Artisans' Playground - Artisans de Geneve

A day dedicated to future generations

Watchmaking has always aroused passion and wonder. We all remember discovering our first watch. Our inner child remembers this symbolic moment when time becomes quantified and shapes into a small object we can carry everywhere. One Wednesday a month, we open our workshop’s doors, four children and four watchmakers around a workbench to discover the craft’s secrets.
