Catalogue Note

The movement was manufactured in 1976 and the timepiece was sold in 1989.  The Patek Philippe Nautilus, reference 3700 is one of the hottest watches on the market today. Most commonly found in stainless steel, the bi-metal steel and gold version is much rarer and arguably undervalued, compared to the all steel version. The present watch is in lovely original condition with strong case proportions and the gold has developed a nice patina, giving the watch a lot of character.
