Back in 1872, Patek Philippe sent an 18-Ligne silver pocket watch on the Rio-based jewellers Carlos Gondolo and Paulo Labouriau, setting a relationship which could last until 1927. It had been an adroit movement, and while Europe fought with years and a world war, Gondolo & Labouriau retailed near a third of the full creation of Patek Philippe 4972/1g replica watches. Rather than purchasing a watch, you purchased a Patek – even though it was not a Patek.

The Swiss watch industry has ever been resourceful in identifying buoyant markets, and although now the Asian markets absorb much of its focus back in the late 19th century and early 20th century that the Americas have been an El Dorado of industry chances. This led in some truly unique commissions like the Henry Graves Supercomplication, that was sold bySotheby’s Geneva last year to get a cool $24 million.

Back in 1902, Gondolo & Labouriau commissioned a Patek Philippe nautilus 4972 replica watch pocket watch with exclusive technical specifications – in this instance, a golden equipment train – giving rise to the renowned Chronometro Gondolo household of pocket watches. The very first Chronometro Gondolo wristwatches emerged in 1910 and arrived in square, rectangular and tonneau-shaped cases representing the spirit of this era. Additionally, the wristwatches were commissioned in larger-sized instances – around 48mm in diameter – to signify the Brazilian watch aficionado’s preference for bigger timepieces that could make them noticed.

Capitalising on the exclusivity factor of getting Switzerland’s most famous watchmaker make versions specifically for Gondolo & Labouriau, the jewellers created a smart marketing program and produced a watch-collecting club called the Gondolo Gang. A potent status symbol among Ray’s top course, the 180 members have been encouraged to take part in the Plano perform Club Patek Philippe nautilus yupoo 4972 fake System, a pay-by-installment plan permitting the 790 Swiss Francs price label of a Chronometro Gondolo watch to be deferred over 79 weeks. Besides this appealing incentive, the jewellers organised 79 per week lotteries because of its associates, devoting the winning amount that the Patek watch and so cancelling any future obligations. To reestablish the weekly lotteries of this Gondolo Gang, members had been encouraged to picnics, parties and also a unique piece of music called the Patek Waltz written by F. Santini was performed events.

When Patek Philippe nautilus box 4972 replica introduced the Gondolo watch set for both women and men in 1993, it awakened a sleeping beauty following a profound slumber. Ref. 5098 published in April 2007 was immediately motivated by a 1925 Chronometro Gondolo decked out in platinum – and afterwards in rose gold – using a specially designed manual-winding movement. In 2013, the Gondolo has been provided a sensible day and date sign, and a power book of 8 in one of the very handsome declinations of this group.

Gondolo watches for girls incorporate some high jewelry bits like Ref. 7099 using its arbitrary or snow-set dial and instance, substituting flowery designs, or Ref. 4972 using its cinched waist and curvaceous shapes. Among my favorites is Ref. 7041 using its plump increased gold, cushion-shaped case and tasteful diamond setting. The large jewellery Ref. 7042 marries pearls and diamonds to sublime effect, mixing different cuts of diamonds on the dial and the case, while the necklace is a rhapsody of white Akoya pearls combined with princess-cut diamonds.

 

Patek Philippe gondolo vintage replica watch debuted a new men’s Gondolo mention — with a gorgeous blue sunburst dial and white gold case — last month at Baselworld. It has the exact same movement, case dimensions and overall layout as the recent Gondolo benchmark 5124J-001, that’s comes yellowish gold, with a few subtle enhancements.

The dial features new thicker, facetted and glistening white gold applied hour markers. The facetted dauphine-shaped hour and second hands are the same as the present Gondolo, except in white gold. The ring is sloped and has black moved minute graduations, same as before. The numeral at 12 o’clock was substituted with dual baton indexes. Also, the small seconds chapter ring currently has 60 graduation as opposed to 15.

The case is white gold that’s been fully polished and measures 33.4 mm by 43 mm. A cambered sapphire-crystal case back is curved to match the shape of the case, a design that is both elegant and ergonomic.

Inside, is manufacture caliber 25-21 REC PS that’s manually wound and includes a Spiromax® balance spring plus a free-sprung Gyromax® equilibrium wheel. The motion defeats at 4Hz (28,800 vph) and has a power reserve of 44-hours. The watch has 142 full parts, 18 jewels and a total of 7 bridges — which were chamfered and polished and decorated with Geneva stripes — mounted on top of this main plate which is decorated with a perlage therapy.

The small, solid-while golden push-in crown is emblazoned with the Patek Philippe gondolo rose gold fake watches logo and can be partially recessed into the face of the circumstance.

Final Thoughts

The yellow gold Gondolo remains from the collection, but considering white gold is more popular today, this is certain to be aligned with current tastes. Not to mention, the updated dial design — exemplified with its glowing blue sunburst end — that’s arguably much more attractive.
