Meet the watchmakers La Chaux-de-Fonds

Maison Duplain – La Chaux-de-Fonds

A visit to a watchmaking supplies and tool company where you’ll meet the owner, who will discuss the history of this family-run business.

What the activity involves

The owner will share the history of his family and of this traditional watch case producer specialised in clocks and pocket watches. During this session exploring the origins of La Maison Duplain you’ll also learn about watchmaking through a presentation of the various components that make up a watch (watch cases, dials, straps, etc.). This authentic experience can be combined with a “”mouth-watering”” sightseeing tour on the theme of “”UNESCO – watchmaking town planning””.
