Patek Philippe Nautilus, the world's most coveted sports watch
From its launch in 1976, the Patek Philippe Nautilus was touted as one of the most expensive sports watches in the world. Today, this reputation is more relevant than ever, as collectors everywhere are raving about this iconic watch (especially the vintage models).
The Nautilus watch turned the watch industry on its head when it was created. Patek Philippe abandoned the traditional codes that had made its reputation to create a sporty steel model, a first for the brand.
Since then, the design of this iconic diver's watch has remained almost unchanged due to its phenomenal success: octagonal bezel with softened angles (the main characteristic of the collection), large case (42 mm) inspired by a ship's porthole, dial with embossed decorations, luminous hour markers, hour and second hands covered with luminescent blades, etc.
Diving watches with exceptional performance
The Nautilus Patek Philippe collection comes in a wide range of models for men and women. Steel, rose gold, white gold, two-tone versions (mixing steel and gold), etc. The variations meet the different requirements of the model's followers.
Among the flagship models is the reference 5060, a gold wristwatch with a leather strap which, a few years later, served as the model for the Aquanaut, the second sports watch from the Geneva manufacture. The Nautilus, referenced 3712/1A, equipped with a date display, power reserve indicator and moon phase, is currently the most sought-after model among collectors.
