PATEK PHILIPPE, REF. 3605, JUMBO ELLIPSE, elegant, self-winding, 18k Yellow Gold wristwatch with date. The Ellipse is one of Patek Philippe's best known designs that has lasted through decades and is still being manufactured today. The present reference was launched in 1971 and was the first Ellipse with the automatic calibre 28-255 C which was later also used in the Nautilus reference 3700. It remains, thanks to its substantial size, the largest of the older 'vintage' Ellipse models and one of a few to have a date display as well. This Example accompanied with Original Certificate of Origin and Box, and by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives .
