Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 on Leather with 5711 Steel Bracelet

Feb 06, 2020,04:48 AM

Dear All,

I currently own a Nautilus 5626 on leather which I would love to wear on Steel.

I found a steel bracelet coming from a 5711 in an auction house that I'm thinking of buying. 

The seller told me that he believes it will fit only that the sole difference is that the top link is thinner than the 5726 original steel bracelet.

Did anyone ever tried this or has an opinion on this?

Follow this thread but seems the answer is no.

Not compatible.

The leather strapped 5726A-001 is not compatible with the 5711 bracelet or any other bracelet including the 5726/1A.

It works on the 5712R with the 5711R

Surprisingly I saw it work on the 5712R with the 5711R bracelet! Did anyone actually tried with the 5726? Because Patek says it doesn't work but I'm not sure that's actually the truth when you put both 5726A and 5726/1A they are both exactly the same? ...  

I think this watch is also fake.

The ‘23’ on the date is oriented incorrectly.

I don't think it's fake

Look at the official pics on . It shows the 5164 with both orientations of the "23". So it appears it's just a dial variation. ...  

That watch is a fake so it doesn’t count.

Sorry, but the straps and bracelets on the Nautilus are not interchangeable.

Look at the minute markers at 25 and 35.

 By: RussW : February 7th, 2020-04:34
They are slightly larger than the other markers. On the fake watch you posted the markers are the same size. Photo is from Watchclub. ...  

2018 change.

 By: blownhippie : February 7th, 2020-11:19
Patek changed the dial a bit in 2018 I believe. The small dot version was the original that has now been replaced by the larger dot markers at 25 and 35. That being said, the bracelet on the 5711 will not fit a 5712R without altering the first link by phy...

The 5712 looks great in full rose gold mode. Maybe with a black/dark gray dial, ala 5980/1R. PS - I am secretly hoping for a full yellow gold variation, with an olive green dial. Imagine that! R

I have to agree not genuine based on 25 and 35 ma markers.

This is the same situation with 5158g Green rubber bracelet will not fit 5164. But photos disagree. But reality confirms.

The only one

 By: blownhippie : February 7th, 2020-11:22
That can be changed in the current collection with the blessing of Patek is the 5167A. The bracelet and strap are made to be interchangeable and you can actually order the bracelet if you have a strap version from Patek.

True Patek doesn't allow it...

Once again they say that officially it doesn't when it actually is perfectly fine


 By: blownhippie : February 7th, 2020-12:37
This is incorrect. Feel free to bring in your 5167A to any AD and request the bracelet. Retail price is $3720 and will include the bracelet, 2 spring bars and the 2 attachment links.

I just saw this now, but again, unless they changed this policy just recently (and I'd be surprised), it sounds *very* strange to me. I recall this topic came up over time with multiple ADs, and specifically about this reference (I have the /1A version).

 By: FabR : February 7th, 2020-16:52
The price sounds about right, but I'm even surprised that a 5167 bracelet may be on sale, unless of course you ask to replace it on your own /1A... Do you have the A or the /1A version?

I have neither.

 By: blownhippie : February 7th, 2020-16:59
I am work for Patek at an AD.

No double checking needed.

Done this multiple times with Patek’s full knowledge Cheers.

You had written regarding the 5167A, (not the 5726A which I own), "Feel free to bring in your 5167A to any AD and request the bracelet. Retail price is $3720 and will include the bracelet, 2 spring bars and the 2 attachment links." Do you happen to you if... 

Interesting observation on the minute markers

 By: JoeyLee : February 7th, 2020-07:50
Looking at previous posts the 5712 A and R did not have the larger minute markers but the Patek site does show the larger minute markers at 25 and 35. Could this be a recent dial change?

It is. [nt]
