5711 Vs 5980

Oct 14, 2019,21:09 PM

hello team,

i had the pleasure to try these two breasts some months ago

and I want to share with you two shots.

the integrated pushers drive me crazy, but i like more the "original body" of the 5711

chronograph is definitely my favorite complication, but it seems to be a little bit clumsy on the wrist.

so i like more 5711? hmm i don't know, most likely the 5712...and yes, better the 3712.

enjoy the pictures, and pay no attention to my ramblings ;-)

You were even mentioning the integrated pushers :-)

Of the breasts LOL Besides that: two breasts are always better than one ;-)

Well, this bashi-bazouk would have the 5711. Mille sabords! ;-) Best Captain Haddock

Thank you. You see, I had the best education possible

I see! Bravo. [nt]

 By: amanico : September 24th, 2015-01:52

yeah, most likely :-) [nt]

5980 a , heftier. More functions , a chrono.

 By: geross : September 23rd, 2015-10:35
Very macho watch. Fits your wrist. Nicely. Cheers Geross

Don't worry...

I have 3712, 5711 and 5980 - all with steel bracelets and blue dials. Which one is my favourite? Honestly, I do not know. They all have their different charm. I guess better to have all three. Best, Kari

I have 3712 and 5980 and the latter gets the most wrist time

I agree

 By: dr.kol : September 24th, 2015-02:06
The nice thing is that 3712 repeats the original case construction but has an interesting movement and dial. Best Kari

I'm with Noblechrono

 By: compliwatch : September 23rd, 2015-11:39
I have the 5711/1a and 5980/1A. The 5980 gets the most wristime of all my watches. The 5711 gets hardly any at all. I do like to look at it though. Kind of like the woman you marry vs. the woman you date. hahaha.

lol nice metaphor ;) [nt]

5980 ...  

Well it depends

 By: Mark in Paris : September 23rd, 2015-14:09
First, I find all the versions of the Nautilus interesting and attractive (even if I have my preferences, especially concerning the bracelet vs strap issue). What made me buy my first Nautilus, and go for the 5712, is the thinness. I tried a 5711 and fell... 

I must admit i did fall in love with the Patek 5980

 By: Bill : September 23rd, 2015-15:20
the Patek 5980 with Blue just sparkles on the wrist. The chrono is a real pleasure and such balance on the dial. Bill Patek 5980 ...  

I will no longer be able to fly commercial. LOL

...as it\'s not in a French letter...!

yeah, it works. btw the price gap is not small!

 By: gensiulia : September 23rd, 2015-23:20
i have to consider this thing too, obviously. amazing on your wrist! cheers Billy. chris

I was a long lust. As the say It was itch I needed to scratch.

 By: Bill : September 23rd, 2015-23:34
It was not spur of the moment thing. It was a long time desire. Just never felt to be a PP man. But it was sporty and many of the collectors I admire find it has a place in a collection. Bill

Being serious

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : September 23rd, 2015-16:04
I really do like the contrast of the tattoo and the clean lines of the 5711. It rocks.

I took a slightly different twist

 By: 4Js : September 23rd, 2015-18:20
I was hungry for the nautilus as soon as the series launched in current versions. I begged my AD for the 5980, then I wanted the 5712 RG. Delivery was impossible so I took the 5711 I actually use the 5980 more, but each time I wear the 5711 I love the sma...  

That is a very sexy Patek pair.

 By: Bill : September 23rd, 2015-21:07
Works perfectly sporty classy and you can pick which is which. The 5980 is still my weak spot. I am just having trouble seeing the difference in dial color Blue / blue gray / black are there really three or is the market confused. What color dial is your ... 

There are three, but

 By: Park : September 23rd, 2015-22:06
they are blue, black, and white. Park

So I guess the misnomer is gray. I see the Blue as blue gray.

 By: Bill : September 24th, 2015-07:16
Black is clearly black so my guess is people sometimes call the Blue as Gray. Thanks Bill

Bill, the color of the original blue dial

 By: 4Js : September 24th, 2015-15:47
Changes in various light. Blue to a blue grey, sometimes a blue black. My shot in the light over the water is really close to real life with the watch Best Joe

I had hard time trying to understand the size...

 By: amanico : September 23rd, 2015-22:46
Visually, the 5980 looks bigger, but it seems ( correct me if I am wrong ) that the size is the same. Maybe because the 5980 is thicker? Best, Nicolas

the difference you see on the screen...

 By: gensiulia : September 23rd, 2015-23:53
...or in AD window, i guess is not the very same on the wrist. my feeling is that, basically, is thicker but not fatter than the 5711. the size difference is .5mm

Nicolas, the 5711 is smaller and less thick

 By: 4Js : September 24th, 2015-15:50
The 5980 is the largest. But, they are very nice complements. Having the 5712 in a third metal and dial makes a nice trio. I came close, but passed Best Joe

Yes! i find very sexy the colored gold on a brown strap!

 By: gensiulia : September 23rd, 2015-23:46
I'm not a full gold kinda guy actually. very nice pair indeed! thanks for your opinion Joe. regards, chris

My friend it is always nice to

taste two breasts Love your typo Chrono tits you perfectly Yours D

yeah you know, you need to touch, to grab in your hands before a painfull choice.

 By: gensiulia : September 24th, 2015-00:42
is this topic suitable for the archive? ciao D, Chris

Go with what comes in mind first.

 By: gautamak : September 24th, 2015-06:43
Nice wrist shots to select from. My favourite is 5980 which is in spa now and will come out in first week. In my personal opinion on your wrist 5711 is giving classic sport but 5980 exhibits full sports watch love to know the final result. Cheers ! Gauta...

What are your other watches? Maybe that\'ll help in the decision. That being said, I like the 5711. So simple and elegant.

Choosing the right Nautilus

The Nautilus is very high on my wishlist. I think it might even be my next watch. But the biggest 'problem' on getting a Nautilus is choosing just one. ;-) The variation of styles in the Nautilus line is fascinating. You can wear a Nautilus everyday of yo... 

5980 for me. [nt]
