Seeing a watch in the metal beats looking at photos only !

Glad that you like this iconic watch and happy that your friend owns one. Now that you are a big fan, what is your next move ? 😇

Well, for me it's just a picture queen. Underwhelming in the flesh, great under flash.

Just like with models... great on pictures but prudish in bed.

Haha 🤣 ! Do you ...

 
 By: GLau : September 1st, 2020-09:46
own one or have tried one in the metal ?

Yes, I've tried it on. All relevant iterations actually.

 
 By: Pour le Mérite : September 1st, 2020-10:02
None did anything for me except the 5740G for it's weight and the 5712 for it's design. Other than that it's all status. Execution didn't quite match the MSRP.

The white dial versions...

... are very convincing, maybe you give these a chance? Produced in much lower numbers as well. And discontinued.

White version is far more complex

 
 By: lascases : September 2nd, 2020-07:21
than the others. More depth to the dial. Silver-white contrast is also very special.

As said, I've handled all relevant models. Side by side.

 
 By: Pour le Mérite : September 2nd, 2020-08:22
I don't like them! Neither by design, nor by quality or by price! Jeez!

Different strokes for different folks 😄

Yup [nt]

yes

I wish you could find the beauty of 5711 5 years ago

Lettering looks very faint

 
 By: TheCollector1688 : August 31st, 2020-22:56
Is it me or does the lettering on this look faint? Real Nautilus?

Thought the same. [nt]

 
 By: Pretty Boy : August 31st, 2020-23:24

It is the lighting [nt]

Another picture with less light

Obviously this watch is a safe queen...too bad.

 
 By: ronhan : September 1st, 2020-02:45
Your friend should remove the plastics an WEAR that beauty!

Yep! ;-) [nt]

 
 By: FabR : September 1st, 2020-04:29

Seems ridiculous...

 
 By: lascases : September 2nd, 2020-01:31
... to keep a current production Nautilus in the safe and not wear it. It is mass produced and will never be a collectors item in the next 4 decades or so. Maybe in 50 years, but then still collectors will always prefer a 3700... Thus, these watches shoul... 

Glad you were able to see it in the metal. Even though my favorite 5711/1A is probably the white version, it's no surprise this beauty has find so much popularity among collectors!

 
 By: FabR : September 1st, 2020-04:29
Hope your friend decides to unwrap it and wear it, however, it's too bad that a lucky owner of this piece doesn't fully enjoy it! ;-) Cheers.

Wait...is that a screen protector on the watch!?!

 
 By: TheCollector1688 : September 1st, 2020-19:19
Looks like there is a film or something on the crystal face of the watch. I can see small bubbles where the screen protector is lifted off the screen. This is really going to extremes! Doesn’t the owner know that the sapphire crystal is practically scratc... 

Hmmm

Forget the 5711, I want to know more about you experience with “models being great on pictures but prudish in bed”!!!😊
