The story of the Nautilus goes back to 1976. But the model has known many variations. The reference 5712 was launch in 2006, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Nautilus. It succeeded to the reference 3712 which was released in 2005 and produced for less than a year. Featuring a power reserve, a date, and a moon phases indication, the model stood as the most complicated Nautilus wristwatch until 2018, when the reference 5740 was introduced. Models produced after 2009 are equipped with a caliber 240 stamped with the Patek Philippe seal – and not anymore the Poinçon de Genève, meaning Geneva seal.
