  • Very beautiful museum that you absolutely have to visit in Mons. The exhibition of many objects related to watchmaking, each more beautiful than the other, is worth a visit. There are a very large number of extraordinary clocks, watches and many other things related to precision mechanics. Mr. Duesberg's collection is simply stunning. Thank you to the owner for his kindness.
