  • Catalogue Essay

    Since the debut of the Nautilus Jumbo in 1976, the phenomenon of the model is truly one of the most celebrated luxury sports model of all time. It has now been 45 years since its inception, and throughout its production, the lineage has gracefully matured into a vast family of the nautical inspired timepiece.

    Through the 1980s and early 1990s, Patek Philippe experimented with case materials, sizes, and dial designs upon the time and date only appearance. This began to change in the historical timeline of the reference in the introduction of the present ref. 3710 in 1998. Remained in production until 2005, the ref. 3710 was the first to include the display of the power reserve below the 12 o’clock hour marker. Dubbed by collectors as the “comet tail”, the “tail” being placed on a rotating disc and once the movement fully wound the disc would continue rotating, indicating that the winding mechanism was disconnected from the main barrel. Modestly sized at the same 42mm diameter as the very first Jumbo Nautilus, the ref. 3710 sports in a black attire with applied luminous Roman numerals with luminous that gives the model extra personality amongst its siblings.

    Presented in excellent overall condition, the ref. 3710 definitely deserves the growing attention it is receiving as it is one of the rarer and lesser seen “Jumbo” Nautilus models.
