Unusually Patek


Patek Philippe is arguably the most celebrated watch brand in history and certainly has the heritage and quality to back it up.  It’s reputation amongst watchmakers and collectors is unquestioned, yet to the more casual observer the brand may appear overly traditional, conservative, or just plain stuffy, especially if they’re only using the Calatrava as a point of reference.  Well Patek would not have such a reputation if they were just a one trick pony, and you can consider this Annual Calendar Gondolo as an official rebuttal.

   While well known for their traditional clean dials and thin, round cases, this watch goes in a much bolder direction.  The tonneau case is a much more modern shape than any Calatrava, and the Anthracite dial gives off a sporty contrast to the white gold case, but still looks neat enough to blend with traditional formal attire.  The watch also features an annual calendar, and moonphase function, just in case you weren’t sure if Patek knew their way around complications.  This is a 21st century timepiece from a brand with centuries of tradition, and if that sounds like you, it may be time to try it on!
