Footnotes

  • The Nautilus, originally designed by Gerald Genta in 1976, is thought to owe its unique shape and construction to the transatlantic liners' porthole designs; inspired by the secure windows at sea that were sealed hermetically by a clever system of tension bolts against the glass.

    The present watch has never been offered at auction before and is being sold by the original owner's family. The watch is in excellent condition and the rarity is further enhanced by the original receipt from Asprey.

Saleroom notices

  • Please note that this watch also comes with an Extract from the Archives by Patek Philippe.
