Another 18k yellow gold watch in Trump’s small collection is the Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse. With its refined mesh bracelet and elongated blue dial, it certainly stands out in a crowd.

The Patek Philippe Ellipse was released back in 1968 where the shape was certainly a bold departure from the usual circle everyone was used to. They used the “golden section” mathematical principle to guide the design, which results in a shape that is very pleasing to the eye. Somehow the ratio discovered by Greek mathematicians is found all over the world in art and architecture.

Vacheron Constantin has continued a passion for fine craftsmanship and enduring excellence since 1755. In blending tradition with innovation, the Swiss manufacture crafts every watch into an original work of art with a signature of technical distinction.

The last watch worth mentioning from Donald Trump is the Vacheron Constantin Historiques Ultra Fine 1968. It is a square-faced watch much like the renowned Cartier tank, although the lugs are a little different on this watch. It has an ultra-thin automatic 1120 movement which has an oscillating weight and with the Hallmark of Geneva, a rare mark in the watchmaking world.
