Patek Philippe introduced reference 3712/1A in 2005 and discontinued in 2006 with the launch of reference 5712, making it one of the shortest-produced complicated Pateks in recent years. This reference may be distinguished from its successor by its straight shoulder guards, index at 7, and only 3 or 4 red dots on the power reserve. Appreciated by collectors due to its extremely short production period.
