Founded in 1839 in Switzerland, Patek Philippe is one of the most renowned watch manufacturers in the world. It was initially named Patek, Czapek & Cie before Francois Czapek left the firm in 1845. Antoine Norbert de Patek joined French watchmaker Adrien Philippe, and the company was renamed Patek Philippe in 1851 when Philippe became a full-fledged partner. Philippe later invented the company's famous stem?winding and hand-setting mechanism.

Patek Philippe has been at the forefront of pioneering watch movements and mechanisms. Among their numerous achievements are the first keyless watch, the first wristwatch with a perpetual calendar, and watches with the most sophisticated complications in the world, such as the Calibre 89. Many of these innovative timepieces, dating from the 16th century onwards, are showcased at the Patek Philippe museum in Geneva.

In 1932, the Stern family began managing the company. Today, Patek Philippe remains the last family-owned independent watch manufacturer in Geneva.

Intended for people with sporty and active lifestyles, Patek Philippe's Nautilus series is an elegant design that was first introduced in 1976. Four decades later, it is available in four combinations - steel, rose gold, white gold or two tone - and the original aesthetic features, including a rounded octagonal bezel, horizontally embossed dial, and a porthole-style case. The present lot is made of yellow gold and embellished with pave-set diamonds across the dial, bezel and bracelet.
