Workshops and talks 2017


GPHG exhibition - Geneva, Musée d’Art et d’Histoire (MAH)
November 1st to 12th 2017

As part of our Geneva exhibition presented the 2017 pre-selected watches, being held in the MAH from November 1st to 12th, we are offering – in cooperation with the FHH – the possibility of taking part free of charge in various watchmaking initiation workshops and talks, upon reservation.

  • Watchmaking initiation workshops

Accompanied by watchmaking professionals, these workshops provide a fascinating immersion into the world of the infinitely small. From gear trains to springs and from escapement to balance wheel, you will enjoy the pleasure of dismantling and reassembling each and every movement component. You will experience the thrill of seeing the heart of a mechanical watch start beating again.
