Description

The Nautilus collection is the sport watch by excellence since 1976. In this very year, Mr Gerald Genta designed it in a restaurant during the Basel fair. Patek Philippe was known for it’s round shaped case and classical watches, therefore, due to the high number of sport watches produced in the industry, Mr Genta decided to design a sport watch and took his inspiration in the Nautical arts and more specifically from a ship’s porthole. This design had an immediate success and is now an unquestionable collection in the Patek Philippe dynasty.

The width bezel gives a large vision on the dial as the horizon when watching through an porthole and the side lugs also called “ears” are inspired by the hinges on these windows. A simple but elegant design that helped Patek Philippe to touch a large public of watch passionates.

Years after years, the Nautilus collection’s success was colossal also due to the new versions released with a larger case or a sapphire case-back. It is considered as the must-to-have timepiece for man or woman’s lifestyle as it combines elegance, sporty and a timeless design.

 

The present reference Patek Philippe Nautilus 3712/1A was launched in 2005, becoming the first ever Nautilus to house the base calibre 240 with a micro-rotor. It is also a tribute to the original 3700, featuring a similar monobloc case with an integrated sapphire caseback.

The stainless steel case measures 42mm in diameter and 8mm in thickness, making it a sporty yet elegant timepiece.
The unusual asymmetric dial displays a sub-seconds counter at 4 o’clock, date and moonphase indications at 7 and a power reserve indicator between 9 and 11 o’clock. The lowest point of the power reserve is marked with 3 red dots, which means this is from the first series. The second series has 4 dots.

The lume-hands are classic Nautilus displaying the time pointing at the applied baton hour-markers.

Shown through the sapphire case back is the in-house self-winding calibre 240PS IRM C LU featuring a 22K solid gold micro rotor decorated with Geneva stripes, and powering the small seconds, calendar, moonphase and the 48-hr power reserve.

This reference was produced for only 1 year, making it a rare and highly-collectible timepiece.
