Chronometro Gondolo watches were made especially for Gondolo & Labouriau in Rio de Janeiro, a dominant retailer in the 1870s. Starting in 1902, Patek Philippe produced a specially designed, extremely high quality calibre entitled 'Chronometro Gondolo' exclusively for Gondolo & Labouriau. Its specification required the ébauche to be based on Adrien Philippe's patented design (US patent No. 20483 of Jan 13, 1891) with the so called 'moustache' lever escapement, cut bimetallic balance and François Wilmot's patented micrometric cam regulator (US patent No 129197 registered on July 16, 1872).
