Exotic – Rare – And Absolutely Breathtaking! Super Exclusive Nautilus Chronograph from Patek Philippe.
A powerful & striking watch – will definitely draw attention & makes for a great conversation piece.
The Nautilus is the seminal luxury sports watch, which Patek Philippe debuted in the 1970s to immediate success. To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Nautilus
in 2006, Patek introduced this reference 5980 Nautilus chronograph. It’s a heck of a nice watch, and our watch is Unworn.
The Nautilus case is immediately recognizable from its rounded squarish shaped bezel. The bracelet is integral to the case. Dimensions are 41.5mm wide by 12.6mm thick. Being a sports watch, and with the name Nautilus, one could conclude that the case offers excellent water resistance… and it does, down to 120 meters. The case back features a sapphire crystal to view the automatic Patek Philippe movement. The front crystal is also sapphire. The chronograph pushers are semi integrated into the case side, next to the “shoulders” that protect the crown.
If you have never personally examined a Nautilus, you are missing one of the best finished watches ever, from any manufacturer. Featuring alternately brushed and polished steel surfaces, most case parts are also beveled to eliminate sharp edges. It’s unusual that a watch becomes famous for its case, but perfectly understandable when you examine, own and appreciate a Nautilus.
