Augmented reality visit, La Chaux-de-Fonds
"We set off on a journey of discovery through the urban landscape of the watchmaking industry in La Chaux-de-Fonds, following the itinerary we had downloaded onto our tablet. We were guided by Mr Docillant, the factory boss of a watchmaking enterprise, and Gérard Calibro, one of his workers. This interactive visit starts in the age of small workshops and ends in the industrial era. What's more, we were able to use our tablet to find old watch-making establishments and to discover what the interiors of these buildings were like in the olden days, with the help of historic videos and photos. By visiting the carefully selected locations on this guided walk, we were able to travel back in time and relive the dazzling development of the watchmaking industry in this region!"
