As the exhibition coincides with the 200th anniversary of the founding of Singapore, Patek Philippe will have a bit of fun matching its own watches and milestones with key moments in Singapore’s history since the arrival of Sir Stamford Raffles in the Singapore and Southeast Asia Room. Watch out for the Genevan pocket watch with an enamelled painting of the port of Canton, a tropical island-inspired table clock and a couple of pocket watches that belonged to King Rama V of Siam.

Admission is free but visitors must first register on www.patek.com to reserve tickets.
