For those who love to see the mechanisms, here is the Golden Ellipse Ref. 3738.

The unique feature of the movement is an offset micro rotor with solid 22k gold rotor on a ball bearing. The Golden Ellipse is a fascinating example of micro engineering.

Movement Cal. 240 is stamped with the Geneva quality mark, rhodium-plated, fausses cotes decoration, 27 jewels, straight line lever escapement, Gyromax balance adjusted for heat, cold, isochronism and 5 positions, shock absorber, self-compensating free-sprung flat balance spring.
