Assemble your own ochs und junior settimana in La Chaux-de-Fonds!
We are very excited to offer an exclusive opportunity for you to visit La Chaux-de-Fonds and assemble your very own settimana watch in the ochs und junior atelier!
While there are a lot of watch making courses and experiences out there, we feel that ours is a bit special.
The day begins in the morning with a quick coffee and a tour of the ochs und junior atelier. Then you will suit up and get down to business! Waiting for you at your workbench will be the case, movement, crown, hands… everything you need to assemble your own settimana! And not just any settimana, you get to choose your favorite version!
Not an experienced watchmaker? Not to worry! Our master watchmaker will be there to guide you through the process, step by step. By the time the quitting bell rings, your future time machine will be complete (at least the first stage of assembly), and passed over to your teacher (our watchmaker) who will spend the next two weeks or so timing, adjusting and testing it.
Sabina Brägger, the designer who makes the straps for ochs und junior, will be on hand. She will also help you choose your ochs und junior strap which she will then make specifically to fit you and your settimana.
You can’t do your best work on an empty stomach! Part of your ochs und junior experience includes lunch on site, followed by either a walking tour of La Chaux-de-Fonds, or a visit to the MIH (the Musée international d’horlogerie). Your day concludes upon you return to the atelier for a coffee or apéritif.
Your settimana will go through the same quality control processes as every ochs und junior watch. It will be tested, timed, and adjusted for about two weeks. Once it has passed its “final exam”, it will be shipped to you at your home address, a lifelong reminder of your visit to ochs und junior in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
This exclusive experience, your “settimana day” in La Chaux-de-Fonds includes the supervision of the assembly of your watch and the quality control testing and shipping to you, lunch and apéritif, a city tour with a visit to Le Corbusier’s Maison Blanche, or a visit to the MIH watch museum.

settimana limited = CHF 3,800 (incl. 7.7% VAT; only a few watches still available)
