Patek Philippe is continuing its 175th anniversary celebrations with a special exhibition of its commemorative timepieces in Geneva.
The Patek Philippe Museum, in Geneva’s Plainpalais district, is hosting an exhibition of all of the company’s commemorative watches released between 1989 and the most recent pieces of 2014. The exhibition is open now until April 11 next year.
The exhibition showcases 60 limited-edition commemorative Patek Philippe timepieces that have been created to mark special occasions over the last 25 years. Commemorative watches created by Patek are usually the company’s most complicated and intricate.
Interactive displays have been created to convey the brand’s history and technical accomplishments to visitors at the exhibition. The displays include a world first in the form of the 3D Immersive Experience which will allow users to ‘dive’ into the astonishing movement inside the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime.
Patek Philippe’s 175th anniversary celebrations began in earnest in October when a series of commemorative limited edition watches, including the company’s most complicated wristwatch to date, the Grandmaster Chime, were unveiled to 3,600 journalists, retailers, watch collectors and aficionados from around the world.
Following the Geneva exhibition, Patek Philippe’s travelling Grand Exhibition will be coming to London’s Saatchi Gallery in May 2015.
