  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Patek Philippe Nautilus has cemented itself as horology’s preeminent sports watch icon, evolving over the years to incorporate highly coveted complications. Launched in 2014, the dual-time flyback chronograph ref. 5990/1A succeeded its venerable ref. 5980/1A predecessor.

    - Powered by the cal. CH 28-520 C FUS, it ingeniously integrates the dual-time functionality of the Aquanaut Travel Time ref. 5164/A with an automatic flyback chronograph. The case design mirrors the lines of the ref. 5980/A, with seamlessly integrated dual time zone pushers on the “ear” sides, providing an uncluttered view that complements the Nautilus’ iconic silhouette.

    - This particular example has the subtly elegant gray dial that was discontinued in 2022, superseded by a blue dial iteration. Arguably Patek Philippe’s most practical and sporty model to date, this Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph from circa 2016 is accompanied by its Certificate of Origin and setting pin.

  • 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.
