    With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 16 December 2005, original sales tag, fitted black presentation box and outer packaging.

    Reference 3712 was in production from 2005 to 2006 and was replaced by reference 5712, released in October 2006 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the celebrated "Nautilus" collection.

    The present watch, never been offered in public before, is from the first series of ref. 3712, featuring only three red markers in the power reserve display. Later examples including its successor, reference 5712, were made with an increased number of four red indications.
