The watchmaking atelier lasts approximately an hour and a half during which a group of maximum 6 adults take turns to assemble a functional caliber.
During this session you will learn the names of the components of a mechanical movement, how they work together once assembled to keep track of the time, how to manipulate them and assemble them together, and gather tips from some of the best watchmakers of the “Canton de Genève”. After this atelier, you will be able to appreciate the beauty and technical achievement behind every automatic watch. Your newly acquired knowledge will make you appreciate the art hidden under the dial of your wristwatch. You will soon become one of the privileged who understands the cultural relevance of a traditional timepiece and its value.
The visits last around one hour and a half and can include up to 15 adults who will have the great opportunity to witness the talent of Swiss watchmakers in action, visit the hidden recesses of our facilities, and discover our Manufacture Experience. This permanent exhibition launched in 2019, will bring you through the birth of our timepieces, from conception to the final stages of the assembly, as well as the history of the 3 brands of the group: Frederique Constant, Alpina watches and Ateliers deMonaco.
During your stay you will grasp how a watch manufacture operates and brings beautiful timepieces to life. You will have a better understanding of how a manufacture is organized and you will get a better appreciation of how our watches are conceived, produced and then assembled in one of the most efficient lean supply chain of the Swiss watch industry.
