    With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 3 June 2008, instruction manual, leather wallet, fitted presentation box and outer packaging. Furthermore delivered with Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with slate grey dial and white gold indexes in 2008 and its subsequent sale on 15 January 2008.

    The "Gondolo Calendario" reference 5135 was introduced to the market in 2004, the distinctive and elegant case shape paying tribute to Patek Philippe's watches from the Art Deco period, underlining the continuous popularity of this celebrated epoch.

    The model is fitted with the new automatic calibre 324, incorporating the patented annual calendar function, a proprietary Patek Philippe development introduced in 1996 in the first wristwatch that automatically advances the month, day and date, and only requires a manual correction once a year on 1 March.
