The first edition Patek Philippe Nautilus + Rolex Newman Dial Daytona are the two most coveted watches on the planet.
The first edition Nautilus was designed by the most important watch designer of our era, Gerald Genta. After receiving accolades for his designing what became the first luxury sports watch for Audemars Piguet-The Royal Oak, Genta became the most sought after watch designer.
Legend has it, that while sitting at a restaurant bar having dinner, during the 1974 Basel Watch Fair, in walked the Stern family (the owners of Patek), who sat down to dinner. Genta grabbed a bar napkin and pen and sketched what was to become the most iconic luxury sports watch of all time-The Patek Philippe Nautilus. The unusual case was inspired by a ship's porthole, with a rounded octagonal bezel. Here is your chance to own a piece of history with this most perfect example that exists on the planet.
