Exhibition "Timepieces signed Rousseau"

Exhibition "Timepieces signed Rousseau"

From 11 May to 13 October 2012

On the occasion of the three-hundredth anniversary celebrations of the birth of Jean-Jacques Rousseau organised by the City of Geneva and in the context of its "2012 Rousseau pour Tous" programme, the Patek Philippe Museum and the Comité Européen Jean-Jacques Rousseau present an exceptional exhibition. “Timepieces Signed Rousseau” is taking up residence at the Patek Philippe Museum from 11 May to 13 October 2012.

The exhibition showcases horological masterpieces from the 17th century: some thirty precious and rare timepieces from the collections of the Patek Philippe Museum, prominent museums and private collections. Constituting a vibrant tribute to the Rousseau watchmaking dynasty, they bear witness to the extraordinary manufacturing expertise of the Geneva Fabrique, an institution that from the 17th century onwards made the City of Calvin the cradle of fine watchmaking.
