Patek Philippe, "Nautilus", Ref. 3700 so-called "Jumbo"
Launched in 1976, the "Jumbo" gold Nautilus Ref. 3700 was produced until about 1990.
It was made in two references; the first series, such as this example under Ref. 3700/1 J and the second series, under Ref. 3700/11.
It is recognisable by its straight bracelet and its correct Patek Philippe / Gay Frères deployant clasp.
Over its entire production span in gold, it is believed that around 1 500 pieces were made and this example stands out by its overall state of preservation and what is ever more impressive is the presence on the outer case-back of two gold hallmarks that are almost always worn or polished away indicating very little wear.
