The art and study of timekeeping has been an ancient tradition in Geneva. The city's watch industry was initiated somewhere in the mid 17th century, and Geneva has retained the status of a world leader in watch making ever since. Patek Phillipe, Omega, Swatch, and Frank Muller are a few of the most prominent names in the watch making industry, all emerging from this very city. The quality, however, comes at a fairly expensive price. A few of the leading stores are:
