Programme of the week
Geneva Watch Tour
Geneva Watch Tour, Bucherer, and the GPHG exhibition
The Fine Watch Club will be unveiling Geneva’s horological foundations, from its historical roots to the epitome of its contemporary art form.
Geneva Watch Tour
The Geneva Watch Tour (GWT) is a tour designed to visit Geneva while passing in front of hundreds of watch boutiques and numerous monuments that represent the horological roots of Geneva, all as a way of discovering why the “Cité de Calvin” has become the watchmaking capital of the world.
Arguably the biggest retailer in the world and prominent figure in the Swiss watchmaking industry in relation to Rolex, Bucherer has just completely renovated its historical building on the rue du Rhône and opened an entire floor dedicated to certified pre-owned watches. Visit this temple of luxury watchmaking and discover the many surprises it holds amongst its rare pieces.
Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève Exhibition
After a convivial Genevan lunch in the company of the Fine Watch Club’s Managing Director, members will visit the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, where the 84 watches selected for the GPHG will be exhibited in a spectacular setting—and some pieces can even be handled (with care!). The award winners will have been announced the night prior. In this environment filled with cultural significance, the Watch Photo Awards (created by our parent company, GMT Publishing), will also hold the opening of its 2019 exhibition. The 60 photos selected for this international watch photography competition will adorn the walls of the museum.
In order to best welcome members in an exclusive setting, only 10 spots are available for this day, and only one guest per member is permitted.
All-inclusive price per person: CHF 250.-
*Members can participate in as many days as they like.
