Presented during Baselworld 2014 because we mentioned it here, but an icon within the Nautilus collection in only a couple of years, the Patek Philippe 5990 size replica watches Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph ref. 5990/1A brings the best in functionality and design from the legendary manufacture from Geneva. The most recent complication within the Nautilus line is the best travel companion as a result of its sophisticated Travel Time function which suggests the time in two different time zones in one glance. Furthermore, this Patek combines the functionality of a 60-minute chronograph and a date indicator. The coveted Nautilus chronograph has been enriched with the useful Travel Time function as reflected in its name Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph Ref. 5990/1A.

Equipped with a stainless steel case measuring 40.5 millimeters in diameter, the Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph ref. 5990 features a black gradated dial –with colour hues varying anywhere between an actual grey and a charcoal gray. The dial, featuring all the design cues of the iconic Nautilus line, includes a 60-minute chrono register at 6 o’clock, dual time zone indicating’local’ and’home’ time together with day/night apertures –whitened for the day and dark blue to night– at 3 and 9 o’clock, date index for the local time at 12 o’clock and an second time zone for the’neighborhood’ travel period. The chronograph moments are indicated by the fundamental sweeping seconds hand. The pictures below, clearly portray how the dial varies in hue based on the light conditions.

The correctly display a second time zone, the Patek Philippe 5990 rose gold replica watches Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph ref. 5990/1A has two hour hands on the exact same axis. The lower one is skeletonized, and the top one fits the fashion of the minute hand. The skeleton hand shows home time whereas the solid hour hand indicates local time. In the home, where the two instances are equal, both palms are superposed. When the owner goes to another time zone, the hour for’local’ period –travel time– can be adjusted in one-hour steps with all the pushers on the left caseband. On eastbound trips toward sunlight, the local-time hand must be corrected counterclockwise and incremented in the opposite direction when traveling westbound. The skeleton hour is not influenced by these kinds of corrections and continues to display’home time’.

The Crown, Pushers & Date Corrector
5990/1A is fitted with 2 sets of pushers on both sides of the caseband and a screw-down crown which makes it water resistant to a depth of 120 meters. While the first pair of pushers located on the ideal side of this case –adjacent to the crown, trigger and reset the chronograph function, the next pair of pushers on the abandoned caseband function the traveling time performance.

The Bracelet
The Patek Philippe 5990 waiting list fake watch Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph ref. 5990/1A is fitted using the identical sort of stainless steel bracelet as other Nautilus references, but slightly thinner. While from a design perspective we believe the expression of the necklace is perfect and a true icon, its construction remains somewhat light. Regardless, the bracelet is exquisitely finished with satin brushed outer links and thoroughly polished center links comprising the Nautilus fold-over clasp with safety lock.

The Movement
The Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph ref. 5990/1A is powered with the Patek Philippe automatic calibre CH 28-520 C FUS composed of 370 components, 34 jewels, Gyromax balance and which provides an energy reserve of 55 hours when fully wound, while hammering at a frequency of 28,800 vph. The calibre is beautifully finished with all the classical Patek touches and completely visible via the screen case back. Although this watch includes complications already found in additional Patek Philippe 5990 tiffany clone watches timepieces, the way they are combined at the Travel Time Chronograph is a premiere. It called for the development of the new caliber CH 28-520 C FUS motion in which the chronograph mechanism, a more conventional column wheel design with an innovative disk clutch, is supplemented using the Travel Time mechanism. This inventive device dates back to a patent awarded to Patek Philippe 5990 retail replica in 1959. It not only facilitates the bidirectional adjustment of local time in one-hour increments, but is also totally isolated from the going train when time-zone configurations are changed. This prevents adverse effects on the amplitude of this equilibrium and the speed precision of the watch.

On the Wrist & Pricing
On the wrist, the watch conveys accurate to its dimensions and with magnificent wrist existence. World travelers be ready to bring this unique timepiece to your own collections as we’re convinced that you will enjoy having this fresh Nautilus on your wrists. The unique colour of its own dial, which makes this watch very easy to match with just about any outfit.

 

This one of a kind unique Patek Philippe 5719/1G Nautilus white gold diamond paved replica watches are something very unique. This unusual Patek Philippe Nautilus watch is covered in diamonds. The whole dial, bezel, and bracelet come in 18K white gold with diamonds which were placed in the mill. This tasty and decadent offering is only available for an exceptional few who will delight in its wearing. The case remains wrapped in protective plastic. This Nautilus watch comes with original Patek Philippe nautilus quartz movement 5719/1g-001 replica watch newspapers, box, and a Raymond Lee Jewelers warranty card.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 in stainless steel, is among the most iconic Nautilus models because it was initially published as ref. 3712/1A in 2005 and made for less than a year. Fitted with a date indicator, moon phases and a power reserve indicator, this mention is simply awesome. The Nautilus ref. 5712 remains true to the design cues of the first Nautilus ref. 3712. The Patek Philippe 5712 tiffany replica watches Nautilus ref. 5712 is available in 18K white gold and 18K rose gold on crocodile strap and in stainless steel with matching stainless steel bracelet like the one we have here. The Nautilus line was initially found in 1976 and it still looks as sharp and amazing because it did back then. The Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 is fitted using a 40 millimeter situation such as the Nautilus ref. 5711, an instance that is only 0.5 mm bigger than that on the Nautilus Chrono ref. 5980 we’ve showcased here and here. On this hands-on review, we’ll also explain the differences between this reference and its predecessor.

The Dial
The Patek Philippe 5712 prezzo replica watches Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 in stainless steel is fitted with a stunning black-blue dial with an extremely unique colour. Its siblings in 18K rose gold and 18K white gold, are outfitted using a slate gray dial that is also gorgeous but not as strikingly beautiful as the one with this stainless steel model. The same as on all other Nautilus versions, the dial includes the horizontally embossed Nautilus pattern accentuated with ten employed luminous hour mark in 18K white gold.

While there is a lot going on on this dial, the design remains relatively uncluttered and quite nice. The design contains a power reserve indicator at 10 o’clock, a snailed date indicator with moon periods between 6 and 9 o’clock along with a running seconds subdial at 4 o’clock –that the latter is a superb feature which aids the wearer realize if the watch is running or not.

Other gaps between the Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 3712 rose gold fake watch and its successor the Nautilus ref. 5712 include: a two-piece case on the earlier vs. a three-piece event arrangement on the latter, a beefier screw-down crown on the latter, a far more curved case about the latter and much more square-shaped center links on the bracelet of this ref. 5712.

The Bracelet
The Patek Philippe 5712/1a-001 prix replica Nautilus ref. ref. 5712/1A-001 in stainless steel is fitted using the exact same sort of stainless steel bracelet as other Nautilus references, but marginally stronger. While from a style standpoint we believe the expression of the bracelet is flawless and a true icon, its construction is still somewhat light compared to a Rolex or Audemars Piguet necklace. Regardless, the bracelet is finished with satin brushed outer links and thoroughly polished center links comprising the Nautilus fold-over clasp with safety lock.

The Movement
The Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5712/1A-001 is powered with the Patek Philippe 5712 forum clone watches automatic calibre 240 PS IRM C LU –where the acronym implies Petite Seconde, Indicateur de Réserve p Marche, Calendrier and Phases de Lune– with off-centered 22K gold mini-rotor and written of 265 parts, 29 jewels, Gyromax balance and which offers a power reserve of 48 hours when fully wound, while beating at a frequency of 21,600 vph –3 Hz. The calibre is superbly finished with the classical Patek touches and fully visible via the display case back.

On the Wrist & Pricing
On the wrist, the watch wears true to its dimensions and with stunning wrist existence –in the end of the day this is a’Nautilus’, so what else could one expect, right? The exceptional color of its own dial, which makes this watch very easy to wear with just about any outfit and its dial colour is as close as it gets to this on the iconic Nautilus ref. 3700.

The assumption of my overview of the famed Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711″Blue” watch (reference 5711/1A-010) focuses on a single easy question:”Why is this steel sports lifestyle view, together with all its love handles, persistently in high demand?” To illustrate my point, before the publication of this review, Patek Philippe decided to raise the purchase price of this watch by 20%. Though I’ve always held a wonderful respect for your Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 retail replica watches , I’ve never had a specific desire to own one. Furthermore, I am a fan of watches on tapering bracelets in addition to true, resilient movements. In certain sense, the 2 watches are just two cats in precisely the exact same litter, together with Audemars Piguet picking the feisty kitty and Patek Philippe obtaining the smooth-haired young one. You can not definitively say that one is better than another –although I am sure most, if not all, would concur that Patek Philippe gets the superior movement.

Given the low-profile presence of the Nautilus on the wrist, however, it has never been my cup of tea. I have a tendency to enjoy slightly more assertive layouts a little more, and the negative flanks of the Nautilus never really grew on me. With that said, I was quite impressed with my last hands-on experience using a 5711-style Nautilus, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1P rose gold replica watches , the 20th anniversary strong platinum edition with diamond hour markers. This version, on the contrary, is a steel watch that (previously ) sells at just under $25,000 USD, but is often found for much higher prices, and of course that the waitlist. It’s more difficult to get than the usual ceramic Daytona, and nobody is really quite able to figure out why. In any event, the 5711 in blue is a hot luxury commodity, so even pre-owned versions are easily able to sell at retail cost.

Could this be a part of this”Genta result” Is the magic of Gerald Genta’s designs fueling this demand for this high-end timepiece beyond its anticipated lifespan? The overdue watch designer is probably more popular now than during his life, although I don’t think that I’ve cracked the code of what makes most of his designs so interesting, but I really do think that this Nautilus assisted me begin putting the bits together. 1 thing is for sure–the famed standing of these designs wouldn’t be possible without Patek Philippe nautilus 5711 blue dial fake watch being a quality watchmaker.

I feel that one way to love the real talent of Gerald Genta is to see him as a master bracelet designer. He appeared to understand how to blend an elegant and legible dial with the ideal bracelet. At the time Genta became involved in design, merchandise design for watches was just as significant as product design of, for instance, cars. Everybody had them and used them, so because of the vast array of these things, people were really interested in unique designs. Thus, Genta was designing something that could be equally worn and seen by everybody. In this case, the individuals wearing the watches were the rich elite that comprised Patek Philippe’s consumer foundation in the 1970s, and it’s the exact same demographic, albeit in larger numbers, that still wear Patek Philippe nautilus 5711 prix replica watches today.

My judgment is that the Patek Philippe Nautilus is an excellent example of a men’s bracelet jewelry which just so happens to have a watch attached to it. The steel construction of this bracelet and case prevents it from being overly pretentious as well. Not only does a very respected watchmaker provide the layout the finishing and construction it deserves, but in addition, it equips the watch with the finest non-complicated mechanical movements. Contrary to Rolex, the movement isn’t hidden behind a good caseback.

The motion is a fine example of what you should look for in a simple yet high-end sports watch. What makes the grade 324 S C striking beyond its own high level of ending is its slim profile. The motion is merely 3.3mm thick, and in all, the Nautilus keeps a water resistance of 120m despite being only 8.3mm thick. The automated rotor is in solid 21k gold, which actually means it weighs enough to keep the winding efficiency high. I would say performance is likely on level or within a respectable margin of Rolex’s”Superlative Chronometers.” Finishing, though, is a different story–Patek Philippe nautilus 5711 listenpreis clone watch lavishes the surfaces together with Cotes de Geneve stripes and small, tasteful sections of perlage, with the latter being my favorite element of this motion.

 

A number of years back, Patek Philippe nautilus yupoo replica watches introduced a new Ref. 5980/1A with a white dial (such as laymen: that is the Nautilus Chronograph). We at Monochrome Watches were somewhat surprised to discover, at Baselworld 2014, that Patek had already discontinued the steel 5980/1A version and replaced it with a steel Nautilus Chronograph with another time zone, like the one in the Aquanaut Travel Time Ref. 5164.

Since we’re talking about Patek here, productions numbers are somewhat low, and this reference is currently a very rare bird which we anticipate to become quite collectible. Even though the additional steel 5980/1A models are not as uncommon (but super-rare in comparison to a Rolex Submariner, for instance), we would not be surprised to see their prices rise today that the requirement can’t be fulfilled at Patek boutiques but only on the secondary market. But now, let us take a look at the version that combined the family 2014, whose additional second-time-zone function works exactly like the one in the aforementioned Patek Philippe nautilus perpetual imitation watch Aquanaut Travel Time, introduced in 2011 (see here).

On the dial, we see that the chronograph register at 6 o’clock, and, very similar to that about the Aquanaut Travel Time, it sports a pointer-date, positioned on the upper part of the dial. The date indication is connected to the local time, and that’s your travel destination. When traveling, it can be adjusted both backward and forward, to follow the date of the time zone where you are. On the right and left on the dial are two small apertures, which signify day and night in both the local time zone along with also the home time zone. The chronograph pushers — to begin, stop and reset to zero — are located on the left-hand side of this case, just like on the Chronograph Ref. 5980/1A. 5990/1A has only one 60-minute counter. While you won’t have the ability to quantify how long intercontinental flight took anymore, the altered subdial is cleaner and easier to read. With the additional pointer-date enroll, that is a good thing.

On the left-hand of this case are just two pushers for altering the local time zone when you’re traveling. Design-wise, Patek Philippe nautilus iced out replica watches did very well here, because these pushers look like the typical”ears” of the case. But, adding them pressured Patek to change the model’s typical two-part case for a more customary three-part case. Even though the whole case construction has shifted, the diameter remains 40.5 mm and the case is still water-resistant to 120 meters. Also the total case thickness is not much greater (the official information is not supplied ) than the 5980’s depth of 12.6 mm. When we watched the first images, we”feared” the watch would be too thick and too busy on the dial. After trying it on the wrist, then we are convinced that our fears were groundless.

Our conclusion: With regards to size and comfort, the 5990/1A is more or less equal to this 5980/1A. However, in terms of operation, the 5990/1A is superior to the older 5980/1A and we believe that this is precisely the kind of watch that many of Patek’s clients — using their daily business-travel life — are searching for.

The Nautilus layout by Patek Philippe 7018/1a-001 replica watches have been based upon the bull’s eye contour of a ship’s windows. This stainless steel timepiece captivates by exceptional shapes plus also a sporty yet elegant character. Efficency in technical terms as well as a timeless appearance certainly rank among the vital characteristics of the Nautilus collection. This model is determined to increase asscociations of the space and vastness of the sea. The delicate dial is fitted to a matching, bold bezel with a diamond-setting. Even though it supplies all of the prominent Nautilus attributes the model’s most efficient enhancement remains the time itself. To provide a hint to the cautious gent: this view version surely qualifies as a great gift.

First introduced in 1976, the Patek Philippe Nautilus set made a name for itself fast from the world of high-end watches. It features a strong, intimidating layout paired with flawless functionality. The Patek Philippe nautilus movement 7014 replica watches come in an impressive instance of either stainless steel or precious metals, for example rose gold and yellow gold. The Nautilus showcases a strong design paired with a passion for quality. While trendy, the Nautilus is still a nod to calculated and careful craftsmanship which keeps Patek Philippe 7014/1r-001 fake watch ‘s original spirit.

 

Gold is thought of as the colour of wealth, ability, and utmost luxury. The hue is often associated with lavish lifestyles of the strangely wealthy, while it’s painted on a ring, sewn on a dress, or perhaps plated over a toilet bowl. Gold is such a powerful and enigmatic hue that innumerable luxury brands have made use of it and incorporated it into their most recent products. For the 40th anniversary of their famous Nautilus version, Patek Philippe 7010/1g-001 replica watches painted their famous timepiece to gold, bringing forth a fantastic tribute collection.

Patek Philippine introduced their 40th-anniversary Nautilus tribute collection back in 2016 during the famous watch honest, Baselworld. The new line, particularly its 7010/1R-011 version, was a standout among other aggressive timepieces that also debuted at the stated event. The gilded timepiece prices $42,370, enough to cover all the luxurious gold it features.

Experts
The Nautilus 7010/1R-011 model is about gold! 18 karats of handsome rose gold make this up one-of-a-kind luxurious timepiece which shimmers all throughout. The watch also has the version’s famous round octagonal shape that made a huge mark in the realm of haute horology over four decades ago. Sleek and simple, the timepieces were perfectly reinvented as gold watches to appeal to rich contemporary tastes. An additional plus is that the 46 finely-cut diamonds that sparkle on the watch’s bezel–a great crowning glory for a classic.

Disadvantages
The phrase”too much” has a negative connotation, even if talking about gold. The watch risks making the proprietor appear tacky and unrefined, and it might possibly even tarnish in some unwanted occasions. It was beautiful when the case and bracelet strap were gilded, but with the hands and numerals on the dial gold-plated also makes it a bit of an overkill.

Any discerning eye fan would know that the race to construct the first ever automatic chronograph from the late 1960s was one of the seconds that changed the picture of how we specify sports watches today. It’s a subject of much debate and great controversy regarding who came first. Similar to Formula One racing, the sport that became synonymous with automatic chronographs, competition is stiff — and winning is all. This is where qualifying in pole position, and passing the checkered flag first means basking in the glory of winning. But, any discerning race enthusiast would also know that sometimes you do not have to come first to win the championship…

Put aside your watch nerd hat for a moment, and also don the running helmet of one of Formula One’s greatest. Let us take a trip down memory lane. It is the season where the more sophisticated V10 Engine from Renault, pushed by Williams driver Nigel Mansell, proves to be a serious challenger to the elderly V12 Honda that’s utilized by the McLaren team for which Senna drives. It is also the year when most of races will count towards the tournament, to which finish consistency and dependability are preferred. But despite all, Senna is giving his all — not winning most of the races, but always finishing with things.

In the long run, the tournament came to the very final race in Suzuka. Although the Renault was more advanced in every aspect, the tech was still in its infancy. Much the way babies need to go through teething, it was experiencing its own growing pains. Mansell needed the win in the last race in Suzuka, as Senna had the stage edge; in the finish the Renault broke , allowing Senna to flee to the checkered flag and win the championship. Senna was still crowned winner against all odds, but he didn’t finish first in most of the races, and even gave the win away to his teammate in the very last race.

The exact same can be stated with all the Patek Philippe 5980 rose gold retail replica watches . It wasn’t the first automatic chronograph ever created, nor was it the very first bit of the late Gerald Genta. Neither was it that the most complicated chronograph, nor the most advanced. And every single time I look at it, I can’t help but grin. There is a certain aura to it that I find difficult to capture in words. But when I was given the rare opportunity to reassess and picture this horological marvel, I trembled in fear. A bit that I yearned for was now on my wrist, awaiting a complete review here on Monochrome. I said to myself…”Here is the stuff of legends, but do not disappoint!” Adopting the mentality of Senna (although I honestly can simply pray to emulate the man he was), I pushed , against all odds… I keep…

The 5980 Nautilus remains by definition, a Patek Philippe 5980/1ar prix fake watch, even though a few connoisseurs would assert that the Nautilus line is not a”real” Patek. From the minute you see it, to the moment you hold it, to the minute you wear it on your wrist, then you expect time will stop, and that means you can endlessly love the greatness of the watch. The 5980 is gorgeous in every respect!

The design of the 5980 was to make sure that the Nautilus lineage stayed intact. Even with the demand for chronograph pushers in the 2 and 4 o’clock place, the people from Patek made sure that wouldn’t alienate the age-old classic look that is the Nautilus. Foregoing the traditional chronograph round pushers we view from most chronographs, they utilized two distinctively constructed horizontal pusher on each side of the proper’ear’. This essentially made the pushers barely noticeable when looking on the time, a definite high point in making sure no extreme aesthetic changes were introduced, which the initial design was maintained.

FEATURES
Evidently, the 5980 is exactly the same classic Nautilus we all love with the simple addition of a chronograph function. Unlike most manufacturers using the triple sub-dial approach to allow reading of both actual time and stop watch elapse period, the 5980 Nautilus went with a slightly more minimalistic approach via the usage of one (but larger) sub-dial visible above the 6 o’clock marker.This sub-dial is also a co-axial chrono counterclockwise, which permits the wearer to keep track of the minute (note that it is a 30 minute counter) and hour without the need for any additional sub-dial. This also allows the bit to keep the cleaner and more symmetrical appearance that we came to identify with the first Nautilus.

Flip the piece over and you get a glimpse of its own magnificent in-house motion, with its translucent sapphire crystal back. This might appear odd at first, but you might be forgetting that the movement in the 5980 was one of the company’s top points in releasing this sporting legend (more about the movement later). It would be a pity if it didn’t have a display case back, and moreover, for a business to unveil its recently constructed automatic chronograph, it’s just natural to do so.

With one look at the dial, immediately you’ll notice the gradation from dark blue in the center to black at the periphery (at least for the blue variant ). This is surely a distinct look that was practically carried over from the first Nautilus line. It also has a flat embossed pattern that produces this 3 dimensional effect in lieu of this patisserie we find in a different iconic luxury sports piece. There are nine rather than twelve index markers in white gold and coated with luminous coating. This leaves space for the big co-axial chronograph subdial to fit directly over the 6 o’clock mark. There’s also the date aperture at the 3 o’clock much like the first Nautilus. The dial in itself is in every way as beautiful as it could be, everything from the gradated color scheme, to the baton hour markers are designed to create a watch connoisseur’s heart swoon. It is in essence, the face of this piece, and one that is to be gazed upon by its wearer for years to come.

CASE / BRACELET

The design of the situation or perhaps the built-factor needs no introduction. The iconic semi-octagonal or semi-circular or whatever tickles your fancy has always been a part of the Nautilus identity. Its transition away from the normal circular dial of most Pateks, is exactly what made it among the most revolutionary timepieces ever created. It’s obviously modeled together with a satin-finished H-link bracelet with polished links that are central. The newer Nautilus however is composed of a three-piece case design (back, caseband, bezel), somewhat different from the initial two-piece case design. Although, I am no engineer, I am drawn to assume that a three-piece case layout is much easier to produce than the usual one. This again, has always been pondered upon by vintage Patek collectors, such that pricing of the original has always been considerably higher than the 2006 versions.

The situation diameter measures 44mm (including the’ears’), which is really just 2mm larger than the ref. 5711. 5980 measures 12.6mm in height, it feels more hefty and thicker than other Nautilus versions. We must keep in mind, however, that the Nautilus has always been praised for its thin case, so the 5980 is a different story entirely. However in my experience, the heftier situation is complemented by its slightly larger case diameter: in general it wears a bit bigger, but not did it feel like those oversized pieces we see in the industry today. It simply sits there comfortably, ticking the time away, and if it even could become an annoyance, a fast glance would easily release the tension and put a smile on one’s face.

MOVEMENT
Inside the 5980 is a movement fully crafted in house by Patek: the new Caliber CH 28-520 which sports a giant 21k gold core rotor that drains the motion, a Breguet balance spring, and a four-arm Gyromax balance that beats at 28,800 oscillations per hour. The chronograph functions just how it was intended to, begin stop at 2 o’clock, and hand reset and flyback in 4. The date however requires a bit of a push pin for quick correction, not exactly a huge deal, but perhaps something to improve on. It is nonetheless one of the most refined and sophisticated sports chronographs available on the marketplace.

WRAP-UP
The Nautilus 5980 or as I prefer to call it now, the Jumbo Chronograph, is by and large, one of the greatest sports chronographs… wait, scratch that… among the best sports bits that I ever watched to date. It just hits the sweet spot in every manner possible. It is not just THE ideal piece (writer’s nitpicking disclaimer), but given the selection of this, over the 5711 or the 5712 or perhaps its biggest competition, I think I know which one to pick. The world of sport chronographs is a crazy one partly because of its connection to motor racing, where we locate the McQueens, the Sifferts, or even the Newmans of older. Compared to such icons, the Jumbo Chronograph is still in its infancy. But then again, it is a piece which requires no racing icon since it can stand on its own, and to this date it remains so.

When Baselworld 2018 opened its doors, this new watch came as a surprise. We could have anticipated this grand complication to coincide with the 40th anniversary of this renowned model — that happened two decades back, with the presentation of this Platinum 3-hand 5711/1P and the White Gold Chronograph 5976/1G. Instead, Patek chose to wait for two years to introduce the first grand complication at the Nautilus collection. Following the chronograph, the annual calendar or the travel time, here’s the Patek Philippe 5740 prezzo replica watches Nautilus Perpetual Calendar 5740G.

In our publications, here in MONOCHROME, the genuine essence of the Nautilus is a time-only watch, with a predominant focus on the style, the design, and its own unique mixture of elegant luxury and sportiness. The Nautilus was born with just two hands and a date (together with the Ref. 3700, designed in 1976 by the late Gerald Genta) and the very coveted version in the group is its direct descendant, the 3-hander Ref. 5711. Therefore, the presence of other complications beyond the date is questionable. But this never prevented Patek adding something more to the mixture.

In 2006, when the set was entirely revamped for its 30th anniversary of the version , we observed the rise of complicated movements. While the time-and-date version (now Ref. 5711) remained the star of the series, Patek continued with the 5712, as well as a brand new model with an automatic chronograph, the 5980. In 2010, Patek introduced its trademark Annual Calendar complication (patented in 1996) into the Nautilus paving the way to classical complications. These days, the Geneva-based brand goes one step further with the first grand complication introduced at the Nautilus collection (editor’s note: that the 5740G is a grand complication according to Patek’s nomenclature, but maybe not in strict watchmaking conditions, as a grand complication is traditionally understood as the combination of chiming, chronograph and calendar serves ).

First of all, although the Patek Philippe ref. 5740 nautilus perpetual calendar fake watch Nautilus 5740G might feature a perpetual calendar it remains a Nautilus through and through. No question about this. Yes, we can debate the demand for such a drawback in a luxury sports watch. Yes, it seems very strange to have such a traditional screen in a watch which was designed to be genuinely avant-garde. However, on many levels, the 5740G remains true to the original concept designed by Genta in 1976.

As mentioned, it is the first time that Patek Philippe nautilus 5740/1g-001 clone understands this classic and traditional in terms of mechanics for the Nautilus. The chronograph is understandable, as we’re talking sports watches, the yearly calendar has the benefits of its modernity, but the QP is part of the highly traditional”holy grail” complications, along with the split-seconds chronograph, the tourbillon or the minute repeater (and we sincerely believe we will not be seeing these last two at the Nautilus case shortly ). So… Does a perpetual calendar is logical in a Nautilus? Objectively, no. And at the exact same time, the final result works just fine as this new complication doesn’t degrade or interfere with the original concept.

The simple idea behind the Nautilus would be to combine a contemporary, casual and sportier appeal to the conventional elegant, slender apparel of a legitimate Patek Philippe nautilus 5740 preis replica watches. In this view, the new Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual Calendar 5740G respects the codes. The situation is identical to a time-and-date Ref. 5711, both concerning shape, execution and (most importantly) of proportions. While Patek showed that it could be overly generous with all the 44mm chronograph 5976/1G made for its 40th anniversary, the QP 5740G remains true to the 40mm diameter (from 10 to 4 o’clock). Also, the instance is thicker than the two iconic steel models, using an 8.42mm thickness versus 8.30mm to the 5711A and 8.52mm to the 5712A. In short, the QP module included to calibre 240 is just not visible case-wise.

The rest of the watch is pure Nautilus. Though this Nautilus Perpetual Calendar 5740G is constructed from 18k white gold (meaning that it’s rather heavy, to say the least)we locate the hallmark curved ears on each side of the dial, the combination of brushed and polished surfaces, the integrated bracelet with polished central hyperlinks along with also the iconic octagonal bezel — shaped like a porthole. Nautilus, all the way. Being slightly more fragile, the case is water-resistant to 60m, even though it features a screw-down crown — like the 5712.

As for the dial, we’re somewhat sceptical when we saw the official images — you’ll be able to see them here. A few of them seemed just like that the dial was light blue in colour. The outcome is much more attractive in the flesh. The dial of the Nautilus Perpetual Calendar 5740G is indeed lighter then the one discovered on the 5711 for instance, and much more blue. Yet, it is also rather attractive. First, it shows the iconic grooved pattern as well as the touch hands and mark of this collection. Then, with the 3-6-9 layout, this view feels balanced and surprisingly not too busy. The integration of the QP screen is accomplished.

What to make of the Patek Philippe 5740/1g-001 replica watches Nautilus Perpetual Calendar 5740G. There’s little doubt about the quality of the implementation. This watch is really a demonstration of Patek Philippe’s savoir-faire: lean, bold, perfectly completed, balanced, complicated and in the end, desirable. Of course, it isn’t ideal (electricity reserve and numerous correctors). The question is more about the relevance of a QP at a Nautilus. Even though our hearts will always have a taste for the first 5711 (or the 3700), the perpetual calendar doesn’t feel improper from the context and Patek offers a new flagship to its iconic set that’s harmonious, infrequent and ultra-luxurious — without being ostentatious.
