Sandoz Collection in New York City

From October 26 – November 26, a selection of beautiful and rare pieces from the personal collection of Maurice Sandoz will be on display at A La Vieille Russie in New York City. The exhibition includes rare pieces by Fabergé, singular vintage pocket watches, modern Parmigiani timepieces, plus two new wristwatches from Parmigiani. Find complete details inside.

The exhibit, titled Mechanical Wonders: The Sandoz Collection, offers a unique opportunity to celebrate watchmaking art. Restored by Michel Parmigiani, the Sandoz Collection, which includes Fabergé, automatons and timepieces, will be exhibited to the public in the U.S. for the first time in over 50 years. Contemporary watches from the Parmigiani Fleurier collection will also be on display.
