Conor McGregor's new Patek Philippe with an Irish twist is the green-dialled platinum PP of dreams

From Salt Bae to Brad Pitt, 7 Patek Philippe Nautilus wearers you might not know about

A little backstory first. The original Nautilus was launched in 1976 as a contemporary in design and style to the Royal Oak by Audemars Piguet, which was launched in 1972.

Robert Downey Jr's watch collection – something borrowed, something fake (maybe?) and something fantastic
