Students at the School of Applied Arts in La Chaux de Fonds were awarded their Horological Design diploma.

On November 17th, at the Musée International d’Horlogerie in La Chaux-de-Fonds (MIH), ten young designers from the La Chaux-de-Fonds school of applied arts were presented with their Horological Design diploma. The course, which has run since 2009, enables young jewellers, engravers, watchmakers and micromechanics to study in a watchmaking environment.

Students had to create a watch or clock exterior on the theme Opposition/Composition by referencing the aesthetics, culture, science and techniques of any two periods between 1920 and 1990 in a project which they took from drawing board to completion. Students were free to use any materials they wished.

The finished projects are on display at the MIH in La Chaux-de-Fonds until December 1st 2015.
