The apprentices of Time, Le Locle

"Passionate about watchmaking since my childhood, I have always dreamed to put myself in a watchmaker's shoes and to discover a precious know-how. This is why I decided to participate in the watchmaking workshop The Time's Apprentices to build my own watch. During a half day training course the workshop instructor made me discover the fascinating world of watchmaking which involves challenges and meticulousness. This was a unique experience for me, an unforgettable memory : a watch that I made myself!"
