  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Patek Philippe Gondolo collection pays homage to the brand's rich heritage of craftsmanship dating back centuries. Drawing inspiration from the ornate "Chronometro Gondolo" pocket watches produced from 1872 to 1927 for the esteemed Brazilian retailer Gondolo & Labouriau, these elegant wristwatches are highly coveted by collectors for their elongated, tonneau-shaped cases.

    - The first Gondolo wristwatches debuted in the 1920s, culminating in the release of the exquisite ref. 5098 in 2007. Channeling the refined elegance of its historical predecessors, the ref. 5098 features a cambered dial with fine hand-guilloché patterns, oversized Arabic numerals, and a "Chronometro Gondolo" signature at 6 o'clock.

    - Fresh-to-the-market, this particular platinum example from 2011 has been meticulously preserved in excellent condition. Accompanied by its Extract from the Archive and presentation box, the present timepiece encapsulates Patek Philippe's enduring mastery of watchmaking and cultured design.
