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

None to be honest, I would go for a more modern 5990 for instance, but that's my opinion.

As 5712 owner, always want to own a 5711, but if I have to choose one, it has to be 5712

5711 for sure. The clean dial let me with no words. Iím looking forward to seeing on my wrist soon.

5712 is totally precious too but if I had to choose between, 11 will be the choosen.

I would keep both. I have never seen this as a bubble. Prices will rise and fall, certainly, but the demand/supply dynamic is not changing any time soon. PP is a company that tightly controls supply and they will react quickly to market changes if necessary to maintain the brand value.

I had the opportunity to chose between both, and went with the 5711. I love the 5712, but the simplicity and elegant timeless design of the 5711 won me over. And it was the one I had been wanting for quite some years.

Would be happy to wear either.

I had the pleasure of choosing between a 5711 and 12 both in SS 9 years ago.

I chose the 11 bec it was the original design of Genta plus the fact that the 12 is almost 10k USD more expensive or a brand new Daytona 116520 (which i later bought).

Now, if money isn't a consideration, I'll still get the 5711 as simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
