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 is 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 model is the very coveted “5976/1G-001”, a limited edition of 1300 pieces that has been released to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the launch of this iconic collection, the case diameter is of 44mm, a very first for the entire collection and it is the only one made in with a full white gold bracelet.   The night blue dial with the horizontal Nautilus embossing has twelve baguette diamonds that are displayed as hour markers and at 6 o’clock you have the anniversary inscription • 40 – 1976-2016 •
