Patek Philippe Nautilus is a classic watch and a watch that is well known both among collectors and watch amateurs. The brand was started by Antoni Patek in 1839 in Geneva and Adrien Philippe joined him in 1845. Adrien Philippe was the inventor of the keyless winding mechanism, a very important invention that revolutionized watches. What made them stand out was the fact that the watch parts they used for their amazing watches were made in house. Another fact that has made them popular is that the watches made by them have some of the highest prices in worldwide auctions due to their prestige and high quality products. Some of their watches are sold at auctions even for one million dollars nowadays so owning one of their pieces is definitely a big investment.
The model Nautilus is a beautiful but simple watch when compared to their other models, especially the Grand Complications series. However, this mechanical self-winding movement watch with date is definitely a beauty to look at and also comes with a caliber in the CH 28 520 C series. The chronograph, the 60 minute and 12 hour mono-counter at 6 o’clock and the sweep seconds hand are only a few of the elements that make it such a desired watch. Those who buy this watch are very impressed with its simple but striking beauty that makes it a perfect watch for any occasion. Also, coming with such simple colors will make it an easy to add watch to any type of outfit, be it a colorful one or a more monochromatic one.
