Patek Philippe 5738/50G-024 : Golden Ellipse 5738 Kabuki Actor

Patek Philippe 5738/50G-024 description

The Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse 5738/50G-024 was launched at the 2023 Tokyo Patek Philippe exhibition. The wood marquetry dial of this limited edition of ten watches drew inspiration from an old “yakusha-e”: one of the portraits of actors skilled in the epic form of traditional Japanese theatre known as kabuki. To reproduce the kabuki actor’s spectacular performance, with its meaningful gestures and extravagant make-up and costumes, the marquetry maker cut out and assembled 207 tiny veneer parts and 53 inlays, together spanning a palette of 33 species of wood of different colors, textures and veining. The white-gold case, whose harmonious proportions were inspired by the ancient golden section, houses a caliber 240 ultra-thin self-winding movement with hours and minutes displayed by cheveu-style hands in white gold.
