Watches News by Patek Philippe : Patek Philippe is delighted to present The Art of Watches, Grand Exhibition New York 2017 which will take place from July 13th – 23rd, 2017 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York. The 11-day public exhibition will showcase Patek Philippe's tradition of high-precision watch manufacturing, an insight into the company's 178-year history as well as its heritage in the domain of Haute Horologerie. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover the world of the last privately family owned Geneva watch company from the inside.

For the first time ever a two-story structure has been created within Cipriani to accommodate the square footage required for an exhibition of this scale. Ten specific rooms (including the Theater Room, Current Collection Room, Museum Room, US Historic Room, Rare Handcrafts Gallery and Grand Complications Room) have been created to showcase unique environments. Visitors will have access to exceptional pocket and wristwatches dating back to 1530. Watchmaker and Artisan demonstrations are some of the interactive activities taking place during the exhibition as a way to educate visitors on the inner-workings of fine watchmaking.

The aim of the Grand Exhibition is to recreate elements of the company that will provide an unforgettable experience for each visitor as close as possible to the feeling Patek Philippe guests have when they visit the company's manufacture in Geneva, The Patek Philippe Museum, and the historical Salons on the Rue du Rhone.

Patek Philippe U.S. President, Larry Pettinelli commented, "We are tremendously proud to have been allowed this rare opportunity to educate the public not only about Patek Philippe, but also the historical significance of timekeeping through the ages." Additionally, Pettinelli noted, "New York was a logical choice for the U.S. Grand Exhibition, as this was one of the first landing spots for Patek and Philippe in the 1800's when they began to explore the new world."

The Art of Watches, Grand Exhibition will be open to the general public and free of charge July 13th -23rd, 2017 from 10:00am to 7:00pm.
