The Maisons of the Fondation de La Haute Horlogerie on show in Milan from Pisa

On 16 and 17 October, for the first time, all the Maisons of the Fondation de La Haute Horlogerie (FHH) represented in Italy will be the protagonists of an exclusive exhibition to be held at Pisa Orologeria in Via Verri 7 in Milan. The exhibition, open to the public from 10.30 am to 6.30 pm, will display a selection of the most significant creations signed by the following brands: A.Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, BOVET, Bulgari, Cartier, Chanel, Chopard, De Bethune, F.P.Journe, Girard-Perregaux, Greubel Forsey, H.

The exhibition will be the setting for Franco Cologni's presentation of the book 'The Beauty of Time' by François Chaille and Dominique Fléchon. The book, published by Marsilio Editore, traces the history of watchmaking through a narrative that evokes its masterpieces, expressions of extraordinary technical and aesthetic savoir-faire, with continuous insights into the historical and artistic context in which they were born.
The event is part of the rich calendar of appointments and events that the Fondation de La Haute Horlogerie organises and promotes around the world with the aim of spreading the principles of creativity, culture and tradition, core values that it has been supporting and protecting since 2005. Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to admire 4 historical clocks, expressing the important contamination between cultural, historical and artistic aspects of the periods in which they were created: 'La Prémonition des tiroirs' table clock, Salvador Dalí, Omega, Bienne, 1973; Napoleon III marble table clock, dial signed Henry Bossert, Nancy, 19th century; Snuffbox with nightingale, anonymous, ca. 1910; Renaissance clock with astronomical functions, signed Christoph Muller, Augsburg (Germany), late 17th century.
