1968 has been a very special year for watch enthusiasts as Patek Philippe launched one of its most quintessential collections- the Golden Ellipse. This collection is characterized by its unique and remarkable elliptical shape based on the golden section, which is a ratio subjected to studies of both artists and mathematicians for more than 2,000 years. Patek Philippe has beautifully applied this concept to create visual harmonious proportions or balance to the human eye.
Among the pieces in this treasured collection is the stunning Patek Philippe 3738/100G-012. The watch perfectly captures the marriage between ancient and modern true to the core principles of the Golden Ellipse collection.
