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.
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.
