THE MASTER CLASSES LEARN THE GESTURE OF SWISS FINE WATCHMAKING

THE MASTER CLASSES

Learn how to master one by one the gestures of High Watchmaking and Rare Handcrafts

The Master Classes represent a unique opportunity to put on the white coat of a master watchmaker, a master enameller or of a master engraver, to understand their profession, to use their tools and to repeat their gestures...

 

The very name “Master Classes” expresses well the dimension of initiation and learning that has constantly guided the Grande Maison since its origins. To transmit. Inspiration. To share. Such is the primary purpose of these original Master Classes which invite you to discover and carry out the thousand and one gestures – often unsuspected but always necessary – for assembling a watch movement, creating a grisaille enamel or with personalized engraving.

 

During this passionate journey behind the scenes of the watchmaking art and its Rare Handcrafts, the watchmakers and craftsmen of the Manufacture will give you the keys, and the tools, which will allow you to:

1. make the heart of a watch literally beat from the separate components of a movement (Master Class Introduction to Watchmaking – 6 participants maximum)

2. test your artistic talents by making your own grisaille enamel pattern (Enamelling Master Class – 4 participants maximum)

3. leave your mark (initials, a number, a pattern) on a silver plate (Engraving Master Class – 4 participants maximum)

 

And you, which Master Class will you choose: Introduction to Watchmaking, Enamelling, Engraving? Whether you are a beginner or an experienced amateur, why not try all three – just to complete your immersion in the fascinating world of Swiss Fine Watchmaking?
