With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 25 March 2010 and stamped by the Patek Philippe retailer in Montreux. Furthermore delivered with Patek Philippe leather-bound folder including an attestation and photograph confirming this set was designed and produced as a part of a Limited Series of 100 produced for the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of the Golden Ellipse collection with outer packaging, and with a veneered fitted presentation box with drawer and outer packaging.
In 2008, 40 years after the introduction of the initial version of its Golden Ellipse collection, Patek Philippe celebrated the 40th birthday of this legendary design with an exclusive limited edition set.
Only 100 of theses limited edition sets were created by Patek Philippe and each offered something special for both men and women. This magnificent set includes for men a platinum Golden Ellipse timepiece, Ref 5738, and matching white gold with blue center cufflinks and for women a smaller Golden Ellipse watch, Ref. 3738, with a matching 18K white gold necklace. This stunning necklace which incorporates the unique balance of the Golden Ellipse design has 69 diamonds and 29 blue sapphires. In harmonious fashion both timepieces are discreetly set with a small diamond placed between the lugs at 6 o'clock and with matching blue Crocodile straps.
The Golden Ellipse design was based and named on the golden section, a ratio discovered more than two thousand years ago. This ratio has intrigued artists and philosophers alike and is visually perceived as a perfect balance. This oval design, which combines both simplicity and purity has become one of the most recognizable creations in the Patek Philippe collection of watches.
This anniversary set meant for two is the perfect choice for people whose unity is just as balanced as the proportions of the Golden Ellipse.
