More about Ellipse 18K YG Blue Dial W/ Deployant Buckle
Some identify the inspiration for the blue dial of the Patek Philippe 3738J Golden Ellipse as dark Egyptian Faience, and some claim it's German or Delft blue enamel. The ellipse is a hybrid form between the rectangle and the circle, engineered by Hippasus of Metapontum, the Greek mathematician who discovered the rule of the golden section around 450 B.C. It was first introduced by Patek in 1968 and it was discontinued/replaced in 2008 with a slightly larger case and different movement, as the 5738; that year the Golden Ellipse had its 40th anniversary, making the line the second oldest by Patek Philippe next to the Calatrava. The Caliber 240 ultra-thin mechanical self-winding movement has 27 jewels, 161 parts, a Gyromax balance wheel, and it oscillates at 21,600 vibrations per hour. It has a 22K gold off-center mini-rotor and a maximum power reserve of 48 hours. The dial is sunburst blue with gold applied hour markers, and it's only water resistant to 30m. The functions are hours and minutes, and the elegant simplicity is enhanced by the lack of a second hand. The crocodile leather strap has an 18K yellow gold buckle and the case is wafer-thin at 6mm. It's produced in white, yellow, and rose gold, with variant dials of brown and anthracite sunburst. This is one of Patek Philippe's most recognizable, flagship timepieces.
