This wonderful watch combines two of Patek’s most useful complications – a travel time and a chronograph – housed in an iconic Nautilus steel case. Arguably the most sought-after sports watch format of present times, this piece is presented on its original steel bracelet, fastened with a signed, folding Nautilus clasp. Water-resistant to 120 metres and accurate to -3/+2 seconds per day, fewer than 100 examples are believed to have ever been produced.
