New Patek Philippe Nautilus

Jul 08, 2008
In 2008, Patek Philippe has created its legendary Nautilus watch offering the moon-phase and power reserve functions in a gem-set version. The timepiece radiates with magnificent baguette diamonds.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus, Ref. 5722G, features a 42mm case crafted in 18K white gold. The distinctive porthole-shaped bezel is paved with 32 baguette diamonds, with the total weight of 5.7 carats. The rich black-blue dial of the Nautilus watch finely accentuates the opulent beauty of the diamonds. The overall harmonious appeal is enhanced by the glossy navy blue crocodile strap.

The Patek Philippe Ref. 5722G Nautilus accommodates the 240 PS IRM C LU caliber. The self-winding movement has incorporated a Gyromax balance wheel and 22K-gold micro-rotor. The mechanism provides a highly accurate moon-phase display, a pointer-style date, and a power reserve indicator showing the status of the 48-hour power reserve.

The sapphire crystal case back allows true watch connoisseurs to admire the majestic finishing of the exclusive Patek Philippe caliber, revealing Cotes de Geneve, anglage and circular graining decoration. The Caliber 240 proudly displays the coveted Geneva Seal, implying the highest traditional quality corresponding to the strict standards set by Canton of Geneva.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus collection was born in 1976. The company wanted to introduce a watch of a powerful design and unique personality. The design of the watch was inspired by a porthole of maritime vessels. The first ever Nautilus watch was the Ref. 3700/1 with a steel case. In no time, the Patek Philippe Nautilus gained the status of a classic elegant watch with a sporty appeal. The original Nautilus represents one of the most longed-after watches among avid watch collectors.

New Patek Philippe Nautilus watches are casually elegant timepieces featuring subtle and thoroughly thought-over changes while maintaining the original spirit of the collection.
