Swiss-made Patek Philippe replica watch is the maker of some of the finest timepieces on …
The Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 replica watch in stainless steel, is one of the most iconic Nautilus models as it was originally released as ref. 3712/1A in 2005 and produced for less than a year. The Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712 is available in 18K white gold and 18K rose gold on crocodile strap and in stainless steel with matching stainless steel bracelet like the one we have here. The Nautilus line was originally launched in 1976 and it still looks as sharp and amazing as it did back then.
The Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 in stainless steel is fitted with a gorgeous black-blue dial with a very unique hue. Its siblings in 18K rose gold and 18K white gold, are fitted with a slate grey dial that is also gorgeous but not as strikingly beautiful as the one on this stainless steel model. Just like on all other Nautilus models, the dial features the horizontally embossed Nautilus pattern accentuated with ten applied luminous hour markers in 18K white gold.
The steel fake Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 is fitted with a 40 mm case like the Nautilus ref. 5711, a case that is only 0.5 mm smaller than that on the Nautilus Chrono ref. 5980 we’ve featured here and here. On this hands-on review, we will also explain the differences between this reference and its predecessor. Fitted with a date indicator, moon phases and a power reserve indicator, this reference is simply awesome. The Nautilus ref. 5712 stays true to the design cues of the original Nautilus ref. 3700 and its predecessor ref. 3712.
Other differences between the Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 3712 and its successor the Nautilus ref. 5712 include: a two-piece case on the earlier vs. a three-piece case construction on the latter, a beefier screw-down crown on the latter, a more rounded case on the latter and more square-shaped center links on the bracelet of the ref. 5712.
While there’s a lot going on on this dial, the layout is still relatively uncluttered and quite nice. The layout includes a power reserve indicator at 10 o’clock, a snailed date indicator with moon phases between 6 and 9 o’clock and a running seconds subdial at 4 o’clock —the latter is an excellent feature that helps the wearer realize whether the watch is running or not.
Regardless, the bracelet is exquisitely finished with satin brushed outer links and highly polished center links featuring the Nautilus fold-over clasp with safety lock. The Swiss-made fake Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. ref. 5712/1A-001 in stainless steel is fitted with the same type of stainless steel bracelet as other Nautilus references, but slightly more robust. While from a design standpoint we feel the look of the bracelet is flawless and a true icon, its construction is still somewhat light when compared to a Rolex or Audemars Piguet bracelet.
