Other Watchy Bits: The Patek Philippe Nautilus

A watchmaker ahead of his time, Genta developed watches for brands such as Omega (Constellation), an early piece with Patek (Golden Ellipse), Audemars Piguet (Royal Oak) and IWC (Ingenieur). With his extraordinary level of expertise and existing knowledge of AP, Patek gave him the wheel to create their stainless steel sports watch. As Genta tells it, he sketched the design of the Nautilus in 5 minutes while eating at a hotel restaurant.
