Catalogue Note

Fresh to the market, this Jumbo Nautilus reference 3700/001 is retailed by Tiffany & Co., the famous American retailer. According to Mstanga and his recent studies on this reference, the Tiffany stamp, which was applied on the dial by The Henri Stern Agency in New York, is considered the Type 1 signature. It is not known exactly how many Jumbo Nautilus are retailed by Tiffany & Co., however they are incredibly hard to come by. This example is in very attractive original condition and still retains its original bracelet with Nautilus clasp. The case still retains its original proportions and lines and the watch is in very attractive condition.
