Mark Hearn, managing director for Patek Philippe UK, said: “The Grand Exhibition hosted many people whom had heard of Patek Philippe but didn’t have a clear idea of exactly what the brand represented within the watch industry. And this magnificent event has changed it. We are extremely happy with the positive feedback from the general public, retailers and customers, and delighted by the success of the event which is proved by the amazing number of visitors who attended and enjoyed it.”
