Swiss Precision

By Linda Tancs

The quality of Swiss timepieces is legendary.  And why shouldn’t it be?  Those talented artisans have been perfecting it since its debut in the 16th century.  The cradle of the industry is the Joux Valley.  Of course that’s where you can expect to find a museum dedicated to the art of Swiss watchmaking.  Recently reopened after a months-long renovation, Joux Valley Museum of Watchmaking is an interactive museum combining traditional exhibition space with hands-on training and demonstration.  The current exhibit traces the changing face of watchmaking, celebrating the Technical College’s 111th anniversary graduating watchmakers.
