Patek Philippe is a watch manufacturer founded in Geneva in 1839.
We make uncompromising watches by making the most of our overwhelming quality and technical capabilities.
Together with Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, it is known as one of the world's three major brands, or the Big 3, and it is no exaggeration to say that it has established a special position among them.
In addition to continuing to be the world's top manufacturer, the number of watches produced is extremely small, so it can be said that this brand is synonymous with luxury watches.
The independence of family business and the reliability that all watches can be repaired create value as assets that can be passed down from generation to generation.
This watch is part of the Golden Ellipse collection.
Ellipse, which is a fusion of a circle and a rectangle. It is
The 'golden ratio', also known as the 'sacred ratio', can be found to this day in some of the greatest works of architecture and painting.
The Golden Ellipse, which was first announced in 1968, had a big impact with its design, which was completely different from the round and rectangular cases that had come before.
The case material is 18K white gold. The width is 27 mm and the height is 32 mm, but because it is oval, it does not look as big as the numbers, giving the impression of a small size.
The dial is a silver dial with a sunray finish. Speaking of Golden Ellipse, I think that the image of a yellow gold case with a blue dial is strong.
Among them, the combination of the silver system is quite rare. It is a condition that you can feel the aging in good condition.
The needle is a pencil hand, and the index is a bar hand. You can see aging like the dial.
Also, there is a σ (sigma) mark on both sides of SWISS at 6 o'clock on the dial.
This is a notation that can be seen on watches from around 1973 to around 2000 made by a manufacturer that belonged to the group APRIOR. Indicates that the

Therefore, it is highly regarded among collectors as a rarity.
The equipped movement is a hand-wound Cal.23-300.
Cal.10-200 is the thinnest caliber that has adopted the gyromax balance, making it the thinnest Patek model 10 (23mm in diameter).
It has a reputation for its high degree of perfection, and the fact that it has been used for about 22 years since its first appearance in 1956 proves it.
The strap has been replaced with a new one at Patek Philippe.
A genuine WG buckle is also included.

Our stance is that "customers can use good products with peace of mind for a long time."
In order to achieve this, the presence of a skilled repair craftsman is essential.
How well the work is done depends largely on the thoughts of the craftsman.
The watchmakers who Arbitro asks are craftsmen who do not cut corners in such areas, so we ask them to carry out the repair work with peace of mind.
About Complete Service
Complete service, sometime called overhaul is the work of disassembling a mechanical product down to its individual parts, cleaning and reassembling it to bring it closer to its new state of performance.
Roughly speaking, the overhaul procedure is as follows.
1. Separate into case and movement
2. Disassemble the movement
3. Inspection and pre-cleaning of wear condition of each part
4. Wash parts with a special machine
5. Lubrication and assembly
6. Waterproof test
7. Final adjustment and running test.
Some movements are made up of hundreds of parts, but it is a very meticulous process of disassembling them one by one, inspecting them all, cleaning them, and reassembling them.
If you don't overhaul, the oil will deteriorate just like a car, and the risk of wear and damage to parts increases, causing a decrease in accuracy and, in severe cases, not working.
There is also the reason that it will be very expensive to replace parts after they are found to be damaged, so we recommend overhauling once every 2-3 years for economical and long-term use.
Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has rounded corners that were originally sharp, and has many small scratches even though the mirror finish should be beautiful. state.
At Arbitro, some watches are sold with a new finish, based on the idea that you can purchase them in beautiful condition and use them for a long time.
In particular, gold-cased dress watches are finished to bring out the best of the precious metal case.
The watches sold by us that have been given a new finish are shot in very high definition, so you can see that the edges stand out and the light is reflected by the mirror finish.
Also, depending on the case or bracelet, there are cases where multiple finishes such as mirror finish and hairline finish are mixed, but there are not many craftsmen who can distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.
In addition, the “thinness of the case” is also a part that is greatly influenced by the skill of the craftsman.
A watch that has become thinner and has thinner lugs is far from its original design, and the appearance becomes unbalanced.
It is a very precise work that brings the case closer to the original finish by eliminating scratches and dents while reducing the thickness of the case to the utmost limit.
Of course, there are cases where it is better to use the watch as it is, in order to emphasize the history of the watch and its original condition.
We look at each watch and judge whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
