The development of the Swatch Group is marked by numerous exceptional sites that illustrate the stages in its evolution.
All around the world, Swatch Group buildings are seen as icons of outstanding architecture dedicated to the art of watchmaking and the promotion of the arts in general.
The recently renovated Omega Museum, the oldest museum in Switzerland dedicated to a single watch brand, features items representing the brand's entire history. Located at one of Geneva’s most prestigious addresses, La Cité du Temps is an iconic landmark of watchmaking history, as is the extraordinary Nicolas G. Hayek Center inaugurated in Tokyo’s Ginza district in 2007. Then there is the former Glashütte watchmaking school which, with funding from the Swatch Group, has been transformed into a museum devoted to the history of watchmaking. These are now joined by the Swatch Art Peace Hotel which is housed in Shanghai’s legendary Peace Hotel.
