About us

Vitrine de la Fondation

Established in 2001 at the instigation of Tony Müller, the Watch-making Foundation gives itself for mission the promotion and the protection of the Jura watch-making heritage. The efforts are largely given rhythm by the voluntary work of the members of the Foundation.

By the organization of exhibitions and events, it encourages the preservation of the watch-making know-how and its transmission. 

So, during almost four years, the Watch-making Foundation carried a project of restoration of a clock with unstable sphere preserved in Saint-Petersburg. This adventure allowed about forty apprentices of the schools of watch-making of Porrentruy and Morteau to approach a rare historic part and to live an enriching and unforgettable experience.
