HEAD students' exhibition : the culmination of a series of workshops
As part of the "MyWayWatch Concept" workshop in the Master's program in Watch Design at HEAD - Geneva, and with the help of consultant Vanessa Lecci, the students created, for the second year running, objects designed to breathe new life into Neuchâtel's clocks. Time to Watches 2024 will host an exhibition of these revisited Neuchâtel clocks: Chapter 2.

The Watch Design Chair of HEAD – Genève 
The Watch Design Chair offers a specialised course dedicated to watch design and culture. Watchmaking, the Swiss heritage industry par excellence, is a complex field of expression that mixes history with technique, creativity and economy. In fact, there is not one watchmaking industry, but several: the luxury watch, the entry-level watch, the professional watch, the lifestyle accessory. All these watches revolve around a same centre of gravity, design: the heart and soul of everything that makes Swiss watches unique, and its underlying creativity and ability to reinvent itself constantly.
For a long time, the impetus came from the industry itself, but the challenge of creativity has become so predominant that an academic response has become necessary. The Watch Design Chair is precisely intended to complement the industry, to help renew it, as a source of inspiration and innovation, with a sense of freedom and transversality that watch brands, by nature, cannot achieve alone.
