The title of the exhibition is ‘Controlling Time’, which is taken from the book of the same name published by the historian Dominique Fléchon, published by FHH Swiss High Watch Foundation and Flammarion. There will be about 100 art treasures and timers of historical significance telling the creativity that mankind has shown in the transcendence of time and space for centuries.
This meaningful exhibition not only led us through different centuries, but also across different countries, and presented three important watch and clock events in succession: Salon Internacional Alta Relojeria in Mexico City, SalonQP London Watch Salon, and Paris Belles Montres ‘beautiful watch’.
The exhibition aims to advance the global chronograph culture in various forms. The FHH Swiss Haute Horlogerie Foundation intends to use the exhibition to review the history of chronographs and show the strange creativity of human beings. In fact, from the first sundial to all kinds of exquisite modern micromechanical timers, these chronological inventions that have kept us pace with time are closely linked to the technological advances of centuries.
The exhibition is divided into 6 parts, leading visitors to walk through the critical moment of human beings’ constant pursuit of mastering time, showing the timepiece of one of humanity’s greatest inventions, and different development periods of ingenious inventions by artists and artisans.
This unique exhibition comes with catalogs and brochures.
