Patek Philippe, Jumbo Nautilus, ca. 1979.
What brought the watch world into turmoil more than 40 years ago, has meanwhile developed into a cult object: The sporty-elegant Nautilus by Patek Philippe. A steel watch did not fit in with the ostentatiousness of gold luxury watches - especially not a watch with this extravagant shape and size. Patek Philippe's goal was to appeal to a new generation of active, sporty people. The launch of the watch was accompanied by an advertising campaign that was as original as it was brash: "One of the most expensive watches in the world is made of steel!"
