Review: The New High Quality Swiss Replica Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse Ref. 5738/1R Watches UK

The fine wristwatch market is one that is highly conservative where form is concerned. A quick look at history suggests that AAA UK replica watches that aren’t round either become forgotten eventually or – for a handful – become an icon that transcends eras, strangely with very little middle ground. Given the risk, it’s no surprise that the industry is, and has always been, dominated by round watches. Take for example: Patek Philippe’s oldest model name and flagship model is none other than the now-almost-centurion Calatrava, the prototypical round dress watch, the ever-prevailing industry standard for round watches. But what if I told you that the second oldest Patek Philippe model still in production is a non-round wristwatch? No, it’s not the Nautilus or the Aquanaut – it’s the Golden Ellipse.

One might be tempted to think that the Golden Ellipse could not have arrived at a worse moment in history. Quite the contrary, it was born at the perfect time, in 1968, to help redefine Patek Philippe and the fine watchmaking industry. In the advent of hyper-accurate quartz cheap 1:1 fake watches and cheap mass production, the Golden Ellipse was heralded as an exclusive ‘non-watch’ and an object of class and long-term value. With its novel ovoid shape and the championing of the Golden Section in its design philosophy, the Golden Ellipse forged its own path by simultaneously resisting current trends and breaking free from the traditional dress watch mold.

Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse Ref. 5738/1R

Fast forward to today and the Golden Ellipse remains not just a Patek Philippe staple but also an ageless icon. This notion is further strengthened with the release of a new Golden Ellipse at Watches & Wonders Geneva this year. Here, we bring you the details and our honest opinion on what could arguably be Patek Philippe’s best novelty piece this year, the perfect replica Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse Ref. 5738/1R watches.

The Case, Dial, and Hands

The essence of the Golden Ellipse is in its case. Straddled between a circle and a rectangle, the harmoniously proportioned elliptical case is inspired by the Golden Section, an aesthetic rule that continues to form the basis of some of history’s greatest works of art and architecture. The Ref. 5738/1R measures 34.5 mm x 39.5 mm, with a thickness of only 5.9 mm, making it one of Patek Philippe’s slimmest copy watches for sale. It is rendered in rose gold, including the solid case back, and has a water resistance rating of up to 30 m. The cherry on top of the cake is the crown that’s set with a black onyx cabochon, a deliberate choice to match the equally mesmerising dial.

Executed in ebony black with sunburst pattern, the highlight of the dial is in its purity and simplicity. Nothing that is unneeded for time-telling save for the brand signature is present. Ever elegant, Patek Philippe’s latest Golden Ellipse utilises applied baton hour markers and cheveu hands to indicate the hours and minutes. There is no seconds or even a minutes track, in order to preserve the pristiness of the dial.

From the time of its first debut to the early 1980s, the best 2024 replica Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse watches came not only on leather straps but also on several types of bracelets such as the milanais and polonais. With the Ref. 5738/1R, chain bracelets are making a comeback on the Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse fake watches shop and they are better than ever before. The new 18K rose gold bracelet is precisely manufactured and hand-polished throughout. All 363 parts, including 300 links, are hand-assembled, one by one. The clasp – with its cover engraved with the Calatrava cross and motif resembling the links – offers the choice of three adjustment notches, allowing the length of the bracelet to be shortened or lengthened on the fly. It goes without saying that the bracelet is as supple on the wrist as it looks.

The Movement

Driving the Golden Ellipse Ref. 5738/1R is the tried-and-tested Calibre 240. Even describing the Calibre 240 as “tried-and-tested” is understating it given that the calibre powers hundreds of Swiss made Patek Philippe super clone watches references, past and present. The movement’s ultra-thin profile of only 2.53 mm is what allows the Ref. 5738/1R to be the thinnest wristwatch in the brand’s regular collection. It features a mini-rotor that allows for automatic winding, has a minimum power reserve of 48 hours and operates at 3 Hz frequency.

From a finishing perspective, the Calibre 240 is adorned in accordance to the exacting requirements of the Patek Philippe Seal. Sure, there are better looking, more interesting movements in the brand’s arsenal, but the workshorse Calibre 240 remains attractive and sets the standard. The usual decorative techniques can be seen through sapphire crystal case back: Geneva waves on the bridges, polished bevels on edges, perlage on the main plate, and polished screw heads, among other things.
