  • Catalogue Essay

    The Nautilus from the Patek Philippe collection is probably one of the most recognisable watch in today’s watch world. Launch in 2014, the dual-time chronograph reference 5990/1A replaced the long running reference 5980/1A and was very well received by the watch community.

    Fitted with the same dual-time complication as reference 5164/A Aquanaut Travel Time, Patek Philippe integrated this complication into this 5990/1A along with the automatic fly-back chronograph function. The design of the case feels very much similar to its predecessor with a slight tweak, Patek Philippe has smartly integrated the dual-time zones buttons to the side ‘ears’ that is unobstructive and complimenting well to the symmetry of the iconic design of the Nautilus.

    Discontinued earlier this year, reference 5990/1A left its mark as one of the coolest and sportiest Patek Philippe ever produced. Complete with all the original accessories, it is an absolutely worthy set to be added into any collection.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
