Watchmaking town Le Locle
"- First of all, we`re shown a fresco depicting the Ronde des Heures.
- It’s like this town is built on an upside-down forest.
- I heard the fascinating story of a brand of precision watches that won more than 1,500 awards!
- We went past factories where thousands of men and women worked and, apparently, before making watches, even the men made lace in this region!
- We learned that, for nearly 300 years, clock-makers have been inventing all sorts of extra features for watches, such as calculation functions and alarms, making them ever more precise and ever smaller – and more beautiful too!"
