Production of reference 3712 began in 2005 and ended in 2006 with the launch of ref. 5712, making it one of the shortest- produced complicated Patek in recent years. This reference may be distinguished from its successor by its straight shoulder guards, index at 7, and only 4 red dots on the power reserve. In 2006, its successor the 5712 was launched with minor design revisions as explained previously. Now available in white and pink gold, the Nautilus 5712 is still produced today and remains one of the most coveted stainless steel models produced today by the firm.

What is a Tourbillon? A Tourbillon is a regulating mechanism in which the escapement of a movement is housed within a revolving carriage. It was developed in an effort to obtain better precision. When a watch is in a vertical position, the force of gravity will speed the balance wheel as it moves in its downward (arc) direction and slow as it moves upward, creating deviation errors in the timekeeping. By placing the balance and escapement in a carriage that revolves 360o per minute, these errors become averaged and the timekeeping becomes constant and consequently adjustable. Created by Abraham Louis Breguet in 1795, the tourbillon is considered a difficult and complex achievement by any watch manufacture.
