What are the Club's initiatives?
The Club organises various initiatives in collaboration with watch manufacturers: invitations to presentations of new models, watchmaking lessons, factory visits.
How much does it cost to participate in events?
Participation in events is free of charge for members.
How much do manufacturing visits cost?
Visits are free of charge, including travel. The only additional expense is to travel to one of the major Italian cities from where connections to Switzerland or Germany depart (by plane, train or car).
How do I book a visit?
Once you have joined the Club, you are informed by email or phone of upcoming visits to the factory and you can make a reservation, again by phone or email.
How far in advance are you invited to a factory visit?
One month in advance, except in cases of force majeure.
Are there a limited number of visits?
Places for each visit are limited, so the first bookings received will be accepted. Priority is given to those who have never made a factory visit during the year. This means that if a member has already visited a manufactory during the 12 months, he/she will have to give way to someone who has not yet participated in a trip.
Who can guarantee that I will be able to visit a manufactory within the year of enrolment?
Care is taken to ensure that each member takes advantage of at least one visit during the membership year. When the membership deadline approaches, the member is invited with priority over others to the next factory visit.
Are there members who have been able to visit more than one factory?
Some of our members were able to visit two or three factories during one year.
How do you communicate with the Club?
