After a theoretical introduction on watchmaking by Initium’s Master watchmaker, you define the design of your mechanical watch by choosing a movement, a case, a dial, hands and a bracelet among a range of high-end components.

Then, you assemble your favorite components, 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.


Super expérience ! Je me suis retrouvée la seule participante, le cours ne pouvait pas être mieux. Les explications étaient claires et le matériel à disposition était magnifique. Merci pour cette découverte, ma montre est superbe !


L’équipe est très accueillante, très compétente et précise pour le montage et les explications. L’environnement est top, et le repas de midi aussi. :) Chaudement recommandé
