Swiss haute horlogerie Audemars Piguet has announced its first masterclass. Named Crack History’s Code, the four-hour experience combines an immersive experience starting with a visit to the Musee Atelier and the masterclass itself, where you learn the ins and outs of the intricate art of watching making.
Ever since June 2020, the Musee Atelier Audemars Piguet, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, has been open to the public, providing a unique perspective on the region, Vallee de Joux’s rich watchmaking history, and displaying over 300 timepieces that span over two centuries of ornate craftsmanship.
The masterclass will allow its participants to assemble one of the manufacturer’s historic watch movements under the guidance of an expert. Additionally, the participants will be given a chance to experiment with refining decorations on a piece specifically designed for the occasion and will be taking everything they create home.
“Since its creation in 1875, our manufacture has been committed to enhancing the craftsmanship specific to the Vallée de Joux and perpetuating it generation after generation. This Masterclass helps perpetuate an art that makes the heart of our region beat,” says Jasmine Audemars, chairwoman of the board of directors.
The classes will take place on Thursday afternoons from 3pm to 7:30pm and available in English, French, and German. Visit museeatelier-audemarspiguet.com to book.
