Rare Patek Philippe Nautilus ref.3700 on Showcase
Three extremely rare exclusive Patek Philippe Nautilus ref.3700 have also been secured for JeweLuxe by 2ToneVintage. In its all its original glory and non-serviced parts, the Nautilus was released later than the Royal Oak by Audemars Piguet and offered a different take on the idea of a luxury sports watch, though like the Royal Oak is a steel sports watch born out of a single man’s vision – Gerald Genta.
The early 1970s was a turbulent time for the watch industry, and the concept of a luxury watch in steel was a truly revolutionary idea. In 1976, the introduction of Patek Philippe Nautilus firmly altered the direction of luxury sports watch design – offering a true competitor to Audemars Piguet’s then four-year-old Royal Oak. The reference 3700 Nautilus is often referred to as ‘Jumbo’, on account of its relatively imposing size for the period.
