Sporty and nobel
Sporty yet regal, the Patek Philippe Nautilus distinctly stands out from other luxury timepieces. In 2006, Patek Philipps introduced a stylish revision of the classic Nautilus by Gérald Genta (Ref. 3700) that skilfully preserved the unique elements of the original model. All Nautilus models place an emphasis on simple legibility and a refined luxurious design. The Nautilus is equipped with waterproof capabilities up to 120 meters. Furthermore, the watch stands out with a strap that is comprised of high-grade materials including steel and leather.
The maritime influence has contributed largely to the unique components of the Nautilus. While the original model consisted of two basic elements – the bezel and the case – today's current Nautilus (Ref. 5711/1) is comprised of three parts: the bezel, the case body, as well as the case back. The case diameter measures 43 millimeters and is slighter larger than it's "Jumbo" predecessor from the 70s.
The Nautilus Ref. 5711/1 is powered by an exclusive movement that has been developed and manufactured by the luxurious watch manufacturer itself. The mechanic automatic movement caliber 324 SC can be admired through the transparent case back of the watch, which distinguishes the timepiece from the original Nautilus model. Furthermore, the green-blue hue of the dial fascinates when it catches the light. The placement of a sweephand has slightly changed the design of the contemporary Nautilus, but the combination of sporty elegance and puristic design will always remain the same.
