PATEK PHILIPPE Nautilus
18k Yellow Gold « New Old Stock » condition
For the most delicate of us this 37.5mm timepiece is the alternative to its « Jumbo » sister the Nautilus ref.3700 (42mm). A true unisex watch! You have been warned, Madame will definitely borrow it more often that you would like. The watch proposed here is part of the first series.
Movement/serial: 1.42x.xxx/x.xxx.534 (1986)
Dial: Mint (should say NEW) 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 matching the tritium of the hands. Crazy dial.
Case: As new with no evidence the watch was ever touched. The oxydation on various locations on the watch are another evidence it was untouched. The 3D calatrava cross on the clasp tells the same « new old stock » story. The matching 3 digits number in the hinge of the bezel with the last 3 of the case proves it is the original one. Diameter 37.5mm. Thickness 7.9mm. Weight 142g.
Bracelet: the bracelet is so tight that the watch is firmly standing up. 20 links. Original Nautilus clasp.
Box & papers: original guarantee from an American retailer, booklets, box & coverbox and travel pouch.
A vintage dream
