Lot Essay

The Ref. 5200 Gondolo introduced at Baselworld in 2013. It was available in white gold, either with a silvered dial (ref. 5200G-010) or the blue version (ref. 5200G-001).

The rectangular case is reminiscent of the firm’s Art Deco timepieces. The new 28-20 REC 8J calibre was specifically built for the reference, featuring twin inline barrels for an 8-days or 192 hours power reserve, Patek Philippe’s Spiromox balance spring and Pulsomax escapement to reduce friction and provide higher accuracy over time. The subsidiary seconds dial at 6 o’clock displays also the date indicated by a red-tipped hand and the day through a small aperture. Day and date instantaneously jump at midnight. . Furthermore, very few examples of this reference with the blue dial have been seen in the secondary market to date.
