Spent four hours poring over the historic and bejewelled watches, fascinated by the engineering aspects and the beauty. What a collection.

As someone with no background in engineering and a poor record of timekeeping, I found the whole experience to be absolutely fascinating and visitor-friendly, from the free lockers and water cooler in the basement to the amazing making-of animations, which are a feat of engineering in their own right. Seek out the tiny birds who pop out of the pistol-shaped pieces and watch the video explaining how they work. I found it absolutely mesmerising. Bear in mind, you need a couple of hours to get the best out of your visit - we arrived just over an hour before it closed and ended up missing the film screening. Costs about CHF10 to go in I think (less if you're a student under 25) - well worth it in my opinion.
