A watch-buying mission is a perfect way to bring home an authentic souvenir and learn about an important Swiss tradition. Start off by visiting the Patek Philippe Museum to get educated about the art of watch making and see some of Switzerland’s ultimate time-keeping masterpieces. Then visit a few Swiss watch boutiques to get an idea of style and price range. Along with Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin is one of the most historic Swiss brands. For something that’s sure to sparkle, check out Piaget with its range of jewel-encrusted wonders. If you are looking for a souvenir that’s less of an investment, but still a great Swiss watch, nothing beats a brightly colored Swatch.
