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.
