Watches Exhibition at Palazzo Falson
Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum, in collaboration with Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti, is continuing with its series of temporary exhibitions with one dedicated to antique watches. Over 50 watches specially loaned from private and museum collections highlight the technological and artistic qualities of antique watches. The exhibition considers their variations and functions, and takes an in-depth look at particularly important watches belonging to notable personalities. This show not only delves deep into these marvellous little machines to see how they work, but also demonstrates their aesthetic qualities and how they were once indispensable items of costume, merging beauty and function in a wearable objet d’art.
This exhibition is guest-curated by David Thompson, who occupied the role of Senior Curator of Horology at the British Museum until his recent retirement.
