The Watch Art Grand Exhibition will bring to a close the Patek Philippe 175th anniversary celebrations, which started on 1st May this year. The event will incorporate the commemorative timepieces which will be presented later this year to the world and people will have the chance to experience these great moments in history for the company.

According to Jasmina Steele, the International Communication & Public Relations Director of Patek Philippe, the aim of the Grand Exhibition is to recreate places and elements of the company that will provide an unforgettable experience for each visitor offering as near as possible, the experience Patek Philippe guests have when they visit the company’s manufacture in Geneva, The Museum or the historical building in the Rue du Rhone. “We really want visitors to know about the history of horology through our own history and leave the Exhibition with a greater general knowledge of watchmaking”.

Mark Hearn, the Managing Director for Patek Philippe UK, says: “We are very proud of hosting this magnificent event in London, a multicultural city and a hub for business and tourists who come to visit from all over the world. If we can inspire and help visitors to understand and appreciate watchmaking, we will have achieved our objective”.
