  • Catalogue Essay

    Slightly more petite than the ref. 3700, the Patek Philippe ref. 3800 is an incredibly compact and charming iteration of the original Nautilus Jumbo. Introduced in 1981, the present model was the medium-sized sibling within the Nautilus family, which was discontinued in 2006.

    Exceedingly well-preserved, this luxury sports watch is framed in an iconic two-tone stainless steel and yellow gold case, sporting a beautiful ceramic dial in a warm and inviting white hue. Furthermore, the yellow gold bezel has developed a layer of aesthetically pleasing patina, which demonstrates how the watch has aged gracefully with no intervention over the ravages of time. Fresh-to-the-market and part of the 3rd series from which 11 are known in such two-tone configuration, the present ref. 3800 is also accompanied by its accessories and Certificate of Origin, a fantastic addition to any collection.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
