Espace horloger

For more than two hundred and fifty years, the Vallée de Joux has revelled in the success of its watchmaking industry. The watchmaking businesses of today are guardians of this long tradition with the best proof for this being the prestigious brands that have long been established in the Vallée de Joux. There is a collection of antique wall clocks dating back to between the 16th and 19th centuries, an exhibition detailing the history of watchmaking, and the reconstruction of an old watchmaking workshop and many temporary exhibitions.

Espace horloger in Sentier presents current productions by the main watchmaking companies in Joux Valley, the cradle of grande complication watches.

Rochers-de-Naye – high above the lake

The prominent rocks of Rochers-de-Naye above Montreux constitute one of the most beautiful vantage points in the region. At 2,045 meters above sea level the view sweeps across Lake Geneva and the surrounding Alps. Or into the burrows of marmots.

The rocks (les rochers) – towering 2042 meters above the town, are as much a part of Montreux as the Chillon Castle. Already back in 1892 the first small steam train made its way up to Rochers de Naye from Glion.
