We are glad to present our dear customers a Patek Philippe 5980R! This elegant piece, with a case size of 40.5mm, comes with a beautiful, brown-leather alligator strap that matches perfectly with the 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 subdial keeps track of the hours, minutes and seconds - a beautiful detail that provides the watch with a bold look are the red coloured numbers - and the date is displayed at the three o'clock position. The caseback is from sapphire-crystal and displays the heart (the movement) of this gorgeous watch. 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.
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.REF. 5980R The reference 5980R is a unique watch that could be worn both, as a sports watch and as a dress watch. The watch clearly distinguishes itself from other references in the Nautilus series but it still has the same characteristic looks. The brown-leather alligator strap, the 18k rose gold colour and the black-brown dial with embossed bars make this a very elegant piece. As mentioned above, the first Nautilus was introduced in 1976. This reference, that was introduced in 2006, belongs to the new generation of the Nautilus series.
