Follow the tracks of the most famous watchmakers of the Valley of St-Imier and also of the small anonymous hands which worked, and still do, at the manufacturing of these watch-making treasures.

“The small valley of St-Imier gave birth to the great names in the watch making industry and this watch making trail led me right to the heart of a fascinating story. Between an illustrious local engraver at the court of Louis 16th and thousands of small, anonymous hands that have laboured and continued to labour for the benefit of these watch making treasures, my admiration remained boundless, as much for the work of some as the ingenuity of others.”
