Designed by Gerald Genta and launched by Patek Philippe in 1976, the Nautilus is one of the most important watch designs of the 20th Century. For the first two decades of its history, the porthole-inspired case of the Nautilus sports watch only housed simple time and date dials. But that all changed in 1998 when Patek Philippe presented the Nautilus 3710/1A with a power reserve indicator. Along with the power reserve indicator, the black dial features Roman numeral hour markers and a date window. The 3710 also brought back the “Jumbo” 42 mm case size of the inaugural 3700 rather than the mid-size 37.5mm cases that had taken over the Nautilus lineup. Patek phased out the Nautilus 3710/1A in 2005, making this piece a rare example from a relatively limited production run, which paved the way for future Nautilus models with complications.
