The Oak Collection

Delve into a carefully curated private collection featuring over a hundred of the finest watches in the world.

What to expect

This is the inaugural display of The OAK Collection: a one of a kind collection that reflects a four-decade long watch collecting passion.

The spectacular watches will be shown at the Design Museum for a week before they go on a world tour.

Divided into 11 sections, each of which could be described as a 'chapter' of time, each section encapsulates the collector's appreciation of specific types of watches – from simple, three-hand models to more complicated pieces.

The display will show the finest examples of watch making - varying from unique limited-edition and personalised contemporary models to handcrafted and vintage rare pieces by exceptional makers such as Patek Philippe, Francois-Paul Journe and Kari Voutilainen. The display ends with a look to the future and the contemporary watchmakers that the collector supports as the next generation of master craftspeople.
