I will never sell the 5711 white. 10x more versatile than the blue.
Wondering if you'd find the 5711 white 10x more versatile than the blue if you didn't have the 5712...

The blue 5711 covers any occasion I can think of whereas the white one is more sporty and as a result less versatile IMO. When I want to wear sth more sporty than the blue 5711 it'll be a tool watch I don't need to worry about in any shape or form...

It was for me. But when reducing the collection I decided to keep ... the 12. To the OP, I would make that trade. The 12 is just a unique piece, love the dial and the microroter.

White 5711 is the nicest of the nautilus line

No brainer, the 5712 is way more interesting in my view! I am also terribly biased as I am on a waiting list for one.

I'd prefer a white 5711 and get a 5712R but that's just me. Had the blue 12, don't miss it as prefer the rose gold version.

I did that exact trade & never looked back.

The only thing I would do different is keep both but I could not at the time.

100% do it.

From a common sense standpoint buy the 240 based more complicated movement. But that is not what all the fuss is about these days. A smarter move is to ditch the SS and move into a complicated pm model for which Patek excels.

Love the 11 white more than the blue. As others have said having a 11 white and a 12 is a good combo to have. Hoping to get a 11 white soon
