  • Catalogue Essay

    From its beginnings as Patek Phillipe’s first venture into the casual chic steel timepieces in 1976, the Nautilus has developed, in the past 40 years, into an incredibly successful collection ranging from time only to complications from perpetual and annual calendars to chronographs like the present reference 5980 chronograph.

    Based on Patek Philippe’s first inhouse automatic chronograph movement, the caliber CH28-520C beating within this watch gives the dial a disruptive and exuberant style with its large “bull’s eye”-type subsidiary chronograph counter.

    This attractive and masculine chronograph is preserved in excellent condition. It is replete with its original accessories such as the Certificate of Origin, sales tag, leather wallet, product literature, presentation box, outer Tiffany & Co. packaging and even a Tiffany & Co. bag in the famed New York retailer’s baby blue.

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.
