Become a watchmaker for a day

Have you ever wanted to be part of the fascinating world of watchmaking and have the chance to sit down at a watchmaker’s workbench yourself? Have you always dreamed of assembling and wearing your very own watch?

Les Ambassadeurs Zurich is now offering you the unique chance to do just that. Concentration, dexterity and precision are key concepts. Together with our experts, we invite you to a one-day event that will take you on a fascinating journey into the inner workings of a watch. Afterwards, you will have the chance to assemble a watch with dial, hands, crown and winding stem and then take it home with you. Before you leave, you will thoroughly inspect your timepiece and its precision.

As well as assembling the complex, mechanical, hand-wound movement of the watch (Unitas 6498-1), you will also put together the external look of your watch, with the opportunity to choose different dials, straps and hands for your watch. Finally, you will fit your personal timepiece with its hands, crown and winding stem before checking it for accuracy. All watches require after-care so you will also receive a Service Pass for your timepiece with a 2-year guarantee.


Do you know a watch connoisseur and want to give them a special gift? Here’s your chance to give them a unique experience. If you wish to purchase a voucher, Tanja Petrovic will be happy to assist you at [email protected] or by telephone on +41 44 227 17 17.
