In the thin quality of the top of the line sports watch, the Patek Philippe Nautilus is as still the King. You could fill your day perusing pages of energetic exposition that contend the benefits of the watch with respect to others, yet there is something about the Nautilus that separates it from a less cerebral perspective. Unadulterated feel. Actually, when the group sat down not long ago and selected a solitary ‘vessel watch’, 66.6% of the group picked the Nautilus, while the other 33.3% were essentially off-base. The Nautilus is absolutely King in this domain.
Before we get excessively further into the Nautilus story, how about we right off the bat manage a few definitions. Indeed, this is a ‘games watch’, albeit clearly not a swap for your G-stun or Garmin GPS watch. It originates from a time when there were “dress watches” (ordinarily thin, traditional watches in gold cases) and more easygoing ‘games watches’, which were somewhat bigger and bolder. Be that as it may, for ‘sports’, think Country Club tasting gin as opposed to surfing the breaks.

Two goes up against the Nautilus Chronograph-the 5990 (left) and the 5980 (right)
The 2014 Nautilus remains consistent with Genta’s unique plan, with just a couple of definite contrasts. For instance, while the first 3700 had just an hour and moment hand, 2006 5711 included a general seconds hand and a bigger, thicker bezel. Notwithstanding being a games watch, the lines stay smooth, even on the chronograph which is the thickest of the range.
Nautilus Leather Strap
Contingent upon the model, the Nautilus goes ahead either a cowhide lash or wristband. For a games watch this way, we incline toward the wrist trinket, which is delightfully completed with a fine collapsing fasten. _KD13749 However, while we cherish the look of the arm ornament, it is one of only a handful couple of purposes of the watch that we’d get a kick out of the chance to see enhanced, as it doesn’t feel as shake strong as that offered on the Royal Oak. The exchange off is that it is a more slender, sleeker outline and one that effectively sneaks by most shirt-cuffs._KD13663
Patek Philippe CH 28-520 C FUS
As you’d anticipate from Patek Philippe, the scope of developments speak to both a masterful and specialized visit de drive. The first Nautilus utilized the Caliber 28-255C development, which depended on the Jaeger Le-Coultre Caliber 920. Nowadays Patek offers their own particular scope of developments, including the most up to date Caliber, the CH 28-520 C FUS appeared previously.
The completing is model on all development surfaces, all of which you can appreciate through the sapphire case back. The rotor is produced using 18k strong gold and is stamped with the Patek logo.
Patek Philippe Nautilus 5713/1G
Beginning with the time-just model, we have the Nautilus 5713, which is in actuality a white gold rendition of the well-known steel 5711 yet with 48 precious stones set into the bezel.
Sparkle splendid like a precious stone…
You can likewise observe over the excellence of the dial we secured before the slope is unobtrusive, yet one that appears to give the watch an alternate “face” contingent upon the light. Furthermore, this dark blue is THE famous Nautilus dial shading, despite the fact that various different choices have been made throughout the years. At Time+Tide we’re not an enormous enthusiast of precious stones on men’s watches, yet some are, which the reason the 5713 exists is.
Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726/1A
Next, we begin with the inconveniences and the Nautilus Annual Calendar Ref. 5726. Utilizing a marginally bigger case than its blinged-out precious stone sibling (40.5mm versus 40mm), the watch includes a large group of difficulties, yet on a wonderfully perfect and straightforward dial:
1. Yearly logbook
2. Moon stage
3. 24-hour pointer
Venturing through these thusly, a yearly timetable is essentially one that knows whether the multi-month has 28, 30 or 31 days and alters likewise. Cunning.
Patek Philippe 5980R Rose Gold
The Nautilus chronograph was presented in 2006 in both steel and gold variations in 2014, just the gold or steel-gold models stay in the range. This time with a dark brown dial, the flyback chronograph is overwhelmed by a solitary counter at 6 o’clock that presentations both an hour long counter (red hand) and a 12-hour counter (white hand). The rose gold case works wonderfully with the chocolate dark colored lash appeared previously.
What Makes the Nautilus Great?
For us, the Patek Philippe Nautilus is the best games watch of all as a result of the blend of its very particular style and the following level nature of the completing discovered wherever you look on the watch-the development, the dial, the wrist trinket, the case… everything is finished with the most elevated amount of value and care-as it ought to be at the cost. The minimum costly model is the steel 5711, which retails for $29,350, so you realize that we are discussing a value point well past even the storied names, for example, Jaeger Le-Coultre and Audemars Piguet, not to mention Rolex.
It is reasonable for call attention to that the style is like that of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, which came 4 years before the Nautilus and can be purchased today for a critical sum not as much as the Patek. You positively won’t commit an error with either watch, yet we basically favor the all the more polarizing outline of the Nautilus, feeling that it’s more unique. A few people simply don’t care for the Nautilus outline and never will-however that is fine by us.
They say that you should never meet your legends, however investing quality energy with the Nautilus extend has done nothing to dull the appreciation for Genta’s artful culmination.
