Buy Patek Philippe Nautilus Annual Calendar steel Fake Watch 5726/1A-014

Since the original Patek Philippe Nautilus (replica Patek Philippe Nautilus) was launched, it has been more than 40 years old, and now this classic timepiece is more popular than ever. Nautilus (ref. 3700/001A) was first introduced in the mid-1970s and was designed by the legendary Gérald Genta. Due to its pioneering role in high-end, luxury sports watches, it has become a veritable watch icon.

Nautilus was released later than Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak and proposed a different view of luxury sports watches, although like Royal Oak (also designed by Mr. Gengta), it is made of steel (standard version) ). The early 1970s was an era of great changes in the watchmaking industry, and the concept of steel luxury watches was a truly revolutionary idea. In 1976, the advent of Patek Philippe’s Nautilus firmly changed the direction of luxury sports watch design-providing Audemars Piguet with a real competitor to Royal Oak, which was only four years old at the time. The reference number 3700 Nautilus is usually called “Huge” due to its relatively large size during this period.

referee. 3700/001A is not only unprecedented in design, but also in initial pricing to consumers. When Nautilus was released, which was quite impressive at the time, comparable to many Patek Philippe gold replica watches. At the time of its release, the world had begun to shift to the highly commercialized quartz watch industry. In 1969, Seiko introduced the first quartz watch-its success (and its successors) brought the mechanical watch industry to a very low level of production in the early 1980s. Due to the innovative design of Nautilus, it is estimated that only 3,300 cases of 3700/001A have been produced.

Strikingly, it is said that Gerald Genta has drafted a 3700 design, which is only a few meters away from Patek Philippe executives. Today, his “five minutes work” is considered one of the masterpieces of modern watch design. Its etymology comes from Jules Verne’s novel “Twenty Thousand Alliances Under the Sea”, after the “Nautilus” submarine used by Captain Nemo.

Like the Royal Oak, Nautilus’s waterproof technology (120 meters) requires innovative strategies. Gerald Genta’s inspiration for the iconic Nautilus is to imitate the safety “porthole” window on the transatlantic ocean liner, which consists of two pieces, a solid monolithic and an octagonal bezel. It is fixed by four lateral screws (hidden in 3 places). And 9 o’clock), firmly fix the case together.

This Nautilus 3700/001A stainless steel Online replica watch achieves the perfect balance between practical function and elegant design. Both the case and bracelet are finished with beveled, polished and grained surfaces. The original bracelet (with a complete link) has almost no elasticity. The 3700 case has a diameter of 42 mm and a thickness of only 7.6 mm. It is a perfect blend of perspective and size. The inner case back cover can correctly display the unique serial number (532 XXX) of the watch under the manufacturer’s signature, and the reference number “3700/1”. The underside of the hinged “ear” (located at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions) also displays a 3-digit serial number, which appropriately matches the last 3 digits on the back cover of the inner case.

The hand-crafted ridge dial made by Stern Fréres shows horizontal grooves with dark gray. The applied hour markers are full of tri gas and have an external minute scale with a “dash”, the original polished baton pointer (with a luminous insert) and a date hole at 3 o’clock (with the original date dial). In this example, the index marks and hands are made of platinum and are indicated by the lowercase Greek letter “sigma” at the bottom of the dial. Over time, these platinum index marks have begun to oxidize, showing wonderful eye-fixing effects in some places.

Nautilus 3700/001A is equipped with a 28-255C ultra-thin movement, which is derived from the legendary ultra-thin JLC 920 movement of Jaeger-LeCoultre. The 2121 movement is based on the Jaeger-LeCoultre’s first project, the 2120 movement in 1967. It was funded and contributed by Patek Philippe, and used Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. ) Is famous for its adoption (in Royal Oak 5402 and VC 222). The 28-255C movement uses Patek Philippe’s famous free pendulum gyro balance wheel. Four ruby ​​wheels support a full-diameter rotor, which runs on a beryllium rail to maintain stability. The solid gold rotor is made in the classic Patek Philippe style with round Geneva stripes. The Patek Philippe 28-255C movement is still one of the thinnest all-rotor automatic winding movements in the world, and is regarded by many as the most exquisite and advanced watch movement ever made. The important thing is that its movement serial number (1.303.XXX) corresponds to its year of production.

Reference link. 3700/001 is significantly wider and straighter than the reference. 3700 / 011A, with a more exaggerated taper of the bracelet.

Steel 3700/001A (with larger bracelet) was produced from 1976-82. The clasp of the 3700/001A bracelet corresponds to the earlier example of the 3700/001A, without the words “Nautilus” engraved next to “PATEK PHILIPPEGENÉVE”, “STEEL INOX” and “SWISS MADE”.
