  • Catalogue Essay

    The sheer brazen outlandishness and suave awesomeness of the present Nautilus is mind boggling.

    What started out in the 1970s as Patek Philippe’s attempt to enter the world of luxury sports watches with the original Nautilus reference 3700 has morphed into an incredible jewelry piece that retains the laidback style of the Nautilus but takes it to new Himalayan heights of gravitas.

    Patek Philippe has always taken enormous pride in the gem-setting standard achieved in its workshops and the present watch exemplifies the attention to detail and overall superb mastery of the craft achieved by the company.

    The dial, bezel top part of the case as well as the bracelet are paved with 1675 brilliant cut diamonds for a total of 9.645Ct, the dial is also adorned with three baguette cut diamonds at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock.

    In overall very attractive condition this extremely rare timepiece of which only four examples are known is sure to be a conversation piece.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
