Masters of Time: A Watchmaker’s Tour of Switzerland and Germany
The Swiss are masters of time, establishing themselves as the world’s greatest timekeepers. Luxury watch craftsmen spend weeks, if not months, handcrafting the meticulous mechanisms. The hands of a luxury mechanical watch smoothly tick with nearly silent motion, a perfect blend of the traditional and the timeless. Tinker with an open watch to reassemble the pieces. Admire the chiseled woodwork of an artisan cuckoo clockmaker and listen to the call of the world’s largest cuckoo clock. Uncover the hidden details of the trade that turns clockwork into artwork during your exclusive 9-day hands-on tour of Switzerland and Germany.
The Swiss are world famous for routinely producing quality at the highest level, whether it be luxury watches, delectable chocolates, or the iconic Swiss army knives. However, they aren't only ones in Europe who have mastered their crafts. Italy has long prided itself as a leader in design, style, and fashion, from the powerful roar of a brand new Ferrari to setting new trends at Milan Fashion Week.
