the (current) reference 5711/1A here .
Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726/1A
Today, I am taking a gander at one of the varieties of the Nautilus, one with a yearly schedule and moon stages pointer. It is the Patek Philippe Nautilus reference 5726/1A and presented as an oddity this year in Baselworld. However, pause, we’ve seen a Nautilus with yearly schedule and moon stages show previously. That’s right, they really presented a Nautilus reference 5726A in 2010 with a dark dial and a cowhide strap.
The new Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726/1A isn’t very different, notwithstanding, it has a hardened steel arm band rather than the cowhide tie and it comes with a lovely blue dial. The blue dial depends on the first Patek reference 3700/1A that I referenced above, with a level decorating and shading evaluating from blue to dark. White gold hour markers and hands are applied with lume for better lucidness in low-light condition.
Two gaps at 12 o’clock show the day and the month, while the date is at 6 o’clock. The little hand at 6 o’clock is the 24-hour pointer and in the equivalent subdial, you’ll discover the moon stages. On the Nautilus 5711/1A, you will discover the date at 3 o’clock, which I discover somewhat more elegant. For me, the date at 6 o’clock in this 5726/1A is a gnawed off and ought to be situated a smidgen all the more away from the rehaut. Maybe I might have managed without the 24-hour marker and have utilized the subdial as date pointer all things being equal. Not certain, but rather it seems somewhat like they had one little component left, the date window, and simply expected to put it where it would in any case keep the plan balanced. It isn’t a dealbreaker for me, however then again, in the event that you spending these measures of cash on a watch, it ought to be just about as near wonderful as possible.
Differences with the 5711/1A
Normally I would say that you shouldn’t meddle with a unique, however eventually, you should purchase what you like. Likewise, on the off chance that you as of now have the 3700/1A or 5711/1A, and searching for something to add, the 5726/1A is an incredible reference. Other than usefulness, there’s a little distinction in the components of these watch factorys The Nautilus 5726/1A is with its 40.5mm x 11.3mm somewhat bigger than the time just reference 5711/1A with its 40mm x 8.3mm. Our photograph underneath shows obviously that this Nautilus 5726/1A is somewhat thicker than the three hands rendition. The water obstruction of 120 meters is indistinguishable, obviously. In the side of the case, you will discover little correctors for the schedule complication.
Another contrast with the ref. 5711/1A Nautilus is the thickness of the wristband. As the case is somewhat thicker, Patek Philippe ensured that the arm band is somewhat thicker too, so it is a superior fit with the case.
Caliber 324 S QA LU 24H/303
Inside the Nautilus Annual Calendar with moon stages is Patek’s type 324 S QA LU 24H/303. Surely dependent on the type 324 S development that we’ll find in the Nautilus 5711/1A. Other than the time, it demonstrates the day, date, month, moon stages and has a 24-hour pointer. The caliber 324 S QA LU 24H/303 comprises of 347 parts and can be appreciated through the sapphire case back.
As consistently, the completing is brilliant and the rotor is made of 21-carat gold. At that point there’s the Geneva striping on the extensions (10 altogether) and perlage on the fundamental plate. The development ticks at 28,800vph (4hz) and it has a force save of max. 45 hours.
Aside from my comment on the date gap, I truly love this Nautilus variety. Concurred, it is just an aesthetical update of something that was at that point there for a very long time, yet the blue dial and hardened steel arm band make it an intriguing expansion. In 2010, the Nautilus yearly schedule with moon stages was presented with a dark dial and calfskin lash and in 2012 we saw the rendition with a white dial (and hardened steel arm band). Up until now, this is my favourite.
The retail cost is €41.320,- (counting VAT) yet that doesn’t say a lot of these days as you most likely are aware. It is about accessibility, or the deficiency in that department to be more exact. On the off chance that you are adequately fortunate to bear the cost of one and sufficiently fortunate to get one designated, you won’t be frustrated for sure.
