Evolution rather than revolution is the watchword for Patek Philippe, and the 2019 Nautilus Ref.5726/1A is a smooth continuation of the brand’s hottest watch.
The 40.5mm steel watch with an annual calendar and moon-phase display has a new blue dial in the same shade as the first Nautilus model launched in 1976.
The dial, with gold applied hour markers, has embossing and subtle grading from blue to black at the dial’s periphery where it meets the clean steel of the case.
Inside is a caliber 324 S QA LU 24H/303 self-winding movement, which is on display through a sapphire crystal case back.
The Ladies Automatic Nautilus in steel with diamond-set bezel has also evolved to a slightly larger diameter 35.2mm instead of 33.6 mm case and comes in a range of dial colours including blue opaline, silvery opaline or gray opaline, grading to black at the periphery.
There are also two rose gold models added to the Ladies Nautilus range, with silvery or golden opaline dials.
