  • Catalogue Essay

    The Gondolo Calendario ref. 5135 was launched in 2004, exemplifying the beauty of the Art Deco era, the tonneau-shaped model with elegant proportions was first released in white and yellow gold, followed by pink gold and the final iteration in platinum in 2006 like the present example. This modern interpretation is fitted with a caliber 324, incorporating the patented annual calendar function that automatically advances the month, day and date and only requires manual correction once a year on the 1st of March. The ref. 5135P is perhaps one of the most luxurious iterations of the reference. Cased in platinum, two delicate details lies on the slate grey sunburst dial that sets it apart from its regular counterparts. Decorated with subtle elegance, the 3 and 9 o’clock markers are adorned with diamonds which complements the cool hue of the dial. The reference was in production until 2011, now discontinued and with only 15 pieces reappearing in the auction market since its launch, the present example offered in attractive condition is accompanied with its Certificate of Origin and full set of accessories.

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.
