Designed by the Picasso of watch designers, Gérald Genta, Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 is one of the most sought after luxury sports watches on the market. Introduced in 1976, this watch symbolizes the “muscular design and dauntless, charismatic personality” as Patek Philippe’s own website puts it. Even though Patek Philippe is not as famous to the mass consumers as Rolex, who presents themselves through advertisements, among the watch community, Patek Philippe is considered the best watch making brand. As a Patek Philippe’s sport watch, the iconic case of the Nautilus represents porthole of a ship. Even though the entire watch is in all stainless steel, the stiff price of the watch comes from the brand’s craftsmanship. As the general shape of the watch gets produced by a machine, machine outlined parts goes thorough Patek Philippe’s watch makers to be hand polished to perfection. Especially, the contrast between the polished steel bracelet and the super polished fold-over clasp shows the fine craftsmanship of Patek Philippe.

In the past, Geneva seal used to represent the quality and precision of the Patek Philippe Seal. However, as Geneva seal decided to put the hallmark on variety of under-quality watches, Patek Philippe decided to ditch the Geneva seal and stand out of the crowd with there own seal that set the new standard of the watch movement hallmark. Overall, this watch of Patek Philippe and Gérald Genta remains one of the most iconic and popular luxury sport watches of this era.
