Unparalleled rarity captured in a design that has stood the test of time. "Jumbo" in size, "Mega" in demand.The Nautilus was Patek Philippe's venture into the realm of casual chic sport watches. However nothing casual about the specimen we have to offer. Not only is it executed in full 18K yellow gold, also the index of the dial is decorated with brilliant cut diamonds! Whereas the steel variant is an invitation to travel destinies, the present one is more likely to accompany your wrist while sipping a fancy cocktail at your holiday mansion. The gold and diamonds add so much flair, sophistication and suave cool to an already amazing watch, regardless of the metal or configuration.This important timepiece is offered in time-capsule condition, showing the perfect lines and angles of this mesmerising design. Furthermore it comes with a PP box, the extract of the archives (dating the watch back to 1984 and it's subsequent sale 2 years later), and the original paperwork! Long story short, this belongs in a museum.
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.
