It was certainly impressive to see that many different watches. I felt like I was at some collectors house versus a museum. Given that Patek makes watches I expected to see more of the "how" they do it etc. There is also very minimal descriptions at the displays. You really have to pay extra for the guided tour if you...

If you like watches, and learning about all types of timepieces, this is the place for you. On several different floors, exhibited in magnificent detail and lighting, you'll see every possible creation relating to watches. Allow enough time, as it's almost too much to absorb quickly. Well worth a visit.

If you happen to be in London between 27 May and 7 June there is a huge free exhibition of Patek Philippe watches, clocks, both modern and antique, at the Saatchi Gallery on the Kings Rd. Videos, demonstrations, hundreds of beautiful timepieces, and a cafe. Entrance is free. What more could you want.

It's 10 Swiss Franc to enter the museum. The museum is very small, there are four floors, two floors of watches and a floor with old wooden machines (it's only one small room) and disappointingly the video in the auditorium is in French. They obviously don't welcome non French speaking visitors as they did not even make an effort to... More

Fascinated by complex and very expensive watches? Then this is the place for you. For all others, this museum is a bit boring.

I confess I was looking forward to the museum more than I should have. It is well out of the way and if you walk it, it is not well marked on the tourist maps. The displays are beautiful. The movie is a waste of time and poorly done. The displays have explanations but aren't very helpful or informative. The... More

This is for the serious watch and jewellery enthusiast. It's a little on the stuffy side (no photographs, no touching, no breathing) and a little on the dry side, with few English translations. If you've got young children with you, I would strongly advise against it...! If you haven't got children, I'm still not sure I'd recommend it. Still, plenty... More

It is a good place to visit if you are into nice watches and jewelry. I can definitely recommend the guided tour, where you get to know the story of the business and specif items.
