Patek Philippe Readies New York ‘Grand Exhibition’ With Special Product

This evening, Patek Philippe will lift the curtain on its Grand Exhibition in New York.
The self-funded retrospective of sorts will see a two-story structure mounted inside of Cipriani 42 Street. Free and open to the public, attendees will be guided through a series of rooms that detail various historical facets of the Geneva, Switzerland-based horology maison.
For the occasion, Patek Philippe has created nine limited-edition watches to be sold at the exhibition. Rare handcrafted watches will also become available for sale.
The timepieces include minute repeater, world time reference and wristwatch styles. Table clocks and pocket watches have also been created. Many of the limited editions come engraved with “Patek Philippe New York 2017” on the backs of their cases.
Prices begin at $21,547 for a Men’s Calatrava Pilot, embedded with a self-winding mechanical movement. They extend to $561,341 for a world time minute repeater that has a local time strike and simultaneously displays 24 time zones. Special-edition ladies’ watches are also on offer.
The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition will be open to the public July 13 through July 23. Artifacts dating back to 1530 will be on view in more than 13,218 square feet of exhibition space.
