This beautiful museum is housed in a building from the early 20th Century and expands over four floors. As might be expected from a luxury watch brand, the museum is elegant and plush and has over 2000 extraordinary pieces on display dating as far back as 1540.
For watch lovers, as expected, there is a very impressive collection of Patek Philippe watches, including watches enjoyed by royalty from Queen Victoria to the King of Siam. There is also a lot of information on some of the most complicated watches in the world.
I would really recommend following the guided tour to make the most of this museum. During the tour, the guide not only points out exceptional timepieces providing details on some of the most beautiful creations, but also explains the history of Swiss watchmaking and the history of Patek Philippe. I highly recommend a visit to get a glimpse into this world of exceptional craftsmanship. During the week there are two watchmakers working behind glass, taking care of recent museum purchases.
