First Nautilus watches hit the market in 1976. Suring that time, luxury sports watches were expected to be thin and made out of gold, so this comparatively bulky timepiece made out of stainless steel came as a complete and total shock.

Patek Philippe was never one of the quiet watch manufactures and preferred to make waves and challenge the limits of what is expected out of the performance of the watch as well as its design. It is no surprise that the unusual nature of the Nautilus earned it its popularity.

Nautilus Collection of Patek Philippe watches features an unusual shape and robust, yet delicate design. The shape of the watch was inspired by the porthole window that can be found about any maritime vessel. Although the modern Nautilus collection had a few modifications, these carefully planned and subtly executed changes only enhanced the overall classic design.

The original Nautilus 3700/1 model is one of the most sought-after and highly collected Patek Philippe watch models fetching staggering amount of money at auction. But if you don’t have the time or the means to spend on a vintage Nautilus timepiece, we recommend you take a look at the modern collection.

These watches are designed out of only the highest quality materials with all the meticulous attention to detail that Patek Philippe gives each and every one of its timepieces. Today you can get a Nautilus watch completely set with diamonds (reference 5719/1). Yes, that includes the dial, the bracelet, and the case. If you desire a more toned down look but still would like to stay with gold, Nautilus is offered in rose and white gold.

However, if you are one of the purists that likes to stay as close to the original Nautilus as possible, we recommend the classic and modest stainless steel Nautilus 5711/1A-010. Its elegantly toned down stainless steel case secures with a comfortable link bracelet. The watch features a black and blue, easy to read dial with luminous index hour markers and hands. The timepiece is water resistant to 120 meter and has a date function.
