I like 5712 more, 5711 probably more bubble resistant.

I prefer the clean dial of the 5711, but both are awesome.

I love the complications of the 12. You just don’t get bored with it. However I love the simplicity of the 11. I would like it more if it didn’t have a seconds hand. If I had both and was getting rid of one I would dump the 11. That being said I have a 12 and would love an 11 too!

I chose 5712 over 5711. I am wearing 5712 every day. I still want to own both. :)

To choose is to lose...
Both are on my list, the 5711 first and then the 5712
If it has to be only one, the original elegant clean dial icon the one and only 5711

12 all day. Dial makes it interesting as well as the slight touch of red

I think both are great watches to have because they have different styles. We should compare 5711 vs AP jumbo. Both are similar simple style watches and both are very beautiful.

My preference is the 12 and then the 11 but there are so many derivations. In a perfect world you could keep everything. In the real world, we all make choices about what we would like the mature portfolio to look like....

This is why I started the 3-5 patek collection thread.


When I started playing with real life barbies, I had to figure out which one I was going to keep ;)

Decisions. But between the 12 and 11 either. But prefer 12

I have both but I wear the 5711 more frequently. Maybe it sings to me more from the watchbox. Both are excellent though.

12 for me, 11 would have to have the P's blue to compete.
