Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph 5980-1A
The Patek Philippe watch design organization has become known for its no-nonsense designs and its straightforward watch names. The Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph 5980/1A is a no-nonsense design that combines the best of a practical sports watch design with the elegance of a luxury watch. One of the things that Patek Philippe has become known for is the contrast of brushed surfaces with polished surfaces on its watches. The Nautilus Chronography 5980/1A has those design features that Patek Philippe has become famous for along with the precision and quality that consumers have come to expect. This chronograph is a multipurpose device that is practical when you need and luxurious as well. As with most of the Patek Philippe designs, the Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph 5980/1A is made from durable stainless steel from the case to the band. The band is a clasp-type bracelet that can adjust to many different sizes. The polished case is set off by the brushed bezel, which offers a very unique look. The contrast of brushed metal with polished helps to make the black watch face stand out, and it also helps to make the relatively small face of this watch easier to read in any kind of lighting conditions. Patek Philippe is known for putting a lot into a small watch face, and the 5980/1A offers those unique design features. The sub-dial inside the small face helps people to easily track seconds, minutes and hours. The unique oblong design of the main watch face, along with the contrast of the large white hands on the black face, make the Roman numeral numbers stand out even more. There is also a spot near the wind device for displaying the day of the month. All of the time features in this watch are controlled by a precise combination of precious gems that work together to keep the day and the time as precise as possible. As part of the design of the watch, the back is transparent and protected with a sapphire crystal face for added durability. You can watch the precision parts at work in your timepiece as you get used to all of its functions. The 55-hour power reserve is one of the largest in the industry and is just another engineering triumph for the Patek Philippe design team. The Nautilus Chronograph 5980/1A is a triumph in timepiece engineering, but it is also one of the more luxurious watches you will ever own.
