Ref. 3700/1 In the 70s Patek Philippe surprised the market with an unconventional wristwatch made of steel. At a time when gold was the epitome of a luxury watch and the trend most definitely went towards ultraflat watches, Patek Philippe decided to create the "Nautilus Jumbo" - a bold porthole design with a plain steel case. The nautical design elements were reflected in the name of the watch and its water resistance (120m), which was considerable at the time.
