Following its successful exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Shanghai in recent years, Patek Philippe opened its first Grand Exhibition on European soil in Milan in July.
The Exhibition in the Palazzo della Ragione displayed 250 timepieces including rare and legendary watches from the Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva as well as models from the watch manufacturer’s 2009 collection.
According to Patek Philippe, the exhibition offers not only insights into the Geneva watch manufacturer but also a real journey through the history of watchmaking.
“The 250 timepieces exhibited embody some of Patek Philippe’s most beautiful creations and illustrate the shared passion of Philippe and Thierry Stern,” a company spokesperson said.
Highlights of the exhibition included the Star Caliber 2000 which “features 21 of the rarest complications along with six patented innovations” as well as the latest models from BaselWorld 2009.
More than 4000 people visited the exhibition during its four-day opening.
