Patek Philippe Plans a 400-Watch Exhibition in New York - The New York Times patek philippe watches for sale in dubai

Patek Philippe Plans a 400-Watch Exhibition in New York By ROBIN SWITHINBANK DEC. 7, 2016

Continue reading the main story Share This Page Continue reading the main story Photo An image from the Patek Philippe exhibition in spring 2015 in London. Patek Philippe watches worth hundreds of millions of dollars are set to go on display at a grand-scale public exhibition in New York this summer.

The family-owned luxury Swiss watch brand intends to present more than 400 pieces from its current and museum collections during a 10-day exhibition beginning July 13. It has held public exhibitions in Dubai, Munich and, most recently, London in spring 2015.

But “this scale of exhibition has never been done in this country before,” said Larry Pettinelli, president of the Henri Stern Watch Agency, Patek Philippe’s American subsidiary.

The house will invite retailers from each of its 95 sale points across the United States to attend the exhibition, “The Art of Watches, Grand Exhibition New York 2017,” with a guest. But Patek Philippe says the exhibition isn’t just for retailers, collectors and its best customers. “We’re always talking about how to reach the 20-something generation,” Mr. Pettinelli said. “Even if they’re not financially prepared to buy a high-end watch, it’s nice to get them involved in understanding what watchmaking is and specifically what Patek Philippe is.”

The 15,000-square-foot exhibition will have a series of rooms, each with a display telling a different part of the brand’s story. And some of the company’s artisans will travel to New York for enameling, engraving and gem-setting demonstrations.

Mr. Pettinelli expects the American room, created for the New York exhibition, to be the highlight.

It will feature watches made in the early 20th century for the banker Henry Graves Jr. and the automobile manufacturer James Ward Packard. The two men commissioned some of the world’s most complex pocket watches, including the Patek Philippe H cmrbkqem. patek philippe women's diamond watchenry Graves Supercomplication, which was sold by Sotheby’s in 2014 for $24 million, the most ever paid for a watch at auction. “The Graves and Packard watches are a big part of the history of the U.S.,” Mr. Pettinelli said.

Entry will be free to the public, with no reservation required. “We want to expose Patek Philippe and the world of watchmaking to people who maybe don’t know about Patek Philippe,” Mr. Pettinelli said, “but are interested in learning.”

Every Monday, I’ll be posting a new full resolution image that you can zoom into and pan around for yourself.

This week’s “Full Frame” is a mere 80 megapixel shot of the movement of a Patek Philippe 5204 perpetual calendar with split-seconds chronograph. It was taken with my old Phase One IQ3 80 digital back, before I upgraded to the IQ3 100.

I’ve posted some detail cropped macro shots from this image on my  Instagram  account before, but now for the first time you can zoom into and pan around the entire movement and explore every detail for yourself!

If you are interested in purchasing this watch, please don’t hesitate to contact  K2 Luxury , who were gracious enough to loan me the watch to shoot. You can also follow them on their Instagram account  here  – they do get some rather stunning pieces, and I’m very lucky to be able to occasionally photograph some of them.

Use the icons in the image below to go full screen, and then zoom into and out of the image.

Following on from the 5180, 5088 and 5131, it’s game, set and match to my friends @k2luxurywatches with this astonishing Patek Philippe 5089G-024. The cloisonné enamel dial requires more than 50cm of gold wire with transparent, opaque, and opalescent enamel in 10 different colours to create the beautiful tulip motif, recalling the tiled mosaics of Istanbul’s most spectacular imperial mosques.
