Patek Philippe Nautilus 3800/1

While the whole world is looking for a steel 5711, Amsterdam Vintage Watches has something nicer for offer. And… at a friendlier price. 

We’re referring to the steel 3800/1 we have in stock right now. A true marvelous work of art! This timepiece is the first evolution of Gerald Genta’s iconic 3700. The ref. 3800 was introduced in 1981 as the smaller version (the perfect case size of 37,5mm) of its 42mm-measuring big brother. This watch was marketed as a ‘luxury sport watch’ and is well-known for its porthole-looking case design and integrated bracelet. Patek Philippe did not only adjust the case size, but also the mechanics. The 3800 was the first Patek Philippe Nautilus with an in-house, automatic watch movement: the caliber 335 SC, in which SC stands for seconde centrale. The piece we can offer you, dear customers, dates back to ’83 and is in neat condition. This timepiece has the characertisic, grooved dial in the colour blue (or as Patek Philippe referred to it: grey depth of ocean). This example comes with the extract from the archives.
