According to a report in Opusculum Taisnieri published in 1562: Two Greeks submerged and surfaced in the river Tagus near the City of Toledo several times in the presence of The Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, without getting wet and with the flame they carried in their hands still alight.

Sea and ocean depths contain lots of secrets. So, underwater travel dreams have always been in the hands of inventors and engineers. Jules Verne’s book 20 Thousand Leagues under the Sea was the first diesel punk novel dedicated to the underwater journey. She was a motivation to designers and engineers to come up with the submarine prototypes.

Deep-sea vehicle prototypes appeared in the early Middle Ages, but it was until 1620 that the first successful submarine tests happened in England.

Presently, underwater vehicles are the most intricate mechanical-electronic systems that can manage several months of underwater trips and explore the deepest depths of oceans in the world.


Metal Time engineers and designers chose to commemorate the well-known submarines in the modular Elusive Nautilus.

The primary approach of the designer was to form a perfect-shape model with ornamental details that will immediately draw attention. The outcome is a model that will embellish any interior. The exciting part of assembling the Elusive Nautilus will be gifted a small technical masterpiece.


Like all Metal Time prefabs, the Elusive Nautilus is made from maintainable food-grade stainless steel certified for consumer goods and toys.

Cutting the set precisely does away with the likelihood of being cut during the process of assembly. The parts closely fit into each other, and there will not be any resulting joint problems.

The brushed metal’s pleasant tactile impressions, durability, and aesthetics constructively differentiate steel parts from plastic or wooden ones used in other constructors.

The model assembling process and the outcome in the finished model form will be a pleasure to you, giving the feeling of a discoverer and design engineer.

The “Elusive Nautilus” model can qualify for an award, valuable trophy, or become a section of a room design or themed fitting devoted to an underwater trip. Besides, the model will beautify your aquarium and turn out to be a favorite element for its inhabitants.

The submarine is made up of a spring mechanism that is kicked off by rotating the model’s bow. Controlling the mechanism involves pressing the periscope, which rotates the submarine’s propeller, initiating its movement into the ocean’s depths.


Besides, every customer gets a club badge “Metal Time” and the club’s registration card, which creates opportunities for the “Metal Time” constructor owners activities.
