The 3710 was introduced in 1998 as the first Nautilus with an additional complication next to the time and date.

The complication that is referred to is the power reserve indicator placed - but not perfectly aligned - under the 12-hour position. Because of the position of this complication the brand name was moved to the 6-hour position. Thanks to the imbalanced dial the watch has a unique charm. The dial design was greatly inspired by the evolved version of the 3800 that was introduced in 1996. Instead of the blue dial with horizontal embossed bars the dial became plain and black. The baton index was replaced by 18k white-gold Roman hour markers with a railroad minute track. The 3710 also presented a comeback of the 'Jumbo' case as the 3700 was discontinued in 1990.

The 3710 features the iconic 40 mm stainless steel Gerald Genta designed octagonal case and integrated bracelet as the original Nautilus. The example we have on offer is in immaculate condition as it is unworn. The watch dates back to 2006 and comes as a full set.

Introduction

Patek Philippe NautilusPatek Philippe has always been a watch brand for the lucky few as they are the creator of the most exclusive timepieces in the world. They made mechanical masterpieces to fit the exquisite gentleman or elegant lady, mainly out of precious metal. But after the success of the Royal Oak from Audemars Piguet, designed by the famous Gerald Genta, Patek had to go overboard and create a steel sports watch of their own.The Nautilus, named after a Submariner, first saw light in 1976 and it was being advertised as a watch that worked equally well with a wet suit as with a dinner suit. Being the most expensive steel sports watch when it was launched; it was interesting to see how it would pan out. Another great success was added to Mr. Genta and Patek Philippe’s history. Eversince they made a whole bunch of variations in different materials, dial colour and layouts. All having in common that 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. Another cool feature can be found on the dial as all of them are strongly characterized by horizontal embossed bars.
