A Patek Philippe Ellipse ref. 3748/1, A Gift From Johnny Cash

One of Patek’s most enduring styles, the Ellipse has been in production ever since 1968. These timepieces grace the wrists of thousands of Patek enthusiasts who cling to the timeless elegance of the Ellipse. Typified by an oblong shape, these watches are stunning examples of truly classic timepieces. We just received a one-of-a-kind Patek Ellipse, ref. 3748/1. It is not the solid gold bracelet and deep blue dial that sets this watch apart. Even the fact that the piece was purchased at Tiffany & Co is not enough to truly deem the piece as unique.
