Patek Philippe Nautilus 40th Anniversary 5976/1G will come in a massive, 49.25-millimeter-wide, 18-karat white gold case – and it will be limited to 1,300 pieces. 50 millimeters wide, no matter how you look at it, is large not just for a Patek Philippe watch, but any modern luxury watch.
Things do look a bit different when considering the 10-to-4 o’clock diagonal measurement of the case which is a more reasonable 44 millimeters, while lug-to-lug the 5976/1G measures in at 49.60 millimeters.
That’s the kind of lug-to-lug size that most 42 millimeter-wide round watches have, so wearability should be sort of OK – but the wrist-presence will still be more than substantial (and incomparable to most other Patek watches).
Luxury watch style. Watch label: Swiss Made.
