In the list of brands that tried to make watches using unusual materials, Patek Philippe is one of those which could not but subscribe: always very avant-garde, eager to experiment and always ready to meet the curiosity of its customers. Since 1851, the official year of the founding of Patek Philippe & Co, this incredible company has succeeded in creating unique and particular assaulting watches. The Gondolo offered here is the result of years of experimentation: this reference 3733 features a dial made with one of the most appreciated hard-stones that can be used in horology, onyx. Its penetrating dark black color is made even more evident by the total lack of indexes and by the unique presence of the white signature and the rose gold feuille hands. Onyx is also reused for the cabochon to adjust the time at 3 o’clock while the rectangular size case has a particular enlarged stripped decoration. This motif is also repeated on the integrated bracelet in 18k yellow gold. Preserved in good overall condition, at the time of production this watch was intended for a man’s wrist, but it would also be suitable for a lady.
