Kinetic art gets a fabulous exposition in this exciting gallery. Imaginative and novel creations are a delight to experience.

Antoine Dufillo's Porsche 997 Targa Blue is superb. He is following his uncle and grand uncle in this chosen creative field. His work is from 2020 and pays homage to the Targa Sportscar that first appeared in 2004.

Ixoost produces excellent sound systems and a dramatic one, Audio System Radial6 Chromed, is here.

Willem van Weeghel, a Dutch artist, is well represented with Three Shades of Blue and 4 Lines and 4 Half Lines being amongst the oeuvre.

An interpretation of a sea urchin and a great Chronomeans, the latter by Abrasax, are striking.

A flying visit into here looking at the equally fascinating/expensive items in this gallery. At most you need 30 minutes to look at the 20 or so items in here which you think would look cool in your home until you realise you have to remortgage said home to afford them.

Worth a look if passing.

As a very ugly person. I often look for fun things to take the attention away from my grotesque appearance. These watches are just what the doctor ordered, after buying my first MB&f (HM5) nobody in Mykonos even noticed i was bald. Then i purchased an HM2 and HM7 and i don’t even need to trim my beard anymore. People don’t even notice my homeless looks with the tourb spinning on my wrist. Recently i grabbed the MAD 1 piece and it’s a perfect travel watch, i just wish it came out 20 years ago when people had spinners on their car. (Insert rap song with spinner reference) Also Thibault was wonderful to deal with when picking out random and wild time pieces. Would love to visit again as it’s like a toy store for mechanically inclined adults.

Some people have classed this as a museum but I think it really is an art gallery of assorted sculptural objects rather than paintings. The works of art on display are truly amazing especially the moving canvases. Prices range from about CHF300 to thousands!! The owner was very pleasant and only too happy to show me his MB&F watch which I found out was worth about £68,000 - very nice! Well worth a visit and it’s free as it’s more of a gallery/shop. Will take about 10-20 mins to wander round the store - it’s only small. Enjoy!

A friend who is obsessed with watches told us about this place - wouldn't have known about it otherwise - and since we were already in the Old Town we decided to stop in. It's a small gallery (free) with truly incredible pieces of art/machinery. The man working there took time to explain each item to us and it was all just very cool. Would definitely recommend.

Went on a watch based holiday to Geneva and read the reviews about this place so decided we had to pay it a visit.

It was quiet in Geneva when we visited and we were the only people I the gallery. The attendant was fantastic - really friendly and took the time to talk us through all the pieces, including the concept and mechanics of each.

MB&F watches are incredible but it was the Chronomeans clock that left us speechless. Some wonderful and innovative designs!

The spectacular mechanics and wonderful treatment we received made us feel really special and I would highly recommend anyone with an interest in watches/clocks/machinery to pay the gallery a visit if in Geneva.

Probably one of the most unique experiences in Geneva (or any other city by the way).
The M.A.D. Gallery curates artists specialized in mechanical or kinetic art - and mix them with MB&F horlogical machines. Objects and creators never heard of, and pieces which are all truly amazing. Hervé, the manager, will spend as much time as necessary to take you round and explain each artist and piece - never once departing from his incredible big smile and enthusiasm.
They introduce a new artist nearly every six to eight weeks so it is always worth passing by.
A must see and experience

Rather rude people. Small gallery. I have a genuine interest in what they had but they were neither particular welcoming or helpful. Seemed preoccupied, and perhaps did not think that I was worth their attention.
