A Tale as Old as (Blenheim) Time

Blenheim Time, established in the 17th Century by the 4th Duke of Marlborough, highlighted the exact alignment of the Palace to GMT, setting Blenheim’s clocks approximately 5 and a half minutes slower than London. Today, thirty antique clocks remain in and around the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site, all meticulously maintained and restored by the Palace’s Official Timekeeper.

In 2021, Salon Privé will bring the world’s finest watchmakers together for a very special showcase, Salon Privé TIME. This unique commercial opportunity is limited to just 10 brands in the main emporium, all specially invited to display their latest releases. Guests will have the opportunity to browse, try on and purchase all the magnificent pieces on display.
