c. 1965 Patek Philippe Ellipse Mens Watch, Ref. 3546 - 18K White Gold

Patek Philippe

Item No. 7971

Today's offering showcases this beautiful mens Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse in 18K white gold with royal blue dial. Featuring Patek's renowned ellipse design, it showcases a slender and elegant style.

Originally made with a bracelet this one has been previously expertly converted to a fixed lug design.

Powering the watch is its illustrious Patek Philippe 10 ligne movement, stamped in two places with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, unquestionably among the finest hand-winding movements ever built.

With the exception of the converted lugs, it otherwise has fully Patek Philippe parts down to the hands and winding crown.

It has just finished a true expertly done restoration. Its case presents as mint. Its original dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Patek factory done even under magnification.

As part of the restoration the extremely high-grade movement has been freshly fully overhauled by a Master Watchmaker. For the finishing touch we have installed a new band making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
