Luxury in Steel: A History of the Patek Philippe Nautilus
Yet despite the high prices due to the case materials, even these Nautilus models were highly sought after and quickly sold out.
[Patek] Couldn’t pass up this gorgeous piece of horology the other day. Glad I could share it with you gents
I was at my dealer the other day and he told me he had a special watch he was saving for me. He pulled out this gorgeous Iced Patek Philippe Nautilus! I couldn’t believe my eyes! The way the curved crystal played with the light!
[Patek Philippe] Nautilus Annual Calendar
Today I would like to highlight my Patek Philippe Nautilus Reference 5726. This is the annual calendar version of the Nautilus. Having held a 5711, 5712, 5980R and a 5740P, I feel like the 5726 is as perfect of a modern nautilus as one can currently buy.
[Patek Philippe 5740] First Nautilus, went straight for the big one
But having watched the gray market prices steadily climb and then explode with the news of it being discontinued, I started looking at other models in the Nautilus range and fell in love with the 5740 after handling one in-person. I purchased it from a trusted reseller at an absurd markup over MSRP. Is it worth that price? Of course not, but it is a fantastic watch and as long as the market doesn't crash anytime soon I feel okay with the money being tied up in it.
[SOTC] My 3 watch collection.
Whereas the Edifice is a tiny bit more expensive so I would only wear it on the weekends. But the Holy Grail of the Collection: the Nautilus, is a watch that I would wear on very special occasions, for example a wedding, or a family member’s birthday party.
[Omega & GS] My Favorite Duo
This was the first Swiss watch that really 'spoke' to me, the horizontal lines paired with a sunburst effect and the unique applied indices really make this a design you don't see anywhere else except maybe the Patek Nautilus with similar horizontal lines but that's pretty much where the similarities end. The exhibition caseback display of the movement is also neat, though I honestly don't find myself peering at it that often.
[Question] Which popular watch can't you like no matter how hard you try?
The Patek Nautilus is without a doubt the most plain and boring of the holy Trinity steel sport watches.
And the auquanaut is somehow even more boring and plain.
Both objectively great watches though, but the design leaves much to be desired.
[Rolex, Omega, Journe, Patek, Oris, A.P] First post, thought I'd start at the finish...
Lee Michaels is the Patek AD in Baton Rouge, great people to work with. Even back in 2014 the blue Nautilus was pretty unobtainable, and I literally called every AD in the country and left my contact info. Most laughed at me, but Lee Michaels called me back a week later because their wait-listed buyer backed out when the watch showed up. For real “forever” pieces like the Nautilus, Daytona, Journe, and Speedy I want my name on the papers.
[Patek Philippe] Nautilus 5990 in Rose Gold
Just got our first Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph Reference 5990/1, rose gold version. The stunning sunburst blue dial features an embossed horizontal pattern and applied hour-markers. The baton-style hands are in rose gold with a luminescent coating. This new model combines three highly sought-after complications: a self-winding flyback chronograph, an easy-to-use Travel Time function (dual time-zone), and a date display, coupled with local time.
