Maison Patek Philippe Shanghai - Grand Opening October 18, 2012

Watch the exclusive interview with Thierry Stern, Patek Philippe’s president on the strategy behind the opening of the first Maison Patek Philippe in China in the historic Bund area of Shanghai.

The Maison Patek Philippe creates, for the first time in Asia, a venue serving a similar function as a Patek Philippe Salon. It highlights a remarkable display of beautiful timepieces with an invitation to experience the legendary history and values of Patek Philippe as well as its outstanding customer service. Covering an area of 1,227 square meters on two floors, the Maison Patek Philippe spans nine rooms including the main exhibition hall, which accommodates the complete Patek Philippe current collection, the largest collection on display in Asia.

Watch the reportage about the Opening Ceremony of the Maison Patek Philippe in Shanghai.

The official opening ceremony of the Maison Patek Philippe was hosted by Patek Philippe’s Honorary President Philippe Stern, alongside current President Thierry Stern and Managing Director Claude Peny, in the presence of Zhou Wei, Mayor of the Huangpu District, and Matthias Claussen, Managing Partner of Melchers Group. “The new site of the Maison Patek Philippe has a unique geographical advantage and cultural background. We wish to demonstrate our brand history and values to a growing number of watch lovers in China. Buying a Patek Philippe watch is also about sharing the passion and dedication of several generations of a family-owned watch company,” said Thierry Stern. The ceremony took place at Shanghai’s Waitanyuan Cultural Square situated behind the Maison Patek Philippe. Attending guests and government officials had the opportunity to discover the world of Patek Philippe in Geneva through a 3D projection “mapping show” on the building’s façade.

Patek Philippe reaffirms its long-term commitment to China with the inauguration of the world’s first Maison Patek Philippe in Shanghai, housed in the former British Consul’s Residence, located in the historic Bund area.

After more than two years of restoration and significant revamping, Patek Philippe is opening the first Maison Patek Philippe in China in the historic Bund area of Shanghai. This new exclusive venue marks seven years of growing success in the Chinese market developed with long-standing partner Melchers Group. The company’s presence in China began with the inauguration of a Patek Philippe Boutique in Shanghai in 2005, now to be replaced by the Maison Patek Philippe, and of a second Boutique in Beijing in 2008. The Maison Patek Philippe will offer Chinese watch collectors and enthusiasts an intimate place to share views and knowledge of fine timepieces as well as to experience the exceptional brand heritage of the famous Genevan watchmaking company.
