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.
Parallels will be drawn between the art pieces and Parmigiani Fleurier's recent creations, both a mark of respect and a way of perpetuating the operations, techniques and applications.
