Photo Gallery: Patek Philippe Rare Handcrafts on Display in Geneva

From April 19 to 21, Patek Philippe will showcase their entire collection of rare handcrafts at their Geneva Salon. Here’s an inside look.

By Watchonista

Last seen at Baselworld 2018, the brand’s collection of rare Métiers d’Art pieces is now on display at their Geneva salon. This collection of 140 unique timepieces is an experience not to be missed. From intricate domed desk clocks with ornate enameling and miniature painting, to exuberant wristwatches with beautiful enamel, wood, and guilloche dials. Revisiting their rich history as watchmakers, Patek Philippe is also exhibiting unique pocket watches featuring motifs from the soaring alps of the south to the surface of the moon.
 


It’s important to note that most, if not all, of the pieces on display are already sold. Each buyer has been hand-picked by Mr. Thierry Stern. This will be your last opportunity to see these novelties before they go to the homes and wrists of a very privileged few collectors.
 


Last Monday, we had the special opportunity to photograph the exhibit before it opened to the public. In case you can’t make it to Patek Philippe’s Geneva salon, here is a selection of photos from our visit.
