    PATEK PHILIPPE CHRONOMETRO GONDOLO 20 LINES (WITH ORIGINAL CASE AND CERTIFICATE). 18K GOLD POCKET WATCH WITH ENAMELLED DISPLAY. GONDOLO LABOURIAU DO RIO DE JANEIRO WAS FOR DECADES THE LARGEST RETAILER OF PATEK PHILIPPE WATCHES THANKS TO AN PREPARED SALES SCHEME THAT FORMED A PRIVATE CLUB. NOT A PATEK “GENEVE”, CHRONOMETER “GONDOLO” IS IN THE HIGHER GRADE OF PATEK POCKET WATCHES. CASE # 280.671 MADE IN MID DEC. MOVEMENT# 175 SAME MATCHING CERTIFICATE PAPER AND INSIDE GONDOLO 18K GOLD DUST COVER. 52 MM IN DIAMETER. 101.2 G (TOTAL WEIGHT). The best and only the best. In every single detail, the Gondolo is probably the only pocket to own in a decent collection, a white enamel dial with the much sough after Breguet numerals, contrasting gold hands and outer red 24 hour division, a perfectly finish large 18K gold open face bassine style case with smooth bezel and guilloche case back, an hinged gold cuvette proudly engraved « Fabricato especialmente para a Relojoaria Gondolo, Rio de Janeiro » and a robust and high quality 20 lines movement, with wolfs tooth winding, gold wheel train, straight-line “moustache” lever escapement, cut-bimetallic compensation balance with timing screws, self-compensating blued steel Breguet balance spring, micrometric cam regulator. Dial, case and movement are signed. Thousands of watches were made that are now known as Gondolo watches and represent some of the most coveted Patek Philippe watches of all time. Being a member of the Gondolo collection club at the beginning of the 20th century was the ultimate expression of having’arrived’ into Brazilian society. The Gondolo Gang became famous for its members’ Patek Philippe Straw Hats, luxurious tours and shared obsession with owning the finest watches ever made. The retailer has developed a brilliant marketing scheme to attract members to its collection clubs – a sales strategy called’Club Patek Philippe’s Flat System’. For example, the first weekly’winner’ would receive his Patek Philippe for free, the second would pay only 10 francs for his watch, the third winner only 20 francs and so on. The remaining 101 members would pay the full price for their watches. The system allowed’gang’ members to circumvent Brazil’s ban on gambling, as clubs were considered private societies. Of the hundreds of pocket watches made for the Gondolo and Labouriau clubs between 1900 and 1927, now known as Chronometro Gondolo watches, the vast majority had a similar design. Four basic requirements were requested by Gondolo & Labouriau to distinguish watches made for them from those made for regular production by Patek Philippe. Firstly, the watches were made from gilded brass plates and featured the elegant S-shaped fourth wheel patented by Patek Philippe on January 13, 1893. Second , a Swiss mustache lever exhaust with bimetallic balancing balance featured on each watch to meet high precision standards. Thirdly , the fourth, middle and minute wheels of each watch were made in 9k rose gold. Chronometro Gondolo pocket watches were made in many different sizes and design configurations. Occasionally, certain examples have been equipped with central seconds of a chronograph. The dials were typically white enamel with Roman numerals, with some examples showing the owner’s name below 12 o’clock. When Patek Philippe began regular wristwatch production in 1910, Gondolo wristwatch movements had the same technical requirements as pocket watches. However, wristwatches were made in a variety of designs, available in circular, square, rectangular, cushion and, of course, tonneau shapes. Some were impressively sized: the largest Gondolo wristwatch was 48 mm long, including the protrusions. Today Gondolo & Labouriau is a distant memory. It imported its last Patek Philippe in 1927 and this retailer powerhouse has long been out of business. Patek Philippe now offers a complete line of wristwatches inspired by the original Gondolos. Gang Gondolo lives on, and watches from the past become objects of desire in the present. Contact me if you have doubts on how to get the watch to you.
