Essay: Patek Philippe began a long and successful partnership with famous Rio de Janeiro retailer Gondolo & Labouriau between 1872 and 1927. 

This association resulted in the creation of timepieces named The Gondolo Collection designed exclusively for the Brazilian retailer - named the “Chronometro Gondolo”. The collection initially consisted only of pocket watches, before the first wristwatches appeared in the late1920's
