The Beyer Watch

The design of this watch emulates the giant timepiece that hangs outside the Beyer shop. It has served as a trademark for decades, and can be seen from a long way off on the Bahnhofstrasse.

Watchmaking course – a journey inside a watch

01/06/2014

Do you know how a watch actually works? Perhaps you have read something about it or have even visited a manufacture? But you have probably never had the opportunity to assemble a watch yourself!

We regularly hold beginners' watchmaking courses for our clients at our own workshop. After a guided tour through our watch and goldsmiths' workshop, the small group of four participants are  familiarised with the intricate movement of the timepiece. Subsequently each member of the group can try their hand at dismantling a Unitas pocket watch movement and putting it together again, ably assisted by our expert watchmakers. 

Non-customers are also welcome to take part, whereby a fee of CHF 200.- will be charged.  Naturally, this amount will be refunded should you buy an item from our store at a later date. This watchmaking course makes an ideal gift; vouchers are available for purchase. 

Have we aroused your interest? We would be pleased to reserve a place for you on one of our watchmaking courses in 2015:
