One of the World's Greatest Watch Collections To Go On Display

Watch collectors in need of some inspiration should head to London this October, when one of the world’s greatest private watch collections is the subject of a new international exhibition.

The OAK Collection consists of 160 wrist and pocket watches including “unrepeatable special orders, ultra-rare limited editions and the most valuable examples of their type,” the product of four decades worth of collecting by a single, anonymous collector.

The collection includes the largest number of Patek Philippe pieces once owned by American banker and super collector, Henry Graves Jnr, the man who commissioned the $24m USD Supercomplication.

Both modern and vintage watches will feature in the exhibition that debuts at Kensington’s Design Museum from 8-14 October before going on an international tour.
