Fine and very rare stainless steel cushion shaped self-winding wristwatch with date. The dial is beginning to go tropical with a warm brownish-yellow hue. Signed dial and movement.
Patek Philippe produced two versions of the Nautilus ref 3700 in steel, 3700/01 from 1976 to about 1981 that featured a straight bracelet and reference 3700/11 which was in production from 1981 to 1990 has a tapered steel bracelet.

According to Patek Philippe e-mail (in attachment), the movement has been changed in the past, reason why the extract from the Archives can’t be delivered.
