Catalogue Note

The presently offered lot, known as the 'Jumbo' model, is the largest of the vintage Nautilus series. Ref. 3700 was launched in 1976 and was designed by Gerald Genta; its final official listing was in the 1986 Patek Philippe catalogue. 

As noted in the Extract from the Archives, the case was replaced by Patek Philippe in 1984 during a service.

Ref. 3700 is illustrated in Huber, M. & Banbery, A., Patek Philippe Wristwatches, Second Edition, pp. 231-232.
