In the early’70s, the watch-making world was introduced to a new concept, the luxury sports watch. Shortly after however, other makers began to follow suit, together with Patek Philippe nautilus 7118/1a-011 replica watches releasing the Nautilus ref 3700 at 1976.
Produced by none other than Gérald Genta, the inspiration for his Nautilus’ layout struck him while he was having dinner at a restaurant. He drew his inspiration in the unique features of portholes found on transatlantic liners and it took him no less than 5 minutes to sketch this iconic piece.
This year we see the release of this Ladies Automatic Nautilus (Ref 7118) in stainless steel emphasising a somewhat casual sophistication in a really feminine style with two new dial colors –a silvery opaline shade (above) and a smoky grey hue (top). The gold applied hour markers and hands with luminous coating complements the dial well while the mechanical self-winding Calibre 324 S C (accessible for all Nautilus watches) completes this 35mm watch as a graceful and robust timekeeper perfect for someone looking for a no frills and well-built watch that exudes elegance.
Once reserved for men, the Nautilus has been steadily gaining popularity among the women, a matter reflected in Patek Philippe nautilus quartz movement 7118/1a-011 imitation watch‘s fix to relook their offerings with a more feminine touch in recent times. More than 40 decades later, the Nautilus is still a splendid luxury sports watch for women and men. As an iconic collection, the Nautilus would unquestionably be a terrific keepsake to pass on from a mother to a daughter.
