Patek Philippe Ellipse Jumbo 18k 1998

Originally debuted in 1968, the Golden Ellipse model designed by Patek Philippe has transcended the formality of employing only traditional shaped wristwatches. Its bold case design of balancing between roundness and rectangularity have led to what watch connoisseurs consider as a golden ratio.

Our reference 3738 / 117J, also known as the Jumbo model comes in outstanding condition and a stunning blue sigma sunburst dial with the Patek Philippe automatic Cal. 240 including the original box and papers. Icing on the cake is the integrated 18k yellow gold bracelet.
