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.
