It was constructed with 34 jewels and a straight-line lever escapement. It has a shock absorber mechanism, a 21K gold rotor, and a self-compensating free-sprung flat balance spring. There is also the patented Patek Philippe Gyromax balance that compensates for cold, heat, isochronism, and 5 positions. The case, dial, and movement are all signed.
Patek Philippe launched the distinctive, art deco-inspired Gondolo line in 1993 with their reference 4824. This collection is a contemporary re-examination of the stepped, stylistic lines of the 1920's art movement that so influenced industrial design. The line is named for the "Chronometro Gondolo" pocket watches created by Patek for the Brazilian Gondolo & Labouriau jewelers in Rio de Janeiro in 1902. The company patented the first annual calendar indicator in 1996; this example was produced c. 2008.
