PARIS, 2016-May-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Les Journées Particulières is a full-fledged European event, proposing visits to LVMH Houses in France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, Poland and Switzerland. This year a new Swiss site joins the agenda, Louis Vuitton’s Fabrique du Temps watch manufacture.
Switzerland is synonymous with the most stunning luxury watch creations in the world. In the town of Meyrin, near Geneva, La Fabrique du Temps is a new-generation watch manufacture where Louis Vuitton teams have unprecedented creative independence. The site brings together all the métiers and talents in the grand tradition of horological craftsmanship, inspiring innovation and sharing of experience.
The manufacture is a celebration of time and travel, respecting rich tradition and inimitable craftsmanship. Workshops have a human scale, bathed in optimal daylight as master watchmakers, engineers, designers and other experts in time share their creative energy. Their common goal is to unlock and revisit the secrets of Haute Horlogerie, blending the exceptional spirit of luxury watchmaking with the dynamic momentum of the storied Maison. This singular environment feeds the imagination in a high-tech crucible.
The site is open during Les Journées Particulières without reservation, inviting visitors to discover this remarkable spirit as they tour the R&D bureau and the Assemblage, Haute Horlogerie and Cadran workshops. One or two people will even have a chance to take part in a “do it yourself” session at the end of the tour.
Another Swiss watchmaking site not to be missed is TAG Heuer’s headquarters and the museum at La Chaux-de-Fonds, also open without reservation during the Journées Particulières.
