Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 3800 Year 1985 (with Box & Papers)
The Patek Philippe Nautilus reference 3800 is the smaller brother of the iconic Jumbo Nautilus 3700. The 3800 was made in different dial versions of which the blue dial version with horizontal stripes is the most popular one. This present example is in a very nice honest overall condition and shows a very strong patina on the hands and indexes. Furthermore the dial color has changed to a very light baby blue, making this piece even more desirable. It is already difficult to find a good condition 3800 but this watch is being offered in a full set with the original certificate, hang tag, booklets, box and carton. A set one doesn't find very easily.
