It was a fabulous experience. Everything was wonderful the people, the food and the fact that you can leave with your own watch is great.



Learn to recognize the different components of a watch and their functions. To see the heartbeat of time and not to see the time of a day pass. Leave at the end of the day with the pride of having a unique piece of jewelry on your wrist, created...



A small step towards watchmaking and a beautiful experience surrounded by very nice people. Very nice choice of material for the assembly of my watch. A meal with an explosion of flavor and worthy of this beautiful day.



Great day filled with laughter and discoveries! Thanks to the watchmaker for her help and patience. The meal was also exceptional. I will keep a wonderful memory of it and hope to come back soon!
