Established in 2005, TIME 4 DIAMONDS is a London based upscale retailer of high end Swiss mechanical watches and bespoke timepieces.

This London based house offers hundreds of exclusive and rare watches afrom brands such as Richard Mille, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Hublot, Rolex, and Cartier.
An outstanding creation from their recent bespoke creations is a custom diamond set Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980 rose gold watch. This sparkling incarnation of the world’s most premium casual elegant wristwatch featured a custom bezel set with 32 baguette-cut diamonds, custom brown dial with baguette diamond hour markers and a custom diamond set bracelet with double fold clasp.
Launched in 1976, the Nautilus was Patek Philippe’s answer to the emergence of premium wristwatches under the luxury sports category. The trend of luxury sports watches began in 1972 with the launch of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch.
When Patek Philippe launched the Nautilus, the unusual concept of the watch and its striking statement of casual elegance instantly developed a cult following. The first Nautilus model (Ref. 3700) featured a 42mm stainless steel case and had a water resistance of 120 meters, a sensation for a regular-production casual watch by 1976 standards.
The brand continued to introduce various Nautilus models with different case sizes and complications. In 2006, Patek Philippe ceased the production of all the pre-2006 models and introduced the new generation of Nautilus collection. This revival edition also welcomed the first ever rose gold Nautilus watch (Ref. 5712R).
It was clear from the very beginning that the Nautilus was not a watch for everyone. It has its own following and the community of its aficionados continues to grow significantly. Today, the Patek Philippe Nautilus line offers impressive timepieces in stainless steel, rose gold, white gold and two-tone editions. This prestigious watch collection is comprised of timepieces for both men and women.
The model featured here is a customized version of the Nautilus Chronograph Ref. 5980R, a new generation Nautilus model. Its 40.5 mm diameter case in 18 carat rose gold adorns a sparking bezel set with a baguette diamonds.
As a perfect match, the brown dial has a horizontal embossed texture and a bright/dark gradation from the center to the periphery, two typical manifestations of the Nautilus style. The baton-style luminescent hands in rose gold also match the dark red hue tone of the case.
Featuring a distinctive, multilayer chronograph sub-dial at 6 o’ clock and a date window at 3 o’clock, its dial maintains a balanced layout. The dial is customized with baguette diamond hour markers that perfectly harmonize with the sparkle of gem-set bezel. The sapphire crystal glass assures the clear view of dial functions.
This timepiece accommodates Patek Philippe’s self-winding CH 28-520 C chronograph movement with column-wheel chronograph with 60- minute mono-counter and sweep seconds (chronograph hand) and aperture date. Fitted with a solid god oscillating weight, this haute-horlogerie movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back.
