Restoration, which consists in returning an item to its original condition, requires the highest level of watchmaking skill. Much of what is learnt is actually linked to forgotten activities of the past.
Marvels from the Maurice Sandoz Collection, restored by Michel Parmigiani, will be on display during special 6-day exhibition which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the event which sparked the creation of Parmigiani Fleurier Manufacture: the encounter between Swiss master watchmaker and Sandoz Family Foundation.
Organized by: Parmigiani Fleurier

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Gallery 3 is a presentation space dedicated to design, which develops collaborative programs with domestic and overseas corporations, which constitute one of the major bases of making things, as well as educational, research and cultural institutions. Through programs that inform the very present of design, here, we can think about our everyday life and future with a greater number of people, and make various proposals.
Through networks that continue to expand from the Gallery 3 as the hub, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will explore a multifaceted “design point of view” in future.
