In the intriguing narrative of Nautilus models, it’s fascinating to revisit the introduction of the ref. 3700 in 1976, a time when the model faced challenges in finding its audience due to its perceived oversized design, a departure from the prevailing norms. Patek Philippe, adept at addressing market nuances, responded by diversifying the Nautilus family, offering options for both men and women. Men, of course, had the iconic jumbo ref. 3700 and the subsequent mid-sized ref. 3800 at their disposal, while women were presented with the smaller yet elegant ref. 4700, featuring a selection of jeweled options. Amidst this array, the ref. 3900 emerged as a rare enigma. Sporting a men’s reference number (initiating with the number 3) and equipped with a quartz movement, the ref. 3900 aimed at versatility, earning the affectionate moniker “boy-size.” Produced for a limited period from approximately 1984 to 1990, the reference showcased a diverse spectrum of dial and case variations, making it a coveted addition for collectors seeking to complete their ensemble with this elusive gem. Research suggests that nearly half of the ref. 3900 production was crafted in stainless steel, rendering the white-gold specimen presented here a rarity in its own right. The allure of this specific piece is heightened by the presence of a white dial, considered one of the rarest variants, further enhancing its desirability. In essence, the present watch in nice conditions, stands as an exceptionally appealing and sought-after timepiece, weaving a compelling chapter into the intriguing tale of Nautilus watches.
