PATEK PHILIPPE Nautilus 3700/11A full set
Outstanding condition. The presented timepiece is an original Jumbo sold in 1982 in Germany. It comes with its full set and a recent service from Patek Philippe.
Dial: Patek Philippe has asked to the designer Gerald Genta to come up with a deep blue/grey dial reflecting « the true color of the ocean » for this water sports watch. This watch has retained its original color with no evolution of its patina since it was made. Flawless condition with applied indexes in white gold. Dial « type 7 » 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.
Case: impressive condition. As new with sharp angles. The bezel has its initial proportions of the porthole pattern which is characteristic of the Nautilus reference.
Bracelet: excellent condition thin bracelet (/11A) with 21 links. For some wrist this version is more confortable than the larger version. This bracelet is still holding up. It is estimated that less than 900 Nautilus ref.3700 were made with this thinner bracelet /11A.
An absolutely stunning example of a legendary watch that should belong to any curated collection.
