Patek Philippe patek philippe golden ellipse 50th anniversary replica watch made its biggest splashes in this year’s Baselworld with fresh variants on its sportiest see versions, the Nautilus and Aquanaut. On the dressier side, rather than to be overlooked, the Genevan manufacture also unveiled two new versions of its Golden Ellipse, Patek’s second oldest present model (behind the Calatrava), which celebrates its 50th anniversary this season.
Launched in 1968, the original Golden Ellipse demanded focus on its quirky elliptical instance, a hybrid of an oval and a rectangle, whose proportions, Patek states, were influenced from the so-called”gold section” discovered by early Greek mathematicians and whose”celestial” proportions prompted numerous architectural and artistic masterpieces throughout centuries. That very first version, with a shimmering blue-and-gold dial and a manually wound movement, eventually begat an entire collection of Golden Ellipses that from the late 1970s surrounded 65 different references, including a Nautilus version and several high-jewelry models for women.
1 version (Ref. The crown is set with an onyx cabochon echoing the color of their enamel dial, and a diamond set in the caseband at 6 o’clock marks this piece as a member of Patek Philippe golden ellipse vintage fake watches‘ exclusive platinum set. The solid caseback is decorated with the commemorative engraving,”Ellipse d’Or 1968 — 2018.”
The other new, unlimited version (Ref. 5738R-001), comes within an 18k rose gold case with exactly the same dimensions and height as the platinum version (only 2.53 mm thick) and includes a clean, sunburst-finish black enamel dial with hands and hour appliqués in rose gold. The two timepieces are powered with the above, self-winding Caliber 240, an ultra-thin manufacture quality with an 18k gold microrotor plus a minimum 48-hour power book; both come mounted on shiny black alligator straps using prong buckles in case-matching materials. Rates are $90,722 for the platinum limited edition — which also has a set of white-gold, black enameled cuff links with a volutepattern fitting the dial’s — and $30,846 for the rose-gold version.
