New York, NY 14th of June 2017 – Patek Philippe is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club for The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition New York, which will take place July 13th – 23rd, 2017 at Cipriani 42nd Street. 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 Horlogerie. 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, a two-story structure will be 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 in a space of 13,218 square feet. 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. After visitors have concluded their tour they are welcome to rest and relax in the Patek Philippe Café.

Patek Philippe will offer a commemorative catalog, available for purchase at a nominal fee during the exhibition. This one-of-a-kind catalog will highlight the historical timepieces, current novelties, Rare Handcrafts, and Grand Complications that will be showcased throughout the exhibition. Patek Philippe will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the catalog to The Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.

Patek Philippe presenta

The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition - New York 2017

Patek Philippe è lieta di presentare The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition che si terrà a New York dal 13 al 23 luglio 2017, più precisamente presso l’hotel Cipriani sulla 42a strada.

La Mostra aperta al pubblico, della durata di dieci giorni, racconterà la lunga tradizione della Maison Patek Philippe nel settore dei segnatempo di alta precisione, i suoi 178 anni di storia e il suo Retaggio nell’alta orologeria. I visitatori avranno l’opportunità di scoprire ciò accade dietro le quinte dell’ultima Maison orologiera ginevrina a conduzione famigliare.

Per la prima volta, è stata creata presso il Cipriani una struttura a due livelli, in modo da ottenere la superficie necessaria a una mostra di queste dimensioni. Sono state realizzate dieci sale specifiche (compreso il Theater Room, la Sala della Collezione Corrente, la Sala del Patek Philippe Museum, la Sala dell’Orologeria Storica USA, la Galleria dei Mestieri Rari e la Sala delle Grandi Complicazioni) per dare sempre il giusto contesto agli oggetti in mostra.

I visitatori potranno osservare orologi da tasca e da polso straordinari, risalenti anche al 1530, su una superficie di 1.200 metri quadrati. Tra le attività interattive durante la Mostra, sono previste dimostrazioni di orologiai e artigiani per invitare i visitatori a interessarsi ai segreti dell’alta orologeria. Il Patek Philippe Café è il luogo perfetto per riposarsi e rilassarsi una volta conclusa la visita.
