Visual arts workshop, home of writer, workshop space and exchanges ... Place befitting the exercise of different disciplines. Within these walls, the association Luxor Factory is a tenant of an apartment and a workshop are allocated to the home workshop.


A little history

In 1905, at number 20 rue Alexis-Marie Piaget, in Le Locle, the architect F. Maspoli realized for Louis Sandoz-Vuille this complex mixed-housing factory. From 1935 to 1987, the building was the watchmaker of Luxor Watches SA, founded by Jean Hermann Brunner. Many exceptional pieces, enjoying an international reputation, were produced in his workshop until its merger with the brand Zenith International SA.




Three examples of timepieces produced in the 20th century by the Luxor workshops.
