Imier, a hermit and missionary hailing from the Ajoie region, arrives in the valley of the same name today in around the year 600 AD. The history of Saint-Imier begins here. With the establishment of the watch industry, the 18th century heralds a fundamental change: the sleepy farming village is transformed into an important industrial town. The 1.5-hour guided tour presents the history of this watch town.
