  • Catalogue Essay

    The Gondolo Collection epitomizes Patek Philippe's rich heritage of craftsmanship spanning centuries. Drawing inspiration from the ornate "Chronometro Gondolo" pocket watches produced for the eminent Brazilian retailer Gondolo & Labouriau from 1872 to 1927, these stately timepieces are coveted by collectors for their elongated, tonneau-shaped cases.

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

    This platinum example from circa 2009 is the 40th known example and preserved in excellent condition, complete with original certificate and presentation box. An enduring emblem of Patek Philippe's time-honored legacy, ref. 5098 encapsulates the maison's mastery of watchmaking and cultured design spanning generations.

  • 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.
