Launched in 1976, the Nautilus was surprising in several respects. The choice of stainless steel was totally unusual for a luxury watch. The octagonal bezel with rounded corners departed from conventional designs. Its case was inspired by a ship’s porthole. The exceptional robustness and water resistance to 120 meters was an extreme challenge then for a regularly produced watch and the interplay of polished and satin-brushed finissage emphasized the uniqueness of the form elements.      


In 2006, on its 30th anniversary, its style was subtly reworked. While there have been many versions of this famous case over the years, the reference 5990 Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph with two time zones, a flyback chronograph, and an analog date made its debut in 2014.


Complete with all original accessories, the present watch is offered in excellent overall condition.
