LA CITÉ DU TEMPS

Vintage plate 2020

Take some time for a trip to the watchmaking universe with a visit at the Cité du Temps located on the Pont de la Machine at the end of the lake where Rhône River resumes its path. The Genevan emblem was built in 1840 to supply water to the public fountains. It is now a space designed around time and art… The past, the future, the present, the stolen time, creative time... a timeless place. Swatch Group has set on the two floors of the building, a permanent exhibition on Swatch from its creation up to today - from the simplest to the craziest ones- and artists' temporary exhibitions. La Cité du Temps is also an events venue with large vaulted rooms and a breathtaking view of the lake and the Rhône. Art exhibitions bloom in this strategic place for a defined period of time in all its glory. You can take a pleasant and gourmet pause during the day at the restaurant lounge bar at the ground floor with the terrace overlooking Ile Rousseau, the Jet d'Eau and of course the Lake.

Le dernier étage de la Cité du Temps est consacré à 'exposition de montres Swatch classées par années, de 1983 à aujourd'hui. C'est très sympa et en plus c'est gratuit !

Le bâtiment abrite une exposition Swatch tout à fait remarquable, le tout dans un cadre très moderne. La décoration du restaurant Au Phil du Temps est superbe. Les expositions temporaires que j’ai vues sont hautes en couleurs et en créativité. A voir absolument !
