When talking about classic, yet elegant sporting watches built with luxury in mind, the Patek Nautilus collection fills the bill. The design of this timepiece is known for its strength and a personality that’s unchanging with the seasons, years or decades. Initially, the Patek Nautilus was inspired by the porthole of all maritime vessels.
Released to the public in 1976, the Nautilus collection has always been inimitable. The first model was the Ref. 3700/1 in steel. Created in Patek’s signature style of classic elegance, the original models are some, if not the, most sought after watches when they hit auction.
While Patek’s Nautilus collections offer a variety of impressive features, the one aspect of this timepiece that sets it apart from others is the shape. The unique porthole shaped face allows luxury watch fans to instantly distinguish the Nautilus from other classic watches.
Style: Sporty, casually elegant and classic.
Famous Wearers: Brad Pitt
