Hands-On: The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726/1A
Nothing truly new under the Sun with this Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726/1A, however 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 wide margin, with the first monobloc case development (window) and type 28-255C development. A nearby second is a dhgate watches 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 marker. 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 calfskin strap.
The new Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726/1A isn’t entirely different, notwithstanding, it has a hardened steel arm band rather than the calfskin lash and it comes with a delightful blue dial. The blue dial depends on the first Patek reference 3700/1A that I referenced above, with an even embellishing and shading reviewing from blue to dark. White gold hour markers and hands are applied with lume for better clarity in low-light condition.
Two openings 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 a smidgen more elegant. For me, the date at 6 o’clock in this 5726/1A is a gnawed off and ought to be situated somewhat 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 considered. 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 even. It isn’t a dealbreaker for me, yet then again, in the event that you spending these measures of cash on a watch, it ought to be just about as near amazing as possible.
Differences with the 5711/1A
Normally I would say that you shouldn’t play with a unique, yet eventually, you should purchase what you like. Additionally, 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 astounding reference. Other than usefulness, there’s a little contrast in the elements of these dhgate watches 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 variant. The water opposition 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 arm band. As the case is somewhat thicker, Patek Philippe ensured that the wristband is somewhat thicker also, 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. To be sure founded 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 respected through the sapphire case back.
As consistently, the completing is glorious and the rotor is made of 21-carat gold. At that point there’s the Geneva striping on the scaffolds (10 altogether) and perlage on the primary plate. The development ticks at 28,800vph (4hz) and it has a force hold of max. 45 hours.
Aside from my comment on the date opening, 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 a fascinating 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 form with a white dial (and treated steel wristband). Up until now, this is my favourite.
The retail cost is €41.320,- (counting VAT) however that doesn’t say a lot of these days as you probably are aware. It is about accessibility, or the scarcity in that department to be more exact. On the off chance that you are sufficiently fortunate to manage the cost of one and adequately fortunate to get one distributed, you won’t be baffled for sure.
