PATEK PHILIPPE MUSEUM

A gem of Museum !

Located in an Art Deco building in the Quartier des Bains, Geneva’s Art District, the Patek Philippe museum houses an impressive private collection of hundreds of timepieces, covering over five centuries of watchmaking history, starting from the 16th century with the earliest watch ever made to present day.

The Antiques collection displays some of the most intricate timepieces ever produced, as well as musical automata, miniature portraits, enamelled fans, pens, pocket knives and snuffboxes, all of Swiss and European origins.

The Patek Philippe collection showcases the company’s most prestigious creations, including Patek’s first wristwatch, created in 1868.

Anyone who loves beautiful things will be fascinated by this museum and will no doubt appreciate the creativity, precision and art that goes into watchmaking.
