PATEK PHILIPPE Nautilus
Steel & Gold 18k
For the most delicate of us this 37.5mm timepiece is the alternative to its « Jumbo » sister the Nautilus ref.3700 (41mm). A true unisex watch! You have been warned, Madame will most likely borrow it more often that you would like. The watch proposed here is from the earlier batch of the second series with quick date set and retaining the sought after black date disc.
Movement/serial: 1.42x.xxx/x.xxx.269 (1988)
Dial: ever dreamed of a golden garage door? We got you covered! Perfect and original ridged and sun ray champagne dial. «Sigma . SWISS . Sigma» at 6h indicating the use of gold index and hands. Black date disc which is a feature of the earliest 3800. Yellow gold hour index markers filled with tritium luminous material. The hands luminous although lighter than the one of the index is reacting similarly green & vanish which means they are also tritium. Hypnotic dial.

Bracelet: the bracelet is tight and it still stands-up. 20 links. Original Nautilus clasp.
