First Swiss Watchmaker Festival in Yverdon-les-Bains VD.

The Swiss Watchmaking Festival is taking place in Yverdon-les-Bains VD from Friday to Sunday. The event aims to promote the knowledge of watchmaking and preserve its heritage. Around 30 independent watchmakers, craftsmen, collectors, trainers and designers and associations will be attending the event at the Explorit Centre. It is not a trade show, but a “playful festival” focused on exchange and partnerships. There will be demonstrations, stands, films about watchmaking and concerts. Visitors can immerse themselves in the watchmaking process, from the development of a watch to the production of a gear to the assembly. The festival invites people to explore all the creative steps that contribute to Swiss excellence.nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
