As the last independent family-owned Geneva watch manufacturer, Patek Philippe prides itself on its complete control of the watchmaking process. In order to fulfill its promise of providing highly accurate and well-made watches, every Patek Philippe timepiece is carefully crafted by hand. Patek Philippe Nautilus (Patek Philippe Nautilus) is the best among many beloved watches. It is one of the most iconic watches in the history of the brand.
The Patek Philippe Nautilus, which came out in 1976, is the epitome of elegance. In addition, it also showcases the exquisite craftsmanship and artistic skills of Patek Philippe. With its recognizable round octagonal bezel, this luxury sports watch has a distinctive but masculine appearance.Replica luxury watches
A glimpse into the rich history of the Patek Philippe NautilusSince the Patek Philippe Nautilus series was launched in 1976, it has become one of the most popular watches of the brand. Although it is not the first steel luxury sports watch (the position is held by Audemars Piguet Royal Oak), the first Nautilus (Nautilus Reference 3700) is hailed as the first most expensive steel sports watch. It has an octagonal shape and is housed in a 42mm stainless steel case.
The innovative design of Patek Philippe Nautilus was inspired by the porthole of a ship, designed by the same designer Gérald Genta who did the Royal Oak for Audemars Piguet. Inspired by Genta, one day when he was having dinner at a restaurant in the hotel. It is said that he completed the sketch of the watch in only five minutes. He hardly knew that his design would become today's iconic work.replica watches for sale
That's it; the first Patek Philippe Nautilus, Reference3700. It has an octagonal bezel and a dial with a horizontal groove pattern. It was powered by a slender self-winding movement 28-255 and had a water resistance of 120 meters, which was very important at the time.
Heroes in the Quartz CrisisThe name "Nautilus" comes from Captain Nemo's submarine, which has the same name as the French classic novel "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". Just like Captain Nemo's Nautilus, Patek Philippe's Nautilus also played an important role in overcoming the crisis. This time is the quartz crisis of the 1970s.replica Bremont KINGSMAN watches
When Seiko introduced the quartz movement in 1969, the luxury watch market almost collapsed. Imagine traditional watchmakers whose complex mechanical movements require a lot of time and resources to produce, competing with machines that mass-produce quartz movements in a much shorter time and sell them at a much cheaper price. For the mechanical watch industry, this is a disaster. Understandably, most companies decided to close.
But Patek Philippe is not. They decided not to go with the flow of other products to produce affordable watches, but decided to launch Nautilus as a high-end luxury watch at a very expensive price. Patek Philippe relied on its marketing route: "the most expensive steel watch", with the help of powerful Nautilus (Nautilus) changed the route.
