Patek Philippe Genève, "Nautilus Jumbo"

, Movement No. 1308118, Case No. 541340, Ref. 3700/1, Cal. 28-255C, 42 x 44 mm, circa 1978

An extremely rare vintage bi-color automatic Geneva wristwatch in near mint condition, with date - with original box and original certificate

Case: steel/gold, screwed on bezel, steel/gold Patek Philippe bracelet, bracelet length 140 mm, total length 175 mm. Dial: black, bar texture, applied luminous gold indexes.

In 1976 Patek Philippe launched its first Nautilus model. At this time, luxury sports watches are expected to be as thin as possible, so this large watch with its brawny ship's porthole design is completely novel. The first model of the collection is the Ref. 3700/1; a Swiss patent is awarded for its water-resistant case (up to 120 meters). In 1978 the steel version of this model had a price of 5,450 D-Mark, the gold version came to 16,800 D-Mark - at the time only a little less than a Mercedes-Benz 200 D would cost.

This timepiece has a wonderful, slightly iridescent dial in an elegant charcoal-grey hue. The case is in exceptionally good condition with a firm bracelet and virtually no signs of wear - a watch that has been used with utmost care and which is a rare find even among the most passionate collectors of Patek Philippe timepieces.
Case: very good
Dial: very good
Movm.: very good, capable of running
