HH Minutes

"The FHH is a means of promoting the watchmaking segment so that it acquires a genuine cultural dimension."

Ludwig Oechslin, HH Minutes 2013, Question to the Cultural Council

The role of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie is to educate through training and inform the public about watches and watchmaking. Once a year, the Foundation presents a review of its activities to promote the culture of watchmaking in HH Minutes.

In 2013, among its many activities, the Foundation organised Swiss Day Against Counterfeiting. This was preceded by a short-films competition for the public and for students at art and design schools including HEAD in Geneva and ECAL in Lausanne. The Foundation also published the authoritative reference book "The Mastery of Time" in simplified Chinese, and curated a new exhibition titled "Horology, a child of astronomy". Meanwhile, the Foundation's encyclopaedic website and online magazine were relaunched with a fresh design and revised and expanded content.
