The watchmakers Gondolo & Labouriau ordered only most elaborated watches. Typical are the following features: Cam disc regulator, cap jewels on escapement-wheel- and lever bearings, gold train, and the square hole in the barrel pinion for simply unwinding the spring. These famous watches were available from the small ladies size up to this huge watch.
There are few pocket watches which can actually be called lever-chronometer, and this one is surely the only real classic among them. Moreover this is the best known model ever made by Patek Philippe.
