Introducing the MIH Gaïa watch

The Musée international d’horlogerie’s second timepiece has been unveiled and released in La Chaux-de-Fonds in honour of the the 25th edition of the eponymous prize.The idea behind this creation is to finance exceptional workmanship with the aim of preserving horological heritage.


he Musée international d’horlogerie introduced its first MIH watch back in 2005, which came with an innovative annual calendar feature. Almost 15 years on, the museum presents a new creation, the Gaïa watch, which pursues two aims: to raise public awareness of the safeguarding of watchmaking heritage, by funding different projects to restore, document and showcase the museum’s collection, and to promote the expertise of regional watchmakers.
