I am not a fan of watches but yet enjoyed this fine museum. Luxury watches with jewelries is what every woman enjoys :))

The museum details the history of this famous Swiss watch maker and features numerous examples of watches and other ornaments made by the company.

We tried for the second visit to Geneva to visit this museum of PF. Two challenges- it doesn’t open till 2pm and guided tour in English is only available on Saturday. Unless of course you email them 2 days ahead to book a private tour which costs you 220CHF. The unguided tour is only 20CHF but with very little explanation.
There is a dazzling array of watches and time pieces to be sure and some of the early models in 18th century are really exquisite with the artwork as much as the clockworks. Of course there was no way to tell how the timepieces work Eg the Chimes and gongs if we didn’t have any access to video or audio material that could give us a flavour of the sounds and working mechanisms. Best part? The Chinese timepieces from Qing dynasty when most were made in pairs and aside from Chinese motifs on some they told a time when fascination by the Imperial court had meant a good stream of commissioned pieces made during this period.

Amazing exhibits. Simply exquisite. Too bad photography isn't allowed but that's completely understandable. A must see even if you are not a watch collector.

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.
