Who we are

Founded in 2005 by Audemars Piguet, Girard-Perregaux and the Richemont Group, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) is a not-for-profit organisation that was established as a point of reference and neutrality for all subjects relating to watchmaking.

It has since focused its mission on spreading the international influence of watchmaking culture, and positions the watch as an object of art and culture.

What we do

The FHH relies for this on three complementary pillars intended for a wide audience, made up of industry professionals, individuals, insiders and of amateurs. 

The first, Watches and Culture by FHH, created in 2021, aims to bring watchmaking culture to life through the creation of original content, events and international meetings, intended jointly for the general public and professionals. 
As for the FHH Academy, it trains and certifies watchmaking knowledge for today's professionals and tomorrow's aficionados. Consisting of a rich and fun offering made up of training courses and certifications, its content is available in class or online in more than 20 countries, making watchmaking knowledge available to all. 
Finally, the FHH Forum, a discussion and debate platform designed by the industry for the industry, informs, questions and connects the leaders of the sector with the aim of shaping the ecosystem of the future.
