Patek Philippe Chronometro Gondolo Watch and Gemstone Jewelry Highlights Upcoming Intervendue AuctionFeb 23, 2021 14:00 EST
Patek Philippe’s Gondolo pocket watch collection was named after the famous Rio de Janeiro retailer Gondolo & Labouriau. Gondolo & Labouriau and Patek Philippe shared business connections from 1872 to 1927. Their successful bond led to the Chronometro Gondolo, a custom timepiece collection made especially for the Brazil-based retailer. Chronometro Gondolo pocket watches were Patek Philippe’s best-selling pieces in the early 1900s. The upcoming Intervendue auction presents a selection of gemstone jewelry and timepieces, including a Patek Philippe Chronometro Gondolo pocket watch. The 18-karat yellow gold pocket watch has the signature Chronometro Gondolo movement with a distinct gold gear-train.
The auction also showcases diamond, platinum, and gold jewelry pieces. One highlight is an alexandrite, diamond, and 14-karat white gold ring. The GIA-certified ring has 7.59-carat chrysoberyl alexandrite and tiered diamonds. Alexandrite gemstones were discovered during the 1830s in the Ural Mountains, near the Tokovaya river region. They are known for their color-changing properties. A platinum Art Deco diamond bracelet and a Victorian diamond and natural pearl brooch will be featured as well.
This gemstone jewelry and timepieces auction also presents a Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti 18-karat gold chain necklace. The pendant is from Elsa Peretti’s Open Heart collection. Cartier jewelry pieces, Frascarolo enamel jewelry, and Rolex, Longines, and Piaget wristwatches round out the catalog. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
