Patek Philippe Watch Art Grand Exhibition Singapore: Something For The FamilyWritten by Alvin Wong
Yes, please bring the kids.
That thing about never really owning a Patek Philippe, but merely looking after the watch for the next generation? Well, the next generation better get up to speed with how precious a Patek Philippe watch really is, then.
During the Geneva watch manufacture’s epic Watch Art Grand Exhibition Singapore 2019, which will be held from 28 September to 13 October at the Marina Bay Sands Theatre, two Sundays will be set aside as ‘Family Days’.
On the 6 and 13 October ‘Family Days’, between 10am and 5pm, the exhibition will run a number of fun and interactive activities specially catered for children. They include a treasure hunt, watch creation exercises, as well as colouring, balloon-making and temporary tattoo stations. Kids will also be given mechanical clock-making kits in their welcome packs.
Besides truly involving the next generation in watch appreciation, the ‘Family Days’ is a reflection of Patek Philippe’s family-owned DNA. Founded in 1839, Patek Philippe is one of the last independent and family-owned Swiss luxury watch companies, currently managed by the Stern family, which has run the company since 1932.

Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
