This is the thing that occurs on the off chance that you put 5 aficionados of Gérald Genta plans in a single room. Recently, our own special watch picture taker Bert welcomed us over to his den for the ideal BBQ (no vegetables) and show all our while getting a charge out of good food and drinks.
As you can see, we brought the standard suspects. 2x Patek Philippe Nautilus 3700/1A, 2x Nautilus 5711/1A, 1x Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 5402ST, 1x Royal Oak 14802 and 2x a Royal Oak 15202ST. All viewed as the ‘Jumbo’ models as planned by Gérald Genta. What’s more, there were a few deviations of the first models, for example, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph 26300 , the Royal Oak Lady and an IWC Ingenieur SL Automatic in gold. All the watches are on top of the Royal Oak 40th commemoration book by AP. One Patek is absent from the image, however that one is highlighted underneath 🙂
Some time back, I did a comparison audit on the Royal Oak and Nautilus ( which you can discover here ), however yesterday the overall assessment was that you really need both. These watches are totally different, and individuals who were available who had ‘just’ one of them, seen that they really couldn’t imagine anything better than to have the other too. In spite of the fact that individuals keep compare them (counting yours really), they are totally different. The Nautilus is extremely smooth and smooth where the Royal Oak is somewhat more crude and ‘hard core’.
Below, an outline of the four Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’ models of which two are the very same (even don’t vary that much as far as chronic numbers). We were just missing one reference number, which is the uncommon Royal Oak ref.15002. Like the celebration form that was additionally present yesterday (ref.14802), however without the straightforward case back.
Last yet not least, the one that was absent on the primary picture, the Patek Philippe Nautilus ref.3700/1A from 1977. As should be obvious, it is in its unique stopper box. Really an uncommon find. The development inside this Patek Philippe Nautilus 3700 is indistinguishable from those utilized (and as yet being utilized) for the AP Royal Oak Jumbo, all dependent on Jaeger-LeCoultre type 920 .
Attending were , Bert, Michael , and myself. Anticipating the following BBQ theme.
