MAD Paris Crafts $300,000 Black Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712

Independent luxury watch customisers MAD Paris has gone the understated route with its take on a Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712. 

A solid sports watch with a history that spans over four decades, MAD Paris has managed to bring a new sense of style to this classic timepiece offering a blacked-out reinvention.

This limited edition stealth black wristwatch features a rounded octagonal face and a horizontally embossed dial in an elegant dark blue behind sapphire glass. The hours are highlighted by thick black indices and encompass a moon phase dial, calendar and minutes reader.

The Patek Philippe logo is emblazoned on both the wrist strap and crown and the watch is water-resistant up to 60 metres.

As is the case with most MAD Paris creations, this bad boy isn’t cheap, with the modified Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712 going for a touch under AU$300,000. If the price hasn’t scared you off, head to now and grab one before they sell out.
