The Gondolo Haute Joaillerie watch marries different cuts of diamond and pearls to sublime effect on a canvas inspired by the original Gondolo collection made at the turn of the last century. The cushion-shaped rose gold case measures 31 x 34.8mm and showcases the skill of Patek Philippe’s master gemsetters who have cut and arranged a total of 556 diamonds. The case and lugs are set with 78 baguette-cut diamonds, while the dial dazzles with a circular arrangement of 251 diamonds and trapeze-cut hour markers. The bracelet is a tapestry of 84 Akoya pearls interspersed with princess-cut diamonds and rose gold links. Naturally the foldover clasp is set with diamonds and the crown with a lovely Akoya pearl cabochon.
