Classes DELTA

Full day course

After a theoretical introduction on watchmaking, you sit at the workbench and execute the disassembly and reassembly of a movement thanks to the indications of Initium’s Master watchmaker. Then, you define the design of your mechanical watch by choosing among a range of high-end components.

After having lunch in the company of the Master watchmaker in an excellent restaurant, you assemble your favorite components. You fit the dial and the hands, case and clean the movement, to finish by the inspection of your watch thanks to different machines.

You bring home your Swiss made timepiece after the course.

C’était une magnifique expérience très enrichissante où on passe un très bon moment avec des passionnées d’horlogerie et où on en apprend énormément sur le fonctionnement et l’histoire de l’horlogerie.
