History of patek Philippe Gondolo "In 1872, Patek Philippe sold its first piece, a silver pocket watch, to Gondolo & Labouriau–a jeweler based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This sale established a robust relationship (that would last until 1927) between the Swiss watch manufacturer and Brazilian jeweler resulting in thousands of pieces sold. In fact, sales to Gondolo & Labouriau represented one-third of Patek’s production during that time! These special Patek watches were destined for members of an exclusive watch collecting club, dubbed The Gondolo Gang. The 180-member club comprised of the Brazilian elite and membership required a commitment to purchase a Gondolo & Labouriau-commissioned Patek Philippe pocket watch retailing at 790 Francs. However, members were not asked to pay for the watch in full but rather to sign up for the “Plano do Club Patek Philippe System.” The system was set up to bill each member 10 Francs for 79 weeks. But, to keep things interesting, Gondolo & Labouriau held weekly lotteries to relieve one lucky winner of their future payments. As a result, these weekly lottery drawings became lavish picnics where members proudly wore large straw hats emblazoned with PATEK on them. So ingrained was the name Patek in Brazilian society that the word “Patek” became synonymous for the word “watch.”
