Patek Philippe, rare and attractive Jumbo Nautilus with original warranty certificate, 1979.

Stainless steel.
D 42 x 44 mm.

What caused an uproar in the watch world over 40 years ago has now become a cult object: the sportive, elegant Nautilus by Patek Philippe. A steel watch did not fit the profile of gold luxury watches - even more so with its eye-catching size and extravagant shape. Patek Philippe's goal was to appeal to a new generation of active, sportive people. The launch of the watch was supported by an advertising campaign that was as original as it was cheeky: "One of the most expensive watches in the world is made of steel !" was the title of a sensational ad.
