The Nautilus model today is an iconic model, be it for a woman or a man, with complications or time only, this model is now one of the most appreciated of all the history of horology. The Nautilus first saw light in 1976, coming from yet another great idea by Gerald Genta who firstly drew this iconic model while he was eating in a restaurant. This particular model offered here is a very rare and unusual reference 4700 realized in yellow gold with bracelet and quartz movement. The conditions of preservation of the whole watch are extremely nice and to add further appeal to a model already extremely sought after in recent years is the precious bezel made of brilliant-cut diamonds. The union of diamonds with the yellow-gold structure of the entire watch gives more preciousness to a simply perfect object for a woman’s wrist. The champagne dial with horizontal channels with which this 4700 is equipped is a classic for a Nautilus but the eleven diamond indexes for the hours are a feature that is very difficult to find. The entire watch comes with 44 brilliant-cut diamonds 0.40K and outer 56 diamonds 0.26K, the bracelet recalls the decoration of the bezel with its original factory set embellished with 176 diamonds.
