250 YEARS OF PATRIMONIAL HISTORY PROPELLED INTO A HIGH-TECH 21ST CENTURY
Switzerland, Le Sentier, 25 May 2012
Joux Valley Museum of Watchmaking (EHVJ) today celebrates its re-opening. For eight months the building has been humming. Not with the tick-tock of exceptional timepieces, but with workmen busy renovating the museum.

Regional tourism, too, will receive a new stimulus.
