The Nautilus Moon Phase Ref. 3712 is a sports watch by Patek Philippe, introduced in 2005 and retired in 2006 with the introduction of the new Nautilus 5712/1.

This is the single-year moon phase version of the original Nautilus from the first generation of the Nautilus family.

Info

Like the rest of the Patek Philippe Nautilus family, Ref. 3712 has the well-known integrated and water-tight "porthole" case penned by Gérald Genta.

Introduced in 2005, the Nautilus Ref. 3712 was the first real complicated Nautilus. It includes a power reserve indicator inside the 11:00 position on the dial like the 3710/1A but adds a subdial with date pointer and moon phase. This watch uses the Cal. 240 PS automatic movement with a micro rotor and is the first Nautilus model to include a sapphire crystal on the back so the movement can be viewed.

The Nautilus Ref. 3712 is highly sought-after today because it lasted in production for only one model year, 2005, before the entire line was replaced in 2006 by the new Nautilus 5712/1.
