The Patek Philippe Nautilus was the first luxury sports watch and was designed by the legendary late great Gerald Genta. The majority of the production was in stainless steel. Genta designed watches have always been eye catching, distinctive and a pleasure to wear. Over the past few years, the collectors’ market can’t get enough of these watches.

Special watches like this deeply tropical Jumbo Nautilus jump to the top of every collector’s must-have list.

Original steel case measures 44.5mm long by 42mm long by 7.6mm thick. Before proceeding further, it should be noted that this is a very thin case to be housing an automatic movement. The elite Swiss manufacturers consider a thin automatic movement documentary evidence of their advanced watchmaking abilities… and the Nautilus’s thinness is a badge of honor for Patek. Crystal is sapphire. There are steel shoulders protecting the crown. The Nautilus case is iconic and the bezel is unique in the watch world and highly recognizable.

Steel bracelet is integral to the case, with flip-lock deployment clasp.

Truly amazing original Tropical Havana brown-gold sigma dial with horizontal channeling, date window at 3 o’clock, and original hands. Applied white gold hour markers and baton hands.

Movement is the automatically winding Patek Philippe Caliber 28-255 C with 36 jewels; adjusted to heat, cold, isochronism and in 5 positions and stamped with the Geneva Seal. Winding rotor has 21k gold segment to increase mass and consequently winding efficiency.

Watch is in mint condition with vintage Patek box and Extract from the Archives showing production in 1980 and retail sale in May 1982. We encourage anyone interested in acquiring this rare Nautilus not to wait…
