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.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the design, which was conceived using a the timeless golden ratio in your mind, Patek is presenting a new rose gold”Jumbo” version with a 34.5mm x 39.5millimeter case and an ebony black sunburst dial. This new version of the larger format Reference 5738 joins the already existing platinum version that was launched 10 years ago for the watch’s 40th anniversary. Inside is the ultra-thin caliber 240 with micro-rotor. The motion measures only 2.53mm from top to bottom, allowing the watch itself to come along with a total elevation of only under 6mm.

Like a lot of younger watch enthusiasts (I am still youngish, right?) , I have long seen the Patek Philippe golden ellipse 50th anniversary 5738 replica watch as type of an old man’s watch, but this larger format variation, which measures only south of 40mm from top to bottom along with a hair beneath 35mm across, appeals to me in a manner I hadn’t really expected. Perhaps the purported timelessness of the Golden Ratio is something which I needed to grow into. The heat of this watch’s rose gold case is actually nicely tempered with the black sunray dial and the onyx set within the crown.
