Luxury watch specialist David Duggan discusses Patek’s new awe-inspiring, one-of-a-kind timepiece, the Grand Complication Reference 5208T-010 created for Only Watch 2017
Patek Philippe's new Ref. 5200 Gondolo 8 Days, Day & Date Indication appeals to all aficionados who prefer manually wound timepieces. For this model, the Genevan workshops developed a new caliber that in many respects is reminiscent of the Ref. 5100 “10-Day”, presented 13 years ago to welcome the new millennium. Unlike the 5100, however, the new Gondolo contains innovative Silinvar® components from the “Patek Philippe Advanced Research” think tank for which the manufacture has been granted numerous patents in the past years.The movement is accommodated in an anatomically curved rectangular case that celebrates the Art Deco style
