Introduction

- Gondolo
Manual winding

With its rectangular, tonneau- or cushion-shaped cases, the Gondolo collection brings together most of Patek Philippe’s “form” watches, the term for all those that are not round. their strong lines, timeless style and geometric simplicity are a contemporary interpretation of the art deco style, which coincided with one of Patek Philippe’s own golden ages. In introducing the Gondolo, Patek Philippe has reinterpreted – with a subtle infusion of modernity – some of the historical pieces that are part of its heritage and may be admired in the Patek Philippe museum.

Gemsetting

Rubies, emeralds, sapphires, diamonds – all gems must comply to the Patek Philippe Seal’s strict criteria and be the very best of their kind. In terms of diamonds, only the top D to G color range is acceptable. Diamonds must be of the internally flawless (IF) grade and cut must correspond to the international grades “excellent” to “very good.” Patek Philippe gems are always set by hand, and never bonded with adhesive. Rows of gems must be level and pointing in the same direction. The setter always considers the shape and particular character of each gem in order to bring out its radiant beauty, however gems are to be set, whether in a traditional pattern, randomly (simulating, perhaps, a starry sky) or as baguettes standing as numerals.
