Catalogue Note

Patek Philippe produced two steel versions of the Ref. 3700.  Ref. 3700/01, produced between 1976 to about 1981 featured a straight, integrated bracelet.  The bracelet of the Ref. 3700/11 tapers slightly more.  The firm produced the Ref. 3700/11 from 1981 to 1990.  Most commonly found in stainless steel, the bi-metal steel and gold version of the Nautilus is much rarer and arguably undervalued, compared to the all-steel version. 

For a note on the Nautilus, please see lot 83.
