Patek Philippe Gives Women a Sporty Option

A few years ago, Patek Philippe resurrected its mod Nautilus for men to mark the 30th anniversary of the brand’s signature sport model. This year, Patek reinterprets the design for women who want an everyday Patek to wear with jeans. Available in white or rose gold with diamond-set bezels and a choice of silver or charcoal dials, the new women’s 32mm Nautilus ($26,800 to $33,700) is powered by a quartz movement. To complement the piece, Patek also produced a line of jewelry, including gold rings that echo the watch’s octagonal bezel. (212.218.1240, www.patek.com)
