The 5726 belongs to the great family of the Nautilus, one of the most iconic and well-known creations from Gerald Genta and surely the most emblematic sports watch of the Geneva-based company.
The development of the first Nautilus started in 1976 and took inspiration from the ship’s portholes. After various years, this timepiece became a classical and a vital piece of its history, but it’s time to say goodbye.
Different variations were made to the collection during its life, however, today the legendary reference 5726 is unfortunately, discontinued.
Despite the extremely clean and minimal dial, the intricate design drifts apart from the symmetrical lines of the “classical” Nautilus. Indeed, it shows all the necessary information which we would expect from an annual calendar watch: days of the week, months (at 12 o’ clock) and date (at 6).
The central seconds flow brushing the stick indexes in white gold which, like in all good sports watches, are coated with a fluorescent material which aids the visibility of the watch in poor light conditions.
However, what draws the attention in this specific timepiece is the wide lunar phase window with the 24-hour indicator.
