Description

The legendary Nautilus’ bloodline started in 1976 with the iconic reference 3700 nicknamed “Jumbo” due to its imposing size for those days.
In direct competition with AP’s bold “Royal Oak”, these models were over-sized and “over-priced” for steel watches, establishing a new norm in the ultra luxury sport segment during the “Quartz crisis”.
Created by the equally legendary Gerald Genta, sketched within minutes for Patek Philippe executives it is believed to be one of his best and most timeless designs.

The present reference 3700/001 in stainless steel with integrated bracelet and deployant clasp is fitted with a black “Sigma” dial with horizontal stripes and applied steel baton indexes with matching luminous hands, with round dot minutes markers and the date at 3 o’clock in an aperture.
The extra-thin Caliber 28-255 C housed in the 42mm case allowed the watch to be only 7.6mm thick, it had a 40-hour power reserve and was regarded as the most significant ultra-slim automatic movement.

What is remarkable is our complete set includes the orignal box, outer carton box, orignal warranty certificate and the original invoice dated 1977.
