In 2009, Beat Haldimann won the highest award for watchmaking – the Prix Gaia from the Musée international d'horlogerie in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland – for his unique central tourbillon.

Guided tours can be arranged around the works.


Central Switzerland should consider itself lucky – the old Lorzen spinning works is now home to Cimier's innovative watch-manufacturing.

You can make an appointment to visit the production works and see the entire collection.

The box is designed with inlay technology (using wooden mosaic) and can feature scenes from various stages in a person's life.
