MIH Gaïa

Swiss made, La Chaux-de-Fonds

The MIH Gaïa watch

The Musée international d’horlogerie reveals its new creation : the MIH Gaïa watch. The idea behind it is to support exceptional workmanship with the aim of preserving watchmaking heritage.

Why should I purchase an MIH Gaïa watch ?

Because you like it! But also because it embodies the values of the museum and of the Gaïa Prize. This example of quality local watchmaking demonstrates the MIH’s dual aim : to raise public awareness of the safeguarding of watchmaking heritage, by funding different projects to restore, document and showcase the museum’s collection, and to promote the expertise of regional watchmakers.

The funds generated by the MIH Gaïa timepiece will primarily enable the museum to study and restore a number of its iconic artefacts, such as the Maillardets’ Grand Magicien (1830) and François Ducommun’s Tellurium (early 19th century), and also to index, categorise and itemise the records associated with them.

One museum,
one city, eight partners

When the MIH issued invitations to work on a unique project aimed at safeguarding and showcasing watchmaking heritage, various regional experts from different fields came forward. These artisans, all based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, were eager and proud to contribute their technical expertise towards the different aspects of the watch, to develop a finished product of outstanding quality.
