Due to the exceptionally high attendance, the exhibition has been extended until the 10 December 2011. Parmigiani Fleurier, renowned as one of the most prestigious contemporary Haute Horlogerie brands,is the co-presenter for the exhibitionand to mark its involvement, it has launched two unique timepieces inspired by the Maurice Sandoz collection. The brand chose to recreate a mechanism found in one of the historic pieces from the collection in tribute to the event – a timepiece featuring telescopic hands that run around the circumference of an oval-shaped dial, a nod to the inventiveness of the master watchmakers of the past.
