Description

 Here is a stunning example of a reference 3700/11A Nautilus. The Nautilus was the first luxury sports watch and was designed by the legendary Gerald Genta. Genta’s designs have always been eye catching, distinctive and a pleasure to wear. Over the past few years, the collectors’ market has really seen a demand for these watches.

Original 18k yellow gold and stainless steel case measures 42mm in diameter and is approx 8mm thick. This is a very thin case to be housing an automatic movement. The elite Swiss manufacturers consider a thin automatic movement documentary evidence of their advanced watch making abilities… and the Nautilus’s thinness is a badge of honor for Patek. The crystal on this watch is sapphire. The Nautilus case is iconic and the bezel is unique in the watch world and highly recognizable. Two Tone gold and steel bracelet is integral to the case, with flip-lock deployment clasp.

Truly amazing original Tropical sigma dial with horizontal channeling, date window at 3 o’clock, and original hands. Applied gold hour markers and baton hands.

Movement is the automatically winding Patek Philippe Caliber 28-255 C with 36 jewels; adjusted to heat, cold, isochronism and in 5 positions and stamped with the Geneva Seal. Winding rotor has 21k gold segment to increase mass and consequently winding efficiency.

 

Special watches like this tropical Jumbo Nautilus jump to the top of every collector’s must-have list.
