Temporary exhibition "La Neuchâteloise"

La "neuchâteloise", or Neuchâtel clock, adorns countless interiors, apartments and cabinet and state rooms beyond the region's borders.

A familiar and commonplace piece, with its easily recognisable classical shape, the Neuchâtel clock is an iconic object, the perfect blend of technical and aesthetic expertise.

A century after the publication of Alfred Chapuis' "Histoire de la Pendulerie neuchâteloise" (History of Neuchâtel clockmaking), the Le Locle Watchmaking Museum in Château des Monts and the International Watchmaking Museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds are reappraising the history and destiny of the Neuchâtel clock in a major joint exhibition.
