Why We Love It
The Nautilus is without question one of the great horological icons of the 1970s, and has in recent years once again become one of the most in-demand timepiece models on the planet.
Collectors and prospectors alike are clamoring to get their hands on Genta's second great luxury sports watch, and with the recent news of the discontinuation of their current collection steel model - the legendary Reference 5711 - this dramatic rise shows no signs of slowing down.
This full size 'Jumbo' Nautilus, a Reference 3700/1 features a 40mm steel and 18k yellow gold case with matching integrated bracelet, Patek Philippe Calibre 28-355 C automatic movement, and a classic blue tapestry dial in breathtaking condition. Purchased from a colleague who acquired it from the original owner, we treated this special piece to an extensive professional case and bracelet refinishing performed by our friends at LA Watch Works, along with a movement overhaul.
This exquisite piece also comes complete with its Certificate of Origin and a matching Extract From The Archives of Patek Philippe, confirming production in 1979 and an original sale date of December 8th, 1980.
The Nautilus - in any of its variations - is a very special thing. But very few of them remain in the condition we see here.
Truly, truly outstanding!
The Patek Philippe Story
Founded in 1839, Patek Philippe is one of the oldest watch manufacturers in the world with an uninterrupted watchmaking history. Few luxury brands in the world carry the gravitas of their name, and for good reason. The firm's commitment to excellence in horological manufacture is unflinching, and their track record of innovation in design without peer. They continue to lead the industry, and even their fiercest competitors have nothing but the utmost respect for the company.
Owning a Patek Philippe is for many the ultimate goal of timepiece collecting, and for a certain type, the only timepieces they collect. Whichever way you look at it, there is no questioning the elegance of design, superlative manufacture of their cases and movements, or the sheer elegance and emotion that comes from owning one.
Of course for a brand that is steeped in heritage, we are told ‘You never actually own a Patek Philippe…”
Well, you know the rest.
