Nouveau Musée de Bienne

Bienne's main history museum is not limited to watches, but it has a neat, permanent section dedicated to the city's horological past, with a few particularly interesting old Rolexes on display. It is located in a lovely area, a 10 min walk from the lake, a 5 min walk for the old town, and right next to a great antique clock store with a good selection of JLC Atmos. The museum has a pleasant garden where you can have a drink or ice cream when the weather is nice.
