Patek Philippe created its biggest splashes in this year’s Baselworld with fresh variations on its sportiest watch models, the Nautilus and Aquanaut. On the dressier side, and not to be overlooked, the Genevan manufacture also unveiled two new variants of its Golden Ellipse, Patek Philippe ellipse history imitation ‘s second oldest present model (supporting the Calatrava), which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse Ref. 5738R-001
Launched in 1968, the original Golden Ellipse demanded focus on its own elliptical case, a hybrid of an oval and a rectangle, whose proportions, Patek says, were affected from the so-called”golden section” discovered by early Greek mathematicians and whose”divine” proportions prompted numerous architectural and artistic masterpieces throughout the centuries. That very first model, with a shimmering blue-and-gold dial and a manually wound movement, finally begat an whole collection of Golden Ellipses that by the late 1970s encompassed 65 unique references, including a version and several high-jewelry models for women. The collection’s first self-winding movements began appearing in 1977, with the introduction of this ultra-thin, micro-rotor Caliber 240. Patek Philippe ellipse vintage replica watch has unveiled two new Golden Ellipse timepieces, only limited, another portion of the regular collection, to indicate this historical watch’s semicentennial.
One model (Ref. 5738/50P-001, limited to 100 pieces) comes at a 34.5 mm x 39.5 millimeter platinum instance, using an 18k gold black enameled dial with cheveu-style satin-finished white gold palms sweeping over a hand-engraved volute motif in white gold inspired by Patek Philippe ellipse white gold replica watches‘ Calatrava cross emblem. The crown is set with an onyx cabochon echoing the colour of their enamel dial, and a diamond set in the caseband in 6 o’clock marks this bit for a member of Replica Patek Philippe watches‘ exclusive platinum collection.
