Even though this piece shows all the characteristics of a "Chronometro Gondolo" such as wolftooth winding wheels, gold train and counterpoised "Moustache" lever, the watch was never delivered to Gondolo & Labouriau in Rio de Janeiro. Between 1902 and 1930 Patek Philippe produced an exclusive collection specially for the renowned Brazilian watch resellers. The prestige of the Patek brand was such that the word "Patek" was regarded as a synonym for any watch, regardless whether it was made by Patek Philippe or not.
