International Clock-making Museum, La Chaux-de-Fonds

"As I entered the foyer, I imagined I was in the middle of a big clock. The displays take us through the mysteries of time passing. Either as an observer or as a participant in surprising little experiments, our eyes are constantly drawn by the beauty or ingeniousness of the movements displayed! We see the watch in all its forms, from utilitarian to precious. We see the big brands and wonder at the luxury and prestige of the pieces. As I leave the museum, I take some air in the park and come face to face with what they call “Le Carillon”. Our eyes run over the machine and try to understand how it works. This visit is an exciting journey through time."
