Petit Futé's opinion on PATEK PHILIPPE MUSEUM

Vintage plate 2018

Unique timepieces in one of the most prestigious museums in Geneva. An essential visit to be planned.

Geneva is the flagship of watchmaking! The most majestic museum of watchmaking. Housed in an Art Deco building erected at the beginning of the 20th century, on four floors, Patek Philippe museum exhibits important watchmaking and enamelling collections of Genevan, Swiss and European origin, from the 16th to the 20th century. Explore a trail that relates the art of watchmaking over five centuries. There is also a library of more than 7,000 works about watchmaking and its ancillary branches. Historical collections consist mainly of watches, musical automatons and miniature portraits. You will really like the enamelled objects or those decorated with precious stones. These are genuine art works that are exported all over the world. An artistic know-how that brings together watchmakers, enamel makers and jewellers. The museum is also dedicated to prestigious creations that was created, developed and manufactured by the Geneva manufacture Patek Philippe since it was founded in 1839. A great tribute to the genius of watchmaking.

Magnifique, à ne pas manquer
Que vous soyez passionné par l'horlogerie ou non, ce musée faut le détour de par sa collection et la possibilité de découvrir les grandes complications très bien expliquées, tout comme des automates. La collection globale est phénoménale pour les amateurs de montres.

Très beau musée, avec une large collection de montres de toutes époques.
La mécanique complexe des boites à musique nous est expliquée, et les montres sont toutes plus belles les unes que les autres. D'autre part il est intéressant de découvrir l'historique de l'entreprise Pateck Philippe.
A voir.
