Catalogue Note

Reference 3700/1 was equipped with calibre 28-255 C based on a LeCoultre ébauche, a really thin automatic movement for that time. The cases were manufactured by Favre-Perret and are 120 m waterproof. The dials were hand made by Stern Freres. In 1980 Patek Philippe started to create cases and bracelets in their Ateliers Réunis workshops and the Nautilus changed its reference number to the new 3700-11. 

For a description of a reference 3700/1 in stainless steel and the calibre 28-255, see: "Patek Philippe Wristwatches" by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, 1998 edition, pages 230-231.
