About the Museum

Philippe Stern’s passion for timepieces resulted in the opening in 2001 of a “Temple to watchmaking” : The Patek Philippe Museum. Located in an entirely restored Art Deco building in the area of Plainpalais in Geneva, the museum houses over five centuries of watchmaking history into two important collections: the extraordinary antique collection starting from the 16th century, which includes the earliest watch ever made and the Patek Philippe collection from 1839 onwards. The latter bears testament to more than 175 years of manufacturing the world's finest watches and includes the most complicated timepiece ever made, the Caliber 89. The Patek Philippe Museum is a logical and faithful conclusion to a true legacy of genius.

The Antiques Collection (16th-19th century)

A fascinating presentation of Genevese, Swiss and European watches and enamels dating from the 16th to the early 19th century, including a great number of masterpieces that have left their mark on the history of horology.

The Patek Philippe Collection (1839 - present)

An evocative showcase of watches designed and created by PATEK PHILIPPE since its foundation in 1839 up to the present day, testifying to more than 175 years of creativity in the production of pocket watches and wristwatches.
