The design of the watch was inspired by the spirit of the new millenium; it has been refined and improved, yet it still has the lovely aesthetic characteristics that were once designed by the legendary Gerald Genta.The reference 5980R/1R-001 is a unique watch. It clearly distinguishes itself from other references in the Nautilus series but it remains loyal to its heritage. This Patek Philippe, with a case size of 40.5mm, has a beautiful, 18k rose-gold integrated bracelet on an 18k rose-gold case. This chronograph watch is a true piece of craftmanship, the essence of Patek Philippe's perfection. The beautiful dial color is black-brown with horizontal embossed bars and the applied hour markers are gold with a luminescent coating. The 'mono-counter' keeps track of the hours, minutes and seconds and the date is displayed at the three o'clock position. The sapphire case back will show you the sophisticated heart of this gorgeous piece. As mentioned above, the first Nautilus was introduced in 1976. This reference was introduced in 2006 and belongs to the new generation of the Nautilus series. Our example dates back to 2017 and comes as a full set.

Introduction

Patek Philippe NautilusPatek Philippe has always been a watch brand for the lucky few as they are the creator of the most exclusive timepieces in the world. They made mechanical masterpieces to fit the exquisite gentleman or elegant lady, mainly out of precious metal. But after the success of the Royal Oak from Audemars Piguet, designed by the famous Gerald Genta, Patek had to go overboard and create a steel sports watch of their own. The Nautilus, named after a Submariner, first saw light in 1976 and it was being advertised as a watch that worked equally well with a wet suit as with a dinner suit. Being the most expensive steel sports watch when it was launched, it was interesting to see how it would pan out. Another great success was added to Mr. Genta and Patek Philippe’s history. Eversince they made a whole bunch of variations in different materials, dial colour and layouts. All having in common that the shape of the case looks like a porthole with protruding ‘ears’ on each side of the case and with an eight-sided, curved bezel. Another cool feature can be found on the dial as all of them are strongly characterized by horizontal embossed bars.
