The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie presents the Mastery of Time for the sixth edition in Mexico

at the Salón Internacional Alta Relojería (SIAR) fine watch fair in Mexico City

The Watch Quote™ - September 11th, 2012



From October 2th to 4th 2012, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) will travel to Mexico with an original, historically-themed exhibition entitled The Mastery of Time.



This exhibition from the Foundation draws on the eponymous book written by the historian Dominique Fléchon, jointly published by the FHH and Flammarion. Some one hundred artefacts and historically significant timepieces illustrate Man's ingenuity over the centuries in conquering his temporal environment.



As well as travelling through different ages, this informative exhibition crosses the continents and will be successively presented at SalonQP in London, and Belles Montres in Paris.



True to its mission to promote the culture of time measurement in all its forms and around the globe, through this exhibition the FHH considers the history of time measurement as the mirror of human genius. Indeed, from the first gnomons to contemporary wonders of micromechanics, the inventions which have allowed Man to walk in the footsteps of Chronos are intimately linked to centuries of scientific and technical discoveries.



The exhibition is presented in six parts which immerse visitors in the pivotal moments of Man's incessant quest to capture time. Together they show the different stages of development which have made the measurement of time one of Man's greatest achievements, and a fabulous canvas for artists and craftsmen.
