The Patek Philippe Museum displays watches, musical automata and portrait miniatures from the 16th to the 19th century, in addition to a library dedicated entirely to horology and its related subjects.

Privately guided tours give visitors an insight into the genius behind Patek Philippe’s legacy. Learn about the beginnings of Antoni Patek’s pocket watches in 1839 to the collaborative efforts of ‘Patek Philippe’ wristwatches in 1868, and the gradual introduction of features such as the chronograph and perpetual calendar. Worn by celebrities and royals alike, Patek Philippe’s timepieces have consistently achieved record-breaking prices at auction, making them the most expensive wristwatches in history.
