We are delighted to be offering this very special Patek Philippe White Gold Ellipse Grand FEU Black Enamel Reference 5738/518G-001. We believe it is the only example currently for sale in the open market.
Technical Details And Description
Since 1839, Patek Philippe has focused on showcasing the most complicated wristwatches, which embody an individual and distinguished elegance. First seen in 1968 the golden ellipse family quickly developed a cult status amongst gentlemen and ladies with the tactical and striking elliptical-shaped case being inspired by the ancient principle of the 'Golden Section'.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II owns a blue dial Golden Ellipse model that can be seen worn in a 1984 portrait by the photographer Yousuf Karsh. The 34.5 x 39.5mm case gleams in hand-polished white gold, has an elegant presence on the wrist and is defined by a crown set with a midnight black onyx cabochon. Patek Philippe has truly mastered the combination of fine watchmaking and rare artisanship, which can be seen displayed in the expert hand-engraved black enamel dial. The gleaming polished white gold dial plate contrasts superbly with the midnight black Grand Feu enamel decoration and showcases a rich pattern of volute, arabesque and flower forms inspired by vintage firearm decoration. Patek Philippe has kept alive the skill of hand engraving and is proud to showcase this incredible art form on several of its special pieces.
A gloss black alligator strap with a prong buckle completes this eye-catching model. The 5738/51G-001 houses the self-winding movement (calibre 240), which has a minimum power reserve of 48 hours.
This is such a special piece to be worn and enjoyed the 5738/51G-001 perfectly embodies the slogan, “you never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.”
This exclusive Nautilus is accompanied by all its factory original accessories inclusive of inner and outer boxes, manuals, leather document holder, and dated guarantee certificate.
