The Patek Philippe Art of Watches, Grand Exhibition New York 2017 is free and open to the public and will take place from July 13th – 23rd, 2017 at Cipriani 42nd Street.
Visitors will have access to exceptional pocket and wristwatches dating back to 1530. 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.
Highlights of the exhibition include a historic desk clock commissioned for President John F. Kennedy and Joe DiMaggio’s Patek Philippe Ref. 130J, created in 1948, reportedly given to Mr. DiMaggio by the owners of the New York Yankees.
Alongside the exhibition, Patek Philippe will release a limited-edition U.S. Collection, which will be available at retailers around the country. Hope we can work together on a segment on this major exhibition coming to the U.S.
Also a great tie is Family Day, which will take place on Saturday, July 22, 2017. A variety of interactive activities will take place between 10:00am and 7:00pm including specially created balloons, and a coloring station. Children will have the opportunity to sit side-by-side with a Patek Philippe watchmaker at their bench, while being guided into the world of Patek Philippe and mechanical timepieces. Visitors will be able to take home a memory of the exhibition with a customized photograph featuring a backdrop of the historic Patek Philippe building on Rue du Rhone in Geneva.
