AP "Design & Mastery" Masterclass
This is the second Masterclass launched by AP, after one in 2022 focused on the Royal Oak (no longer available... and I'm not talking about the watch!).
You will be taken through a journey across various aspects of high horology, both theoretical, through the brand's archives, and hands-on. The actual watchmaking part will include finishing techniques and the (of course partial) assembly of a mechanical movement.

How to book
There is very strong demand, you want to book as much in advance as possible (although worth noting the tool only allows to book 3 months out)
The Hotel des Horlogers right next door was inaugurated at the same time as the Musée Atelier, and is owned by the brand. It's an excellent hotel that blends very well in the local decorum. It can be a good idea to book lunch there, or go to the bar to chill out before and / or after your visit. Of course you can also book a stay there for a longer, more immersive time, especially if you combine with other visits such as Jaeger-LeCoultre.
