We do not have supportive proof for the first watch, but in Switzerland, the first watch came from Patek Philippe in 1868 when Patek Philippe made the first chronograph for the Hungary duchess Koscowicz. Since then, Patek Philippe laid a good foundation for its future, and started a new chapter. As the pocket watch has born advantages, many watch producers began to developing wrist watch, and then the original wrist watch was the one that connects a lug on the case, and put a strap on it, then a wrist watch is built. It is not until Patek Philippe released the first wrist watch, the real wrist watch come to exist. In 1968, it was right the 100 anniversary of the first wrist watch, as luxury replica watches, Patek Philippe released its golden Ellipe, and it was wore in hand, bringing another revolution to this industry.
For the Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse Series–5738P-001, movement decides a watch’s quality. Patek Philippe sticks to its creed and builds the perfect chronograph. Since its foundation, Patek Philippe sticks to the traditional Geneva watch producing skills and also adopts advanced technology to invent or design movement structure, like simultaneous jumping perpetual calendar. While improving the quality of movement, it looks beautiful as well. Patek Phillipe Golden Ellipse 5738P-001 applied 240 movement, the ultra-thin automatic winding movement, and winds up in single direction through a 22k golden mini-rotor. Such a structure come from a new automatic movement that is exhibited in Buren Watch in 1954. The original 240 movement measures 2.4 mm and after improvement, 240 movements increase to 2.53 mm of thickness. The old 240 movement passes the COSC and the updated 240 movement also passes COSC. Therefore, 240movement can be regarded as a classical movement among Patek Philippe movements, which offers great performance on the power reserve to make it a really worthy swiss watch!
