The Jumbo Ellipse reference 3605/903 represents the largest Ellipse model ever produced and its minimalistic design is definitely exalted by the use of a two-body, solid case with snap on back in white gold and the woven integrated bracelet also in white gold. The conditions of the whole watch are remarkable but the most notable characteristic is the possibly unique factory-ordered onyx dial. The clean black color of the dial stands out even more in contact with the white case and is undoubtedly one of the best examples a collector could hope to find of this landmark model.
