Today's offering showcases this handsome and classic Audemars Piguet mens Golden Ellipse watch in gorgeous original condition.
It features the renowned ellipse design that Patek Philippe helped popularize.

It has 100% original parts down to the dial, hands, and crown and presents as about a 9.7 out of 10. Its 18K gold case presents as mint with clear stamping. Its dial is original and perfect. Its Audemars Piguet mechanism is very clean.
A Master Watchmaker has freshly overhauled the movement, which is keeping very accurate time.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
