Launched in 1976, the Nautilus took a while to become the bestseller that it is, only really taking off a decade ago when the “Jumbo” sized ref. 3712 and then ref. 5711 were launched. Now it’s one of the definitive luxury sports Patek Philippe Replica Watches, alongside the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, which was also designed by Gerald Genta.
Sized exactly the same as the stainless steel Nautilus ref. 5711/1A – which means it’s 40mm Patek Philippe Replica diagonally from bezel edge to edge – the anniversary edition is entirely platinum, case and bracelet.
The density of the metal means the Best Patek Philippe Replica watch feels compact, solid and as expensive as it actually is. But the platinum Nautilus suffers from the same weakness as the stainless steel model, a friction-fit, double fold clasp with a stamped metal safety latch that feels out of place on a watch this finely made.
The Patek Philippe Replica Swiss Movement is similar enough to the ordinary Nautilus as to make it conservative, even boring, which should please traditionalists. Lay it side by side with the steel Nautilus automatic and the visual differences are immediately apparent, but not significant.
In fact, the platinum anniversary Fake Patek Philippe Watch is almost identical to the special edition platinum Nautilus that was made in small quantities for special clients in recent years. The case and bracelet are identical, as is the dial colour.
