Patek Philippe Is Exhibiting Your Grail Watch In Melbourne This Weekend

It’s fair to say that Australia isn’t quite the centre of the watch world, but just because Geneva is some 16,000 kilometres away, it doesn’t mean the occasional treat isn’t in store for Australian watch enthusiasts. One such highlight on the calendar is the upcoming Patek Philippe exhibition in Melbourne, set to open later this week, showcasing an exceptional range of modern timepieces.

It’s aimed both at serious Patek Philippe collectors in Australia, as well as more casual fans of the legendary Genevan Maison, with the exhibition to include the brand’s novelties which were released at Watches & Wonders 2023. These include recent references in the Calatrava, Aquanaut, Golden Ellipse, and Nautilus collections — as well as a Boss Hunting favourite arriving in the form of the Aquanaut Annual Calendar ref. 5261R.

The enduring value of Patek Philippe watches is unquestionable (a collectable Patek Philippe ref. 1436 recently set a new record for the priciest watch sold in a public Australian auction), which is why the brand is also bringing a curated selection of limited edition and unique timepieces to display.

For many of these pieces, this exhibition marks the first time that they will have been seen on Aussie shores, making this an event that no self-described “watch enthusiast” should pass up the opportunity to attend.

“Patek Philippe is an immutable symbol of luxury, craftsmanship, and enduring elegance in the world of haute horologerie,” says James Kennedy, the Executive Chairman of Kennedy.
