The watchmaking industry came together in the Genevan town of Plan-les-Ouates from 12 to 14 October 2023 for Autour du temps (Around the Clock). The exhibition showcased the full range of watchmaking skills and expertise.

A total of 30 companies from the sector were present, including Rolex, Piaget and Patek, and the organisers arranged almost 100 visits to prestigious manufactures or independent watchmakers during the three-day event. Subcontractors, innovators, schools, and training centres, such as the Geneva School of Watchmaking, were also on hand to provide advice and information to the public.


Over 2,000 visitors

This deep dive into the world of watchmaking gave visitors the opportunity to slip into the shoes of a watchmaker, to assemble and disassemble watch movements and to practise their skills on the gears. More than 2,000 visitors took part, including those attending the conferences and watch walks.

Xavier Magnin, the administrative councillor behind the event, said: “Autour du temps confirms the interest shown by the people of Geneva in the world of watchmaking. The municipality is delighted by the success of this exhibition – we’ve attracted double the number of visitors compared to 2021.”
