Another among Gerald Genta’s legendary creations. The Patek Philippe Nautilus was conceived utilizing the universal form of a porthole found on many maritime boats and released only four years after the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak was launched in 1972. Certainly the year 1976 marked a landmark for Patek Philippe 5726 white dial replica watches using a design that wasn’t conventional which would assist the brand appeal to a younger market.
The same as on the remainder of Genta’s creations, the alternating brushed and polished areas on the bezel in addition to the flat top cases are part of the plan. Patek Philippe 5726 rose gold replica watches commissioned Genta to come up with a design that would compete with the Royal Oak which would stand the test of time. The end result, the iconic Nautilus. Initially launched with its unmistakable black-blue dial in 1976 as ref. 3700/1 in stainless steel and together with all the name Nautilus’Jumbo’ owing to its big –40mm– case diameter at the moment, the Nautilus has established itself as a classic, elegant sports watch by one of the top Haute Horlogerie houses.
The Nautilus Annual Calendar with Moon Phase ref. 5726A-001 stays true to the iconic DNA of the Nautilus line when featuring one of our favorite possessions, the yearly calendar with moon phase. The annual calendar differs from the calendar since it doesn’t take into consideration the extra day that’s added to the month of February in leap years –each four years. This is however, a complication which computes odd and even months and also factors in the 31st day of August. In a nutshell, it’s a handy function that averts the wearer having to adjust his watch each month. The black dial –more graphite grey to the naked eye depending on lighting conditions– features white gold applied markers with luminescent material and also the iconic horizontal grooves on its surface.
Fitted with a stainless steel case measuring 40.5 mm in diameter its strong and robust case –like a porthole–, keeps all characteristics of the original Nautilus DNA uncompromised and unaltered. The situation band features four correctors to ease the adjustment of the calendar and moon phase functions. The case and bezel, true to its character, includes contrasting high polished and satin brushed finished areas. Though the satin brushed finish is excellent, we still believe that the satin brushed finish on Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks and Royal Oak Offshores remains a notch above. Moreover, the watch comes with a screw-down crown with the mythical Calatrava cross on it.
The Nautilus Yearly Calendar with Moon Phase ref. 5726A-001 is powered with the automated Patek Philippe 5726/1a-010 chrono24 fake watch calibre 324 S QA LU 24H/303 composed of 347 components, 34 jewels, 10 bridges and which provides a power reserve of 45 hours while hammering at a frequency of 28,800 vph.
