Where Hess watches are made

The manufacture is located directly next to the ascent to the Luzern Hofkirche, in an easily accessible corner of Switzerland’s most beautiful city. The show window offers a first glimpse into the small workshop and lets you observe the watchmaker at work. Walter Hess would be happy to show you the HESS collection and its large-format microcosm in a personal conversation.

Whether you’re alone, with a partner, or in a group of up to 10 persons – the Hesses would be delighted to host you. Take the time to escort your guests in the realm of tradition-steeped Swiss craftsmanship. During the tour, Walter Hess will show you step by step how his exclusive timepieces are made, how they are assembled and adjusted, and which machines and tools are involved in the process.

Atelier visitor comments

“Walter, we want to thank you again for the marvelous tour you gave us April 17th of your beautiful watch shop and gallery. We were enlightened by the tour and enriched by the hospitality of you and your wife. Your watches are breathtaking and seeing them made for us was truly fascinating. Continued success to you.”

Perry and Patricia R., guests from U.S.A.

“Many thanks for the exciting insights into your atelier last Saturday! We all enjoyed the tour very much and, during a meal later on also had interesting discussions about mechanical watches, your work, and the concept behind it. The passion with which you pursue your artisanship was palpable.”

Stefan S., guest from Switzerland

“Our guests had a great time during their visit, so we want to again express our gratitude for your time and the very authentic visit on your premises. Your in-depth understanding of the special expectations of our guests was highly appreciated as was your very flexible support when the issue was to organize the visit. The guests were particularly impressed with the possibility of asking personal questions about your life.”
