  • Catalogue Essay

    An iconic timepiece, the Patek Philippe Nautilus has, since its launch in 1976, represented a debonair, suave and carefree lifestyle.

    It has in the past 45 years been offered in various sizes, dial variations, metals and complications. One of the latest iterations is the present reference 7018 which takes all the design cues that collectors have come to love about the Nautilus such as the porthole case, integrated metal bracelet and the immediately recognisable dial with embossed horizontal lines and adds an extra pinch of spice. The embossed lines are made to resemble a wave and are of different thickness, the dial is a beautiful gray opaline, grading to black at the periphery, the luminous hands and indexes are of the same shape and the bezel is set with 50 diamonds for a total of 0.753ct.

    The present reference 7018 in excellent overall condition and complete with box and certificate is an elegant and versatile timepiece.
