Patek Philippe has once again demonstrated their commitment to timeless elegance with the 2003 announcement of the all new Gondolo 5109 rectangular men's wristwatch.

Taking design cues from Patek Philippe's great rectangular watches of the middle of last century and particularly inspired by the 1930's ref. E739 housed in the Patek Philippe museum, the new Gondolo 5109 measures 30 millimeters wide and 43 millimeters from lug to lug with a water resistance rating of 25 meters.

Each model has a dial that matches the material of the case and applied Breguet numerals and hands in black-oxidized gold, giving them a distinctive appearance and excellent readability.

It utilizes the calibre 215 manual wind movement with 18 jewels, a 44 hour power reserve, a Gyromax balance and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Like all mechanical movements from Patek Philippe, the cal. 215 inside the 5109 carries the Geneva Seal.

It is available in white gold, yellow gold or rose gold with matching tang buckles on a handstitched alligator strap.
