Catalogue Note

Designed by Gerald Genta, the reference 3700, also known as the “Jumbo” was once known as the most expensive stainless steel timepiece one can own at the time. With incredible shock-resistance and water-resistance to a depth of 396 feet (120 meters), the “Jumbo” was the avant-garde of dress watches. With strong case proportions and in lovely condition, the Jumbo is currently one of the hottest watches on the market today.
