Complication watches at the Musée international d'horlogerie.
Alarm clock, calendar, self-winding mechanism, chime, chronograph, world time displays, tourbillon : There are many functions which enrich the hour, minute and second displays on the watches we wear today and add to our fascination for them. Since when have timepieces been equipped with what kinds of complications ? Why were they developed ? What technical aspects make each one special ?
The treasures presented here all come from the famous collections at the Musée international d'horlogerie in la Chaux-de-Fonds and newly acquired in the last few years.
