The FHH Academy also offers watchmaking experiences for you to step into the complicated world of watchmaking…

Our workshops provide the opportunity to discover the intricacy and skills required for Fine Watchmaking. From gears to springs, from escapement to the sprung balance, each movement component is taken apart, then reassembled. Guided by professionals, participants handle a mechanical movement exactly as a watchmaker would.

Our conferences, with their short format, treat a variety of watchmaking topics, making them dynamic and accessible to all types of public. Discover the mechanics of a watch, identify the watchmaking trends of the year or learn about the secrets of the history of watches by plunging into our conferences...
