Patek Philippe’s most coveted model line, the Cheap Nautilus Replica was the focus of the four news. In addition to the ref. 5711/1A with an olive-green dial, the second new Nautilus for men is the Nautilus Travel-Time Chronograph ref. 5990/1R-001, a rich combination of a rose gold case with a deep blue dial.
In rose gold case with a blue dial – rendered in a shade of blue similar to that of the original ref. 5711/1A – the new ref. 5990/1R-001 is good-looking that no doubt looks and feels like a luxury-sports watch, albeit more luxury than sports.
Leaving aside the fact that it’s a Nautilus, hence an ultra fashionable watch that’s near impossible to get, the Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5990/1R Replica is appealing in its intrinsic qualities, regardless of material.
Add to that the fine finishing of the Nautilus case, and the ref. 5990 is a surprisingly refined watch for a biggish sports chronograph.
Applied rose gold hands and indices complement the blue dial that’s stamped with the traditional linear pattern of the Nautilus and finished with a sunburst brushing. Both the hands and indices are solid gold, and filled with luminous paint.
The Swiss Patek Philippe Replica dial layout is actually fairly complex, with several indications for the travel time and calendar, but everything is sensibly laid out and legibly enough.
As typical of the Fake Nautilus, the ref. 5990/1R is finely finished, with alternating satin-brushed and polished finishing visible on the bezel, bracelet and case.
