Patek Philippe Nautilus

REF : 5980/1A

Nautilus has established itself as a classic, elegant sports watch and the original reference is one of the most sought-after timepieces at auction. It is said the Nautilus was designed by Gerald Genta during a lunch session at Baselworld in the early 70s. The timepieces evoke the shape of the porthole on a vessel with horizontal embossed relief lines on the dials giving the wearer a sensation of catching a glimpse of the wavy sea through a porthole. With a wide variety of stainless steel or leather strap variations available, Nautilus is the epitome of the elegant sports watch.
