If you could buy only 1 between these 2 Nautilus





If you could buy only 1 between 5980R and 5980/1R which one do you choose and why?

The leather strap as it's cheaper and easier to get

1R because it's amazing.

The R is nice with the red accents on the chronodial but the leather doesn't appeal to me.

the R is a bit easier on the eye, the 1R is a massive junk of gold. still, if i could have only one it would (most likely) be the 1R. prefer AR though.

If you prefer leather strap, then the 5980R.
If you prefer full bracelet, then the 5980/1A (go for the blue!).

Leather strap would be my preference, I think it looks amazing.

I will go for the 5980/1A (blue) on the resale market since it has been discontinued. I'm a white metal/blue dial guy.

I prefer the dial of the R and the leather strap works nicely with the RG. Then get the 5711/1R for the bracelet.

It seems the R have better dial than the 1R. But the 1R looks nicer due to gold bracelet?

Much prefer my 5990 - I like having travel time plus chrono. Frankly I like having chrono but never use it. A close 2nd for me would be my 5711R . :-))

Yes, also for me R dial is better, but if I had to choose I prefer 1R due to the gold bracelet.

Agree with others. R dial is better. But I don’t like the strap. If I was forced to choose just one I’d go for the 1R because the bracelet makes it overall better.

Personally I would prefer a pre-owned steel version 5980 with blue dial over either of these.

If you're gonna go gold, go all the way. On the bracelet, that is one badass, no apologies watch.
