The Fondation Horlogère in Porrentruy was founded in 2001 and is dedicated to the history of the Jurassic watchmaking industry.

oday still, the watchmaker's shop occupies a dominating place in the Jura economy. Through the acquisition and the exhibition of the old documents and the unique parts, the Watch-making Foundation allows watch-making establishments to leave a track, a testimony through time. In this context, historic researches are made for companies, in particular for jubilees. Besides, a database of more than 9000 names of houses and Jura watchmakers was established.
