What makes a nautilus so appealing!

I’ve owned a lot of sport style, casual elegant, and tool watches over the years from many different manufacturers. Based on being here for a while and seeing/reading a lot of our member’s posts, I’m sure many of you have had even more experience in this

Two of my favourite and would say vintage Pateks are back from Patek Geneva after a much due complete service overhaul and even dial change ..

Took almost 6 months and the job done was fantastic by PP service . I can complain about the costs but job done was so overwhelming that it was worth every penny . Well done Patek ! Both were 1977 production models and purchased in 1979...references 3605/

Resale value for Discontinued Golden Ellipse models

although having been in production for 50 years has not enjoyed the good resale values when compared to other Pateks. It may have the same movement as the Calatrava models but one can pick up a yellow gold model from the 70s, 80s or 90s at a great price.

I've had my heart set for the Yellow Golden 3738/100J-012 for quite some time, and just when I was about to travel to Geneva to purchase one, learned that there's no more inventory and that the model is discontinued. Bummer... And no - the Rose and Platin
