Nothing looks, or sounds, quite like Nautilus™. A revolution when it first launched 30 years ago and still an icon today, its ethos informs everything we do. Nautilus comes in three standard colors: Midnight Blue, Black, and Silver. We also offer a special service that can match any color from a sample or color reference.

Making magic

Nautilus embodies everything Bowers & Wilkins stands for: a no-holds-barred approach to creating the perfect loudspeaker. It represents our fundamental purpose, our passion for True Sound, and the last wish of our founder, John Bowers. Nautilus is the pursuit of an ideal speaker and the approach and the methodology to get there. That's what we're instilling in everyone, and that thread runs through today 30 years later.

Shaped by sound

Very few would dare to make something so bold. Admittedly, Nautilus is bold, even for us. Its instantly recognizable form may be pure art, but it was defined by the science of sound, remaining a constant reminder of what's possible. The long, tapered damping tubes were a revolution, allowing the drive units to work optimally by gently absorbing stray energy. To this day, many of the ground-breaking technologies used in the creation of Nautilus are used elsewhere across our range of world-class loudspeakers.

A lasting legacy

Nautilus is more than simply a beautifully designed object of desire: its high-quality performance is renowned the world over.
