This watch has retained its original color with no evolution since 1981. Flawless condition with applied indexes in white gold. Dial « type 3 » according to scholar mstanga « a study of Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 3700 ».
The tritium of the original hands is perfectly matching the tritium of the indexes.
