Dimepiece Patek Philippe Ellipse

Regular price $14,995 USD

A solid eighteen carat yellow gold Patek Philippe Ellipse model on its original solid eighteen carat gold integrated band. This elegant timepiece is an example of Patek quality and elegance at its finest. This very clean and soft oval design is said to originate from the “golden ratio” derived by ancient Greek mathematicians. Introduced into the Patek line in 1968, it still remains a very popular reference today, offered in a number of sizes, dial colors and configurations. This smaller, ladies mechanical movement watch on the bracelet is a rare iteration of the reference.

The dial is a glorious metallic navy blue characteristic of the Ellipses found in larger case sizes. The printing of the “Patek” name and “Swiss” at the foot of the dial are all in white serif font, which pops off the dial. The dial is in perfect, original condition. The hands are very simple with a clean gold pencil design. There was never any luminous material applied to the dial, as is consistent with watches of this elegant design. The watch is powered by a stunning – and very small – mechanical caliber 16-250 manual wind movement. This movement was found in the majority of Patek’s ladies watches from this period.

This piece would have been designed toward the mid/end of the 1970s. The case and bracelet are in excellent condition throughout and are presented unpolished with the 18k gold mark still present on the case back. Overall, this is a very beautiful and very rare watch. If you are looking for something refined, elegant and striking, it is difficult to think of a better piece. On the bracelet, this watch has a jewelry-like quality, driving home its stylish versatility.
