Visitors can expect free admission into the immersive and expansive installation, where they’ll learn about Patek Philippe’s tradition of high-precision watchmaking.

Watchmakers and artisans will be on hand to demonstrate their skills.

Taking place from now through October 13 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, the fifth edition of Patek Philippe’s Watch Art Grand Exhibition marks the Asian debut for the haute-horology event, as well as the largest such exhibition the Swiss manufacture has ever held.

Visitors can expect free admission into the immersive and expansive installation, where they’ll learn about Patek Philippe’s tradition of high-precision watchmaking and gain insights into the family-owned Genevan company’s long history.

Exhibits from the Patek Philippe Museum will showcase some of the very first portable timepieces from the mid-16th century, richly enameled pocket watches, and musical automata alongside a selection of the brand’s most splendid creations from 1839 to the present day, including a “royal watch” presented to Queen Victoria during the Great Exhibition of 1851.

Watchmakers and artisans will be on hand to demonstrate their skills, offering a close look at the inner workings of fine watchmaking and the decorative techniques that have adorned timepieces for centuries.
