At first glance
When the Patek Philippe Ladies Automatic Nautilus timepiece arrived, I was instantly impressed. Aside from its mechanical self-winding movement with a power reserve up to 45 hours it is an extremely handsome offering from Patek Philippe. A brand not shy of presenting the world with magnificent Swiss Made quality timepieces, the Nautilus is a cut above the rest.
Up close and personal
Despite its distinctively designed soft rectangular shaped 33.6 mm case, stunning blue-tinted mother-of pearl dial and a bezel set with 50 pristine 0.71 ct diamonds, it is the unique and superb finishing touches that really excite me.
With its smooth carved out sides, undulating design across the dial and interlinking dual matt gloss steel link bracelet with an appealing Nautilus fold-over clasp – this is a serious choice for a woman who has exceptional taste and knows her watches. Turn the watch over and you will be greeted with the spectacular see through case back with its exclusive Gyromax® balance wheel, 29 jewels and the reassuring Patek Philippe hallmark. It’s worth watching our video review to get a real sense of its splendour.
On the wrist
Faultless on the wrist, this is a must-have collector’s timepiece worthy of withstanding time. Exuding an air of accomplishment it rightly deserves to be coveted and treasured and whilst adorning your wrist it will speak a thousand words.
