It was the first place I visited in Geneva and if you like Swatch watches, this is your place! The exhibition was very well organized and it is interesting to see the different watches all over the years. The staff is very nice and they have a cafeteria if you want to have a drink or relax a bit.

There's literally nothing there: just Swatch watches (reportedly all the models ever created) lined up endlessly, with barely a word of explanation and a couple of old commercials. By the way, I never realized until now that Swatch was making such ugly watches... I don't recommend anybody to visit this, except if you're a real Swatch maniac (even in that... More
