The watch is the only piece of jewellery that a man can wear. There are flashy watches that anyone can recognise, and watches that decide who can appreciate them. The Nautilus Jumbo is one example. I have been bewitched by this jewel that takes its name from the fascinating transatlantic ships of the past. The designers of Patek Philippe have reinterpreted the shape of the portholes in a very seductive way, creating a case made up of eight pieces of a circle plaid out as an octagon. It is perfect worn with a tuxedo, but also on a boat or the golf course. I remember an afternoon a few months ago in Paris, I was staying in the Plaza Athénée and the conciergie – a man used to dealing with royalty and exponents of high finance – seeing my Nautilus Jumbo on my wrist, said ‘quelle montré, Madame!’ Yes, because I gave a Jumbo 3710 as a gift to my husband, and lose no chance to wear it myself! – by Nadejda.
