Notes

In response to Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak, in 1976, Patek Philippe launched one of its most emblematic models: the Nautilus. Sports and elegance are the two keywords to define it. It is probably best known for its slim octagonal case which was designed by Gerald Genta. The manufacture patented the Annual Calendar complication, a new mechanism that took into account the different lengths of the months. Thus, only one adjustment is required for February. The reference 5726 created in 2010 appeared to be the perfect union of sportive luxury and high complication wristwatch.
We are pleased to present this exceptional example consigned by the Hong kong-based original owner, purchased in Hong Kong in 2010, still in excellent condition, with original box and original certificate.
