For almost 150 years, Patek Philippe, the sole remaining Genevan watch manufacturer that still enjoys total creative freedom, has been meticulously crafting timepieces that are at once functional and graceful. Among its renowned creations is the Patek Philippe Nautilus, a series of luxurious watches that only gains stature and value with the passing of time.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus watches come in an array of styles created for men as well as women who believe that true opulence is in the details. Whether the proud wearer is attending a black-tie affair or making a splash in the Maldives, there is a suitable Patek Philippe Nautilus timepiece to complement the moment.

A sporty style of the Patek Phillipe Nautilus features a three-part case and wristband made of stainless steel, a material that defies rust and many other corrosive forces of nature. Its sapphire-crystal case back reveals the fastidiously engineered Patek Philippe caliber 240 PS IRM C LU that gives the Patek Philippe Nautilus its accurate mechanical movement. The screw-down crown and moon-phase corrector push piece in the side of the case provides the Patek Phillipe Nautilus water resistance capacity up to 60 meters.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus is also available in 18K Rose Gold, matched with a suave black face and a crocodile strap with an exclusive fold-over clasp. It is an automatic timepiece powered by the caliber 324 S C, 29 jewels mechanism. This sophisticated Patek Philippe Nautilus is guaranteed to create a lasting impression under the subtle cloak of elegance.

Women of extraordinary substance will appreciate the beauty of the Patek Philippe Nautilus with an 18K white gold case and bracelet and adorned with 46 fiery diamonds. Behind its chic charcoal gray face is the quartz movement of caliber E 23 S C. This style is also available in 18 Rose Gold case and bracelet.

There is also something for ladies who crave the warmth of classic affluence: the Patek Phillipe Vintage Nautilus in 18K Yellow Gold case and bracelet. This, too, is tastefully enhanced with diamonds and possesses the self-assured aura of extravagance.

The Patek Phillipe Nautilus is not intended for everyone. These timepieces are only for a select few who understand that the Patek Phillipe Nautilus is not merely a watch. These are exceedingly beautiful investments almost as precious as time itself. More importantly, the Patek Phillipe Nautilus is an insignia of the rarefied lifestyle of the successful and the renowned.
