Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980 – A Gentleman’s Watch – Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980 – A Gentleman’s Watch

The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980 is a true gentleman’s watch and one that is the topic of this Watch Your Style review.

The Nautilus 5980 is a very conservative model, as are many of Patek Philippe’s designs. It is not for the person that wants a flashy or sporty watch. It is for the true watch connoisseur.

The 5980R was designed by the same Swiss wristwatch designer who designed the Royal Oak case for Audemars Piguet, Gerald Genta.

The 5980 is the chronograph version of the model, which is my favorite one (as opposed to versions like the 5711 and 5712).

One thing I like about the Patek Philippe 5980r is that it’s a bit thicker, which is important for me.

Despite this fact, the watch might be frowned upon by athletes and other watch buyers that might be used to larger style watches that are more commensurate with their body proportions.

Variations of the Patek Philippe 5980

The watch comes in stainless steel, as well as the all-rose gold version, and the rose gold version on a leather strap, which happens to be my favorite.

In terms of value, Patek Philippe watches like the Nautilus 5980 tend to hold their value and even increase over time. So, from an investment point of view, watch investors can allocate money to watches like the Nautilus without worrying about any depreciation over time.

Part of the reason for this is that Patek Philippe does not overproduce their watches, unlike other watch brands. At some point in time, they stop producing certain models and they become discontinued, which tends to drive their price up over time, making them more attractive to watch collectors.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus has a perfect finish, a great combination of satin and polish. The dial is also very classy and not too busy, with two sub-dials into one and a date function.

It also sports one of the most comfortable bands you’ll ever wear.

With a retail price of around $90,000 the rose gold Patek Philippe 5980r is not a piece just anyone could afford. That’s why, if you’re able to buy one and enjoy the true luxuries of life, you’ll definitely stand in the crowd of true watch connoisseurs.
