Christie’s is set to host an an­niver­sary sale to com­mem­o­rate the 40th an­niver­sary of the Patek Philippe Nau­tilis Model. the in­ter­na­tional watch depart­ment will be car­ry­ing out the auc­tion in four ma­jor cities—dubai, Geneva, hong Kong and New York—from oc­to­ber to De­cem­ber.

orig­i­nally launched in 1976, the Nau­tilis Model was cre­ated out of Patek Philippe’s de­sire to cre­ate a sports watch that had both a strong per­son­al­ity and an un­for­get­table de­sign. the brand has his­tor­i­cally been known for its ul­tra-slim and com­pli­cated dress watches, but with the Nau­tilus launch in 1976, Patek Philippe took a risk by mov­ing into seem­ingly un­fa­mil­iar ter­ri­tory. the watch was noth­ing like what the brand had done be­fore. in­spired by sea trav­ellers, the watch’s de­sign draws sim­i­lar­i­ties to the port­hole found on nearly ev­ery mar­itime ves­sel.

to­day, the Nau­tilus is still in pro­duc­tion and through­out time it has gained style through sub­tle and care­fully cal­cu­lated changes while pre­serv­ing its orig­i­nal spirit of a clas­sic, el­e­gant sports watch. At the time back of its launch, the Nau­tilus had a key role for Patek Philippe’s over­all mar­ket­ing strat­egy in re­sponse to the quartz revo­lu­tion and the evolv­ing fine watch mar­ket of the 1970s.
