Hi there - Neuchâtel

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and I would like to present myslef.

I'm 22, from Portugal, Lisbon, I just moved to Switzerland 5 months ago. I'm working in La Chaux-de-Fonds, near French border, in watches industry.

Since I'm new here I don't know much people yet, so I think this forum may be a good way to get new contacts.

I will check the events section regularly. Some outdoor activities would be great, a coffe is not bad too

Cheers!

Re: Hi there - Neuchâtel

Welcome - well you are in the right place for a watchmaker- wondering which one you work for, but understand you'd rather not tell.
There is a social group for Neuch that meets for a drink or kareoke from time to time. Enjoy the Jura- plenty of hiking, cycling and cross-country skiing - and sometimes downhill skiing/snowboarding- but this year has been a disaster so far. And of course, as per your avatar- skating on great lakes- like the Lac des Taillères near la Brévine- again this year has been awful. Where is your photo taken - I guess Vallée de Joux or Lac St Point.

Hi there Metallising, hope you're enjoying Switzerland so far. I imagine you're enjoying the sun up in La Chaux-de-Fonds... you probably get to see it a lot more than we do down by the lake!

Re: Hi there - Neuchâtel

Thank you all!

Odile, we make movements and sell to medium/high class watch brands. It's a factory, not a brand
Exactly, Vallée de Joux, what a great place to visit. That photo was taken after watching the movie Black Swan, Natalie Portman inspired me ahah. Just kidding, ballet is not my thing...
I haven't done those sports your are talking, I would love to join someone who is up to. I'm not new to sky, I can do red!

Kamarate, true, it's sunny up here comparatively to Neuchâtel. But snow alot! I had to spent alot with snow tyres...

Re: Hi there - Neuchâtel

Hi Metallising welcome to the forum!
I don't live far from La Chaux de Fonds, and I'm there a few times a week. Nice to have some people from around here on the forum!
As it's been said above - there's some social events going on in Neuchatel now - I take it from your post you live in Neuchatel, but work in La Chaux de Fonds. Maybe we can organise a get together in La Chaux one of these days, if anyone from Neuchatel area wants to see some new sights!

Re: Hi there - Neuchâtel

Cool, I'm in!
I assumed people won't know La Chaux-de-Fonds (guess I'm wrong) so I wrote "Neuchâtel" on the title but I live in La Chaux-de-Fonds.

Re: Hi there - Neuchâtel

LOL how could anybody not know La Chaux de Fonds
Anybody in the world who is involved with the watch industry will know about the town of course (otherwise only people like me who were born in the area).

La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle have of course become one of the Unesco world heritage site recently. Not because it is the most beautiful town in the world (although it does have some very nice Art Nouveau features) and is set in beautiful countryside, but because it is the only town in the world to have been built specifically for one industry - watch making, and the only "New Town' in CH built on the NY grid system. Well worth a visit, for the International Watch making museum, Le Corbusier's Villa Turque (now owned by Ebel and visitable only rare dates, as well as the Maison Blanche, the villa he built for his parents ( 1st Saturday of every month all year, and 3rd Saturday (April to October). The watch Museum I prefer is in fact in Le Locle, in the family home of the Nardin family (watches Ulysse Nardin).
