brand lav­ishly uses that color on an 18K-yel­low gold base. This has never been used on a Patek Philippe Nau­tilus. While the case fits just right for mod­ern gents, the orig­i­nal Nau­tilus, which was 2mm smaller, was nick­named “Jumbo” due to its size. Of course, the rise of the Boe­ing 747 “Jumbo Jet” in the ’70s might have played a part in this.

Now, given the use of plat­inum for the case and bracelet, and yel­low gold for the dial base, this watch fetches a hand­some price. Each spec­i­men will come in an el­e­gant box made of nat­u­ral brown cork, an au­then­tic replica of the one used to en­case the 1976 model. That is, of course, if you can get one out of 700 pieces avail­able world­wide.
