The Golden Ellipse model by Philippe, launched in 1968, has the typical shape that fits perfectly to the male and female wrist. Its initial very minimalistic and extremely elegant design immediately conquered the public and became one of the most popular models on the market. The rounded rectangular shape case was designed with the influence of the “Golden Ratio”, discovered by ancient Greek mathematicians and whose “divine” proportions can be found in some of the most beautiful architectural monuments and artistic masterpieces throughout the centuries. Over the year many different versions of this model have been produced, featuring various dials and materials. A highly developed market sector was the female one which led to the creation of the specimen offered here. Small and extremely elegant, this gem perfectly adorns any feminine wrist. The integrated bracelet in white gold with a delicate geometric decoration connects with the minute case decorated with a special ring set with brilliant cut emeralds. The clean white dial with baton applied indexes is completed and further embellished by the famous retailer Gübelin, opened to the public in Lucerne since 1854.
