  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Gondolo collection showcases Patek Philippe's most remarkable watches, characterized by their elegant case designs. These timepieces embody the essence of the art deco style, which coincided with a remarkable era for Patek Philippe. With their clean lines, timeless appeal, and geometric simplicity, the Gondolo watches offer a contemporary interpretation of this iconic design trend.

    - The current model, ref. 5489, stands out with its unique trapezoid shape, a rarity in the world of horology, with a comparable example being the La Dona from Cartier. The case is meticulously crafted, featuring distinct edges and bevels that add depth and visual aesthetics. On the other hand, maintaining a square dial enhances the watch's symmetry, creating a harmonious and balanced visual impact with the classic Roman numerals.

    - Thanks to its slender profile, the timepiece sits comfortably on the wrist and is complete with the Certificate of Origin and accessories. The guilloche dial adds an extra touch of elegance, making it an ideal choice for a charming dress watch.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
