"Full Set" - A legendary automatic vintage Geneva wristwatch with date, sold in June 1980. With original cork box, red Patek Philippe imitation leather briefcase, original certificate and original operating instructions

Case: steel, screwed on bezel, Patek Philippe steel bracelet, bracelet length 145 mm, total length 180 mm. Dial: black, bar-like texture.

This Nautilus Jumbo reference 3700/1 in the highly coveted steel case comes from the original owner and with all its accessories – it is the first time that such a magnificent "full set" is presented at an auction.

The sophisticated "porthole" design by Gerald Genta ensures that the Nautilus remains one of the most remarkable and sought-after models of the Patek Philippe range today. The watch was created in 1976 and its rather chunky shape - inspired by the shape of a porthole of a transatlantic liner – certainly stood out from the other, rather more conservative designs of the Patek Philippe brand. The distinctive "Jumbo" case has a wide, flat bezel and an integrated bracelet. The black ribbing of the dial is repeated on the applied indexes and the baton hands. Early on the Nautilus was not a sales success but its popularity grew extremely fast and soon the Nautilus stood for sophistication, vitality and character.
Case: very good
Dial: very good, later original
Movm.: very good, capable of running, cleaning recommended
