The Watchmaking Route

"We visited the watchmaking enterprise Louis Chevrolet in Porrentruy with a group of 10 people and we were fascinated by the world of watchmaking. I was quite impressed by these professionals working with such incredible precision. One employee was working at a machine which prints the hours onto the face of the watches, like a die stamp, all in one go. We were also able to observe laser engraving. You could spend hours there just watching, wondering, dreaming... The world of watchmaking is really exciting and worth discovering."
