Build Your Own Swiss Watch in Geneva

Generations of master watchmakers and their unassailable craftsmanship give Switzerland a reputation as the watchmaking capital of the world. Join an Initium watchmaker to learn the tricks of their highly secret craft, and make a watch of your own!

Visit Initium’s workshop, housed in a 17th-century building in historic downtown Geneva. After a brief introduction to the workings of mechanical watches, sit down at a workbench to begin work on your own timepiece. 

Customize your creation by selecting from a range of high-quality parts, explained by your host. Your instructor will help you through the most delicate processes, guiding your screwdriver and tweezers with their mastery. The final product is yours to keep.
