Originally launched in 1976, the Nautilus has become the epitome of a luxury sports watch and an icon of the Patek Philippe brand. Initially only produced in steel, as the demand for the Nautilus expanded, so did the production of the Nautilus family to include precious metals and two-tone models in the 1980s. Further elevating this classic collection, the reference 5740 model launched in 2018 features a perpetual calendar, making it the first Grand Complication in the Nautilus collection.


Powering this white gold timepiece is an ultra-thin self-winding calibre movement that makes this reference 5740 Patek Philippe’s thinnest wristwatch to feature the perpetual calendar complication. Paired with a sky-blue sunburst dial adorned with telltale horizontal embossing, the powerful combination of technical sophistication and sporting elegance made this timeless watch a perfect match for any lifestyle or occasion.
