Patek Philippe Ellipse d´Or
All models belonging to the Patek Philippe Ellipse d´Or are comprised of a distinctive elliptical shape that is based on the Golden Section. Dating as far back as ancient times, artists have been inspired by the Golden Section and utilised the ratio in order to achieve well-balanced and aesthetically pleasing results in their works. However, the Golden Section is not only practiced in pieces of art. The Golden Section is also applied in mathematics, physics, astrophysics, and biology. It appears everywhere in nature as can be seen in the spiral arrangements of plant leaves and flower structures.
During the Renaissance, the Golden Section was interpreted as the "divine proportion" as it was witnessed in forms of nature and the human body. The human form itself is believed to be based on the Golden Section, as demonstrate by Leonardo da Vinci in "The Vitruvian Man".
