AS WORN BY…

Evo India - - WATCHES -

‘I’ve al­ways loved watches, but re­cently de­cided to re­duce my col­lec­tion after dis­cov­er­ing that, if you have too many, most of them go un­worn. As a re­sult I’ve got rid

Patek Philippe Nau­tilus

Worn by: Gerry McGovern, Land Rover de­sign di­rec­tor

of a Pan­erai, an IWC Por­tuguese and a Rolex Sub­mariner. I’m now down to two watches, which are par­tic­u­larly spe­cial to me.

‘One is a rose gold Rolex Cos­mo­graph

Day­tona, but the one I wear most is a Patek Philippe Nau­tilus with a white dial – one of the sim­plest, three-hand mod­els there is. I am a fan of mod­ernism so like re­duc­tion. On a watch that means not hav­ing too many com­pli­ca­tions. Even the most ba­sic Patek is spe­cial and I’m now after an equally ba­sic Cala­trava, another truly clas­sic model.’
