Patek Philippe is a Swiss luxury watch brand that has been around since 1839. It is known for producing some of the finest timepieces in the world, and one of its most iconic watches is the Golden Ellipse.

The Golden Ellipse was introduced in 1968, and it quickly became a classic. The watch is famous for its unique shape, which is an elongated oval with rounded edges. The case is made of 18-carat yellow gold, which gives it a luxurious and elegant appearance.

The Golden Ellipse is one of Genta's most famous designs, and it embodies his design philosophy perfectly.

 Gerald Genta was a Swiss watch designer who is widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in the history of modern watch design. He was born in Geneva in 1931 and began his career as an apprentice to a jeweller before moving into the field of watch design.

Genta's designs were often characterized by bold, innovative shapes and unique features that set them apart from other watches on the market. He is credited with creating some of the most iconic watches of the 20th century, including the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, the Patek Philippe Nautilus, and of course, the Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse.
