As watch enthusiasts wait with eager anticipation for newly released models to coincide with Watches and Wonders Geneva 2021, Patek Philippe have created excitement with new interpretations of one of their most revered timepieces, the Nautilus.
Today, four new faces join the collection, set to delight fans of the iconic watch which features a highly recognisable case, bezel and bracelet.
With the introduction of a brand-new olive-green shade, the Ref: 5711/1A-014 is a bold interpretation of the watch, long deemed an icon of sporting elegance. The self-winding timepiece is powered by the exceptional calibre 26‑330 S C, featuring its typical date in an aperture and sweep seconds hand. The olive-green finish of the dial offers a stark and exquisite contrast against the gold-applied hour markers with luminescent coating, all beautifully framed in a stainless-steel case with transparent sapphire-crystal case back. A watch of rare beauty, the timepiece is incredibly functional, water resistant to 120m.
The Ref: 5711/1300A-001 enhances the aesthetic of the olive-green dial even further via the introduction of 32 internally flawless Top Wesselton baguette-cut diamonds that complement the octagonal bezel beautifully. Framing the sunburst olive-green dial, the contrast is spectacular, resulting in a highly desirable exceptional timepiece.
For lovers of rose gold, Patek Philippe have introduced the remarkable Ref. 5990/1R-001 Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph, combining aesthetic majesty with incredible performance. With striking rose gold case, complemented with a blue sunburst dial, featuring an embossed horizontal pattern and applied hour-markers, the timepiece is a thing of beauty. Within its beating interior, the power of the watch is breath taking, featuring highly sought-after complications; a self-winding flyback chronograph, an easy-to-use Travel Time function with dual time-zone, and a date display, coupled with local time.
The Nautilus Haute Joaillerie, has been a rare jewel in the Patek Philippe collection and 2021 sees the arrival of the exquisite new rose gold version; the Ref: 7118/1450R-001. Entirely pavéd with diamonds in a snow setting on the case, bezel and bracelet, the dial of the timepiece features rows of stones in a subtle raised wave-pattern effect, synonymous with the Ladies’ Nautilus collection. The hand-finishing of the rare snow-setting technique is incredibly rare – a skill mastered by the Patek Philippe artisans. With the dimension of the case increasing from 33.6mm to 35.22mm from 10 o’clock to 4 o’clock, the watch is a work of art – a truly exceptional piece.
Fans of the Nautilus will be delighted with the arrival of re-imagined designs. Please get in touch with our expert Watch Department to find out more about these new interpretations of casual elegance.
