  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe is always looking both to the future and their long prestigious past for inspiration. With new technology and advanced materials, they create modern masterpieces like the Advance Research collection with Silinvar® a silicon based material for their escape wheel in references like the annual calendar 5250, which is resistant to temperature change. They also return to their roots especially in design, such is the case with the reference 5098, the platinum “Chronometro Gondolo”. The oversized Art Deco-style case is a step back in to the past with a wonderfully elongated elegant timepiece. These special timepieces were originally sold through the Rio de Janeiro retailer Gondolo& Labouriau, first with pocketwatches and later to the retailer’s specifications wristwatches.

    The present example is fresh to the market and extremely well-preserved, probably having only been worn a handful of times. The watch is complete with presentation box and papers and is a wonderful reminder of Patek Philippe’s long and storied history.
