GOOD AS GOLD
Even after half a century, the Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse still cuts a dashing and distinctive figure in a horological world dominated by circular forms. It is powered by the ultra-thin automatic Calibre 240. The shape of this white gold watch – which measures 35.6mm in length and 33.7mm in width – is inspired by the Golden Section, a ratio discovered by mathematicians in ancient Greece that’s supposed to give rise to harmonious, pleasing forms. We can’t disagree.
