Henry Graves Jr. was a New York banker and fine arts enthusiast who commissioned the “Henry Graves Supercomplication” pocket cheap replica watches in 1933, which sold at Sotheby’s in 2014. Watchmaker and Artisan demonstrations will be part of the interactive activities taking place during the exhibition. The fake Patek Philippe watch is publishing a lavish catalog to accompany the show which is sure to become a hot collectors’ item. There’s even an on-site Patek Philippe Cafe for those who feel peaked after several hours of studying impossible beautiful and expensive timepieces. If you have plans to visit New York next month this should be at the top of your list.
The John F. Kennedy clock was commissioned by German retailer Heinz Wipperfeld and manufactured by Patek Philippe for President Kennedy in 1963, and was a gift from the mayor of West Berlin, Willy Brandt following JFK’s popular “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech. It shows the time in Moscow, Washington D.C, and Berlin. Joe DiMaggio’s Patek Philippe fake watch, created in 1948, was reportedly given to Mr. DiMaggio by the owners of the New York Yankees, and now resides in a private collection.
Other great points from the U.S. Historic Room will include 11 timepieces from two of the most important Patek Philippe replica collectors of the twentieth century, Henry Graves Jr. and James Ward Packard. The two American titans of industry commissioned some of the most complicated and significant timepieces ever created.
