PATEK PHILIPPE ROSE GOLD JUMBO ELLIPSE REF. 5738R
The Patek Philippe Ellipse was ‘born’ in 1968 and has been a celebrated icon of Patek Philippe ever since. Its design is inspired by the Golden Section, the ‘divine’ proportion of the ratio 1 to 1.6181 which is the founding design principle seen in art, architecture and nature. This model is the modern interpretation of the Ellipse. The jumbo-sized ref. 5738 in rose gold with black dial was released in 2018 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Ellipse. Fitted with an automatic caliber 240, this massive watch is comfortable to wear as a dress watch, or with jeans. This pre-owned example is mint and complete with box and papers.
