An iconic luxury sports replica watch by any measure, the Nautilus is 40 years old this year. Famously designed by Gerald Genta on a napkin, the Nautilus first came to market in 1976 as the “Jumbo” ref. 3700/1A. For the occasion Patek Philippe has created a pair of Nautilus wristwatches in precious metal that stick closely to the original style, but with some tweaks.
Size-wise it is identical to the ordinary ref. 5711 Patek Philippe Nautilus Replica Men Watches: sans crown, from one corner of the bezel to another, the watch is 40mm in diameter. Like all other platinum Patek Philippe watches, the ref. 5711/1P has a small diamond set into the bezel at six o’clock.
A disc of solid 18k yellow gold Patek Philippe Replica Watches, the dial is finished in dark blue with a striped, horizontal stamped guilloche that’s typical of the Nautilus. The baton hour markers are also 18k gold and set with baguette-cut diamonds; the total weight of all 12 diamonds is about 0.34 carats.
Measuring 49.25mm in diameter including the crown, or 44mm from corner to corner of the bezel, the ref. 5976/1G is essentially an enlarged version of the original Nautilus chronograph ref. 5980.
To accompany the larger case, the Replica Men Watches chronograph register at six o’clock has been proportionately enlarged, making the three elapsed time tracks easier to read. The outermost track counts the hours, then the minutes in the inner two tracks.
Patek Philippe Replica Men Watches unveiled the Nautilus – the Nautilus Ref. 5711/1P and the Nautilus Chronograph Ref. 5976/1G – two weeks ago. Most expected the anniversary to be a major occasion, but instead it was subdued while the response to the watches ranged from lukewarm to confused.
Sized exactly the same as the stainless steel Nautilus ref. 5711/1A Patek Philippe Replica Watches– which means it’s 40mm diagonally from bezel edge to edge – the anniversary edition is entirely platinum, case and bracelet.
A bright, metallic blue that is a recognisably different from the graduated grey-blue of the steel version, the dial on the anniversary model is attractive, even with the widely disliked commemorative lettering on the Swiss Patek Philippe Watches dial.Even the baguette diamond markers are subtle, being set on white gold mounts. On the wrist the diamonds aren’t especially obvious.
From the back the view is exactly the same as that on the steel Nautilus, with the same calibre 324 SC inside. Only the precious metal hallmarks on each corner of the back give the game away.While well made and finished, this is a fairly ordinary movement for a Copy Patek Philippe Watch this expensive, especially one meant to commemorate a significant event.
Despite everything, the platinum Nautilus is an easy watch to like.
In exceptionally crisp condition with the original case finish and clear hallmarks, both watches are paradoxically unique but similar. The Patek Philippe Replica Watches pair have custom features common to both, namely black indices and hands, as well as oversized repeater slides. These tweaks were made to improve dial legibility and usability of the repeater, a convenience for the original owner who was getting on in age.
The Patek Philippe Replica Men Watches dial is its most prominent feature. While classical in style, the dial has an unusual oversized subsidiary seconds, matched with hands and baton hour markers painted a matte black for maximum contrast against the silvered dial.
Tthe Patek Philippe Replica Diamond case is also constructed in an unusual manner, distinguished by elongated lugs. Not only is the repeater slide oversized, the original crown is also enlarged. In fact, the crown is 7mm in diameter, enormous compared to the 34mm diameter of the case.
Even the movement of the Best Patek Philippe Replica is special. While the ebauche, or movement blank, was likely produced by Victorin Piguet of Le Sentier, one of the greatest movement makers of the period, the bridge configuration is unique to this calibre, being completely different from similar movements in other watches.
