I don’t think anyone can disagree that Patek Philippe is the hottest watch brand on the market right now. Their watches have been some of the most sought after timepieces on the after market and every collector wants one in their collection Previously Enjoyed has me testing out a Patek Philippe Gondola Rose Gold 5109R. I’m excited to test out a new brand (for me) and a watch thats totally different then anything I’ve worn before!
I just want to do a quick history of Patek Philippe as a brand; The brand was founded in 1839 in Geneva. Since 1932, it has been owned by the Stern family in Switzerland. Patek has over 400 stand alone retail locations worldwide. One of the slogans at Patek Philippe’s company is “You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.” This slogan was introduced when the company launched its “Generations” campaign in 1996.

I’ve had a lot of occasions during this holiday season where I needed to go get dressed up. Sometimes my bigger watches don’t fit well under my suit. I wore out the Patek and it went so well with my suit! Fell nicely under my dress shirt and not cumbersome in the slightest.
The watch was purchased new in 2007 and although the watch isn’t that old, it does have some interesting vintage vibes. After wearing it, I think is has these vibes because of the unique champagne dial color that almost makes the watch looked aged.
If you wear a suit or dress up daily I would recommend this watch for you. It may be something very different that you typically own and wear, or maybe not. But why this watch? It has the prestige of brand power with Patek Philippe behind the mechanics and the subtlety of just wearing a super classic watch. I absolutely love the colour and the Arabic numbers on the dial.
