Watchmaking course in our workshops

Create your own Swiss watch in our workshops

Unravel the mysteries of a mechanical movement in the company of one of our Master watchmakers and get initiated to the ancestral art of Swiss watchmaking.
With the help of your screwdriver and tweezers, feel the heartbeat of the watch you are assembling yourself: a unique experience!

Our courses

Initium courses are open to everyone and do not require any watchmaking knowledge or skills. Discover our different offers and our three workshops. We gladly accompany you in the course choice and together, we will find the perfect date for you.

In order to keep an intimist and welcoming atmosphere, we limit the number of participants. Beyond four, we invite you to check our group offers.

Whether you are a group of friends, a company or an agency suggesting various experiences to your clients, Initium offers activities that are tailored to your needs.

We take in groups until twelve participants in our workshops, and until a hundred participants in the location of your choice. In particular, we can organize group courses in hotels or other facilities, in Switzerland or abroad.

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 !

Sophie

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
