A truly stunning 1970's ladies Patek Philippe Ellipse in a heavy solid 18k yellow gold case and bracelet with stunning deep blue dial and high grade calibre 16-250 movement within.  I absolutely love the design of this timepiece, the subtle, elegant form of the main case along with its highly detailed and beautifully crafted bracelet. The blue dial is also something very special, a colour you will only find in these rare Ellipse models, highlighted by those sharp baton markers and matching dauphine style hands.  A timeless design from one of the most famous makers in history.
