sorry for asking again your opinions on so short period, but I think there are valuable opinions here.

I am torn between two options this week. Because I've little knowledge about Pateks, I kindly ask your opinions what to choose if were you:

op.1 : Patek Nautilus 5712/1A (SS) + AP Scuba la Boutique orange , OR

op.2 : Patek Nautilus 5980/1A (SS)

I'm not sure which one is more sought after, since my ignorance on the matter. Each option has almost same total cost for me.

Just for info, pic's of watches

Option1: Patek 5712/1A (pic from Internet) + AP Scuba (actual watch)



Option2: Patek 5980/1A (actual watch)


best regards and thank you so much in advance

The "stealth" chrono is killer. The 5712 dial is too busy for me

Good luck

The 5980/1A is amazing in person. The other two are cool as well, but the 5980/1A is something special IMO.

and difficult to read.

If yes, then IMHO option 1 because as people have said you are getting two great watches for the price. But if it is purely on passion, option 2 as the 5980 is killer. Either way you have a sweet dilema. Good luck!
