  • News 597
The Manufacture shares its passion for excellence with fans of fine watchmaking.

From 13 to 17 September 2010, a week dedicated to lovers and connoisseurs of fine watchmaking took place in Zurich. The privileged visitors experienced a dreamlike journey through a space dedicated to “Invention by movement”, making discovery after discovery, admiring technical feats and masterful craftsmanship alike, immersing themselves in the history of the Manufacture. For a week, lovers and connoisseurs of Haute Horlogerie were able to feast their eyes on the latest new creations unveiled at the SIHH 2010, such as the Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire; the Master Memovox, which so uniquely symbolises the spirit of a world in action, and the Master Memovox International. Finally, they enjoyed an exclusive viewing of the Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication, whose three complications marry the proudest of traditions with cutting-edge technology: a minute repeater, a flying tourbillon and a zodiac calendar. During the week, guests were offered a variety of watchmaking lessons (the basic operation of the Calibre Jaeger-LeCoultre 875 and the dismantling and reassembly of a Reverso Grande Date). They also witnessed an exclusive presentation of exceptional timepieces, and met craftsmen, artists and technicians representing the 40 professions housed within the Grande Maison. Murat Yakin and Hakan Yakin, footballers and Brand Ambassadors, who attended the event, were also able to enjoy this unique learning opportunity, which plunged them into the heart of the Manufacture that sets the standard in fine watchmaking.
