Catalogue Note

The now-iconic Ellipse line was introduced in 1968. The firm continues to have great success with this instantly recognizable form, the proportions of which are based on an ancient mathematical ratio called the Golden Section.

For further discussion on the Ellipse and reproductions of original advertisements, see Reardon, J. Patek Philippe in America, pp. 268-9 and 290.
