For the first time in Asia, Singapore will be hosting the biggest edition of Watch Art Grand Exhibition after its debut in Dubai (2012), Munich (2013), London (2015), and New York (2017).
Happening in the Lion City from September 28 to October 13 at the Marina Bay Sands Theater, the event invites everyone to immerse themselves in the world of Patek Philippe as if they were personally visiting the historic salons on Rue du Rhône in Geneva, the manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates, or the Patek Philippe Museum.
Guests can look forward to taking a behind-the-scenes look at the last independent family-owned Genevan watchmaking company, as well as enjoy in-depth insights into its iconic creations.
The exhibition will showcase limited special-edition watches and an important collection of rare handcrafted timepieces inspired by the cultural and artistic expressions of Southeast Asia and Singapore.
Spanning 1,800 square meters, the world of Patek Philippe will be recreated in ten themed rooms, each with its own distinctive ambiance. Visitors can watch a movie portraying Patek Philippe’s history, admire the manufacture’s complete current collection, and immerse themselves in a unique selection of complicated watches as well as a stunning range of movements.
Watchmakers and artisans will also be live on-site to demonstrate their watchmaking skills, allowing guests to delve into the horological artistry and the finesse mastered by specialist artisans such as enamel painters, whose guild has been associated with watchmaking for centuries.
A specially themed Singapore 200th Anniversary room will pay special tribute to this city-state and the countries of Southeast Asia. Their history, culture, art and natural environment will feature in an array of timepieces brought together exceptionally for the occasion. After completing the tour, visitors can hang out in the Patek Philippe lounge café.
Admission is free; tickets and more information here.
