    • Catalogue Essay

      -Launched in 1976, the Nautilus today is more than just a popular sports timepiece - it is a cultural icon in itself and a cornerstone in Patek Philippe's catalog. Following the launch of the reference 3700/1, the model has re-invented itself in many iterations such as changing the dial colour or including complications.

      -By 2018, Patek Philippe had diversified its Nautilus line up to include a vast array of complications – from a simple date to a chronograph to an annual calendar. As such, it finally came time to introduce their signature complication - the perpetual calendar - in the Nautilus line, and at Baselworld Patek Philippe launched the 5740G. With a lustrous 18K white gold case and bracelet, the caliber 240 Q – Patek’s ultra-slim perpetual calendar movement stamped with the Patek Philippe seal – beats within so that the case itself remains a mere 8.42mm, which is even slimmer than the reference 5712.

      -Preserved in excellent condition with barely any signs of wear, the present watch is accompanied by its original accessories such as its Certificate of Origin, presentation box and outer packaging.

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.
