Patek Philippe Nautilus 3800/ 1A

In 1996, Patek Philippe drastically redesigned the dial of the Nautilus 3800 – an here you can see the first attempt of a strong evolution of the model. While using the same case and movement than the traditional 3800, the 1996 edition introduced a brand new dial. No more grooves, the dial was plain, matte and black. No more baton indexes, Patek decided to go for traditional Roman numerals – still filled with luminous paint (sports watch obliged). This version also introduced a rail-road minute track on the edge of the dial. No more baton hands either, the 1996 Ref. 3800 Roman Numerals was using leaf hands. Every aspect of the dial was here removed or updated, creating a breaking with the 20 first years of production.
