The legend of luxury Patek Philippe Nautilus fake watch was begun in 1970s. The famous designer of watches, Gerald Genta sat in the restaurant during the Baselword, said to the waiter: “ I want a piece of paper and a pencil, and I want to design a wristwatch.” Then five minutes later, he drew the preliminary sketch of Nautilus on the napkin.
Nautilus has usually been considered as the ramification of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, but this is not the truth. Although they are similar in some details, however, Nautilus is like the trendy cruiser while Royal Oak is more like the yacht. Genta provides a simpler appearance for Patek Philippe imitation watch with stainless steel case, meanwhile, developing a new solution of the waterproof design, which are the two “ears” on the two sides of the case, guaranteeing the waterproofness.
The bezel of Nautilus is octangle, but with the mild curves, making the wristwatch more luxury. It has also been one of the most symbolic features of Patek Philippe Nautilus. Till 1980, the brand could manufacture the case and bracelet of Nautilus by itself and till 1981, the iconic Nautilus had been equipped with the Patek Philippe-manufactured movement. They were all outsourced before.
