The Patek Philippe Nautilus is one of the most iconic PP watches around, originally based on the universal shape of a ship’s porthole. Designed as a sporty and casual watch, the Nautilus is available in a variety of options, from the simple automatic hand to moonphase and date by hand indicator and such. Here’s one option you don’t see very option – a fully iced out Nautilus. For those unfamiliar, ‘iced’ is used to refer to a diamond covered piece, such is the clarity of the world’s most precious gem. This variation sports Patek Philippe’s Caliber 324 S QA LU 24H/303, is an automatic (self-winding) movement that incorporates an annual calendar, moon phases, 24-hr dial and sweep seconds hands.
The unique texture of the black dial contrasts brilliantly against the luminous hands and even more so against the diamond-crusted bracelet and crown. Rare as it is, this watch is not something you’ll see often in the wild (with its US$63,000 resale tag). (Photo: pristine_jewelers_ – Instagram)
