The Genta designed masterpiece started with the concept of the “porthole.” Adding to it the embossed striped dial, and the simple but definitely modern hands and you have the magic that is the Nautilus. The small idea turned into one of the ultimate horologic icons over the next forty years!
This watch is crafted in stainless steel and the Nautilus line has come a long way since its first form in 1976. The self winding calibre 240 PS IRM C LU, has both a power reserve indicator and a compact yet visually pleasing moonphase. The hour markers are crafted from white gold, but also coated with a luminescent coating.
You may wear this watch certainly for a dressed up occasion as it is sleep at only 8.5mm thick, yet also with sixty meters of water resistance you can be sure it is going to hold up to sport. The finely finished movement is presented for viewing through a sapphire display back and the micro-rotor a sight to behold, moving gently and definitively to power the watch at the slightest movement.
The sub-seconds dial balancing at 4-5 o’clock make the power reserve feel natural and well-placed opposite to its smooth ticking.
This watch appears near Mint, with papers, box, and card as pictured. It is almost impossible to get new and our price on this watch is almost unheard of for such a lightly used and complete piece. Bracelet is steel and standard fold over clasp included.
Case: Stainless steel 40mm, thin at only 8.5mm. Display back.
Dial: desirable blue embossed dial version. Gold markers.
Hands: white gold.
