Now on display at London’s Saatchi Gallery is the Patek Phillippe Watch Art Grand Exhibition. Offering “a rare insider’s perspective into the art of watchmaking within a family company,” the exhibition features 400 individual exhibits across 15 themed rooms, occupying over 2000m² to “recreate the world of Patek Philippe from the company’s historic Geneva headquarters to its workshop and museum.” Also on display is a complete collection of the watchmaker’s timepieces, including complications and grand complications, as perpetual calendars and minute repeaters appear alongside the likes of the Grand Master Chime — not to mention the first Swiss wristwatch ever created, which was crafted by the company back in 1868. Artisans are even on hand to demonstrate enamelling, guilloche work and precious stone setting.
The Patek Phillippe Watch Art Grand Exhibition opened May 27 and will remain on display through June 7.
