This particular Patek Philippe Ellipse is in what we would consider "time capsule" condition. The unpolished case is mint and has a light rosiness. The original strap remains practically unworn and retains its original buckle, additionally, this watch comes with its original Patek clamshell style box, hangtag and includes an Extract from the Patek Archives.

This Patek is classic and timeless, this would be a great addition to a collection lacking a formal dress watch. This timepiece would pair great with a tuxedo or suit as it would fit perfectly under the coat sleeve and is simple yet ultimately refined.
