My Nautilus 5712

Everyone knows my passion is vintage watches. Once in a while, a modern watch would catch my attention and the more I see it being worn by friends and colleagues, the more i wanted to have one.

So I finally bit the bullet and got myself this Patek Philippe 5712 with the blue dial. It has the visual appeal and presence that I am looking for in a watch. It never fails to mesmerize me every time i look at it.

Definitely, a welcome addition to my collection

Did you prefer the SS over the White gold model, given the small price difference? Just curious on what痴 your opinion in this regard. Does this one feels much heavier than the other?

Well, with white gold, you don't get the bracelet or blue dial. Most want that combination but not sure what OP's mindset was.

I always prefer my watches in steel. They are more heavy duty compared to the gold models which gets scratched and dented easily.
