Patek Philippe has always been a watch brand for the lucky few as they are the creator of the most exclusive timepieces in the world. Among these incredible masterpieces, in the last years there is one which has gained a really special place in people’s heart thanks to its unique design: the Nautilus. Be it for a woman or a man, with complications or time-only, this model is now one of the most appreciated of all the history of horology. The Nautilus first saw light in 1976, coming from yet another great idea by Gerald Genta who firstly drew this iconic model while he was eating in a restaurant. It has been realized in many different materials and with many complications, all having in common the shape of the case looks like a porthole with protruding “ears” on each side of the case and with an eight-sided, curved bezel. This particular model offered here is a very rare and unusual reference 3700/4 realized in platinum with bracelet and quartz movement. The conditions of preservation of the whole watch are extremely nice and to add further appeal to a model already extremely sought after in recent years is the precious bezel made of brilliant-cut diamonds. The union of diamonds with the platinum structure of the entire watch gives more preciousness to a simply perfect object for a woman’s wrist. The black dial with horizontal channels with which this 3700/4 is equipped is a classic for a Nautilus but the eleven diamond indexes for the hours are a feature that is very difficult to find. This watch si sold with the Certificat D’Origine confirming its production with 44 diamonds 0.40 ct and 56 diamonds 0.26 ct.
