In celebration of the highly anticipated 6th edition of the Watch Art Grand Exhibition, Patek Philippe has unveiled an exquisite collection of captivating watch designs.
Recognized as the premier biennial event by Patek Philippe, the Watch Art Grand Exhibition has garnered a reputation as the pinnacle of horological excellence. This year, the prestigious event took place in Tokyo, Japan, from June 10 to June 25.
The Patek Philippe Watch Art Grand Exhibition in Tokyo featured 10 distinct exhibition areas, each showcasing a different thematic experience, ranging from classic to contemporary timepieces. A special section was dedicated to exhibiting the brand’s rich tradition of craftsmanship, with master artisans from the Patek Philippe workshop providing live demonstrations.
As customary, Patek Philippe presented a series of limited-edition timepieces paying tribute to the host country. Among the remarkable creations unveiled at this year’s exhibition were the Quadruple Complication 5308P-010, the World Time Minute Repeater 5331R-014, the World Time 5330G-010, and various other Rare Handicraft masterpieces.
A standout model from the collection is the awe-inspiring Patek Philippe Quadruple Complication 5308P-010, boasting complications such as a perpetual calendar, repeater, and chronograph, all accessible at the push of a button. This intricate mechanical timepiece was widely admired at the Watch Art Grand Exhibition Tokyo 2023.

Crafted from white gold and delicately plated with a pink hue, the dial exudes a refined aesthetic. The hands, markers, and bezel surrounding the window are crafted from white gold with charcoal grey accents, harmoniously blending sophistication and style. Despite its numerous functions, the watch’s dial remains effortlessly legible and visually pleasing.
Powering the timepiece is the Caliber R CHR 27 PS QI automatic movement, comprised of 799 meticulously finished components, meeting the exacting standards of the Patek Philippe Seal.
