July 2017 sees The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition take place at Cipriani 42nd Street, a stone’s throw away from New York City’s famous Grand Central Terminal.
Featuring a curated selection of some of the finest timepieces in the world, Patek Philippe’s ‘Art of Watches Grand Exhibition’ launches in New York City, this July. Announced this week, the event will feature the addition of a ‘U.S. Historic Room’ bringing together a collection of notable timepieces from iconic American collectors.
One of ten thematic rooms at the Grand Exhibition, the U.S. Historic Room honours those notable collectors from across the country, as well as exhibiting iconic pieces on loan from the Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva, and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. One of the most iconic pieces in the collection for this exclusive event is an autonomous quartz desk clock famously presented to President Kennedy by the Mayor of Berlin following his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech in 1963. Showcasing the time in Moscow, Washington DC and Berlin, it signified the establishment of direct communication between the US and Russia.
For this first time, Patek Philippe’s Grand Exhibition will enter the Digital World. Launched this week, a dedicated Facebook and Instagram account have been opened, sharing up-to-date details and images of what is sure to be an incredible exhibition.
