Geneva had to have a museum devoted to the great Swiss watchmaking tradition, and this is it.
Watches and clocks.
Displayed on four storeys of giant glass cases set out on carpeted floors, it is the largest private timepiece collection in the world. Time, that essentially uncatchable thing, has found a home in this majestic early 20th century building on the Rue des Viex-Grenadiers, whose rooms showcase the great Swiss watchmaking tradition through unique jewels that have been passed down from generation to generation. An interesting collection for whoever wants to know about the history of this industry, from the 16th century to the introduction of the latest technological advances. Of course, the museum also has a large collection of the watches created and designed by Patek Phillipe since its foundation in 1851.
