Among all Patek’s 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. First saw light in 1976 and it has being advertised as a watch that worked equally well with a wet suit as with a dinner suit. Coming from yet another great idea by Gerald Genta 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. The present Nautilus is a superb representative of the exceedingly rare reference 3710/1A, launched in 1998 and discontinued in 2006, with the addition of the sweep center seconds and a power reserve indicator. Its stainless steel case features a beautiful bezel ad the bracelet as well is preserved perfectly which has developed a nice patina, giving the watch a lot of character. Featuring polished white-gold Roman numbers as hour markers, filled with luminous material, a mat black dial without the characteristic ribbing found on earlier models, and a delicate and somewhat abstract power reserve. Preserved in excellent overall condition, this further enhances its overall appeal and rendering it a highlight for the collector of rare timepieces. Moreover this watch is offered here with its original box, Booklets and Certificate of Origin confirming the materials, reference, case and caliber.
