THOMAS PERAZZI, head of watches and wristwatches department at Christie’s Geneva
Watch enthusiasts should visit ... Patek Phillipe Museum and Musée International d’Horlogerie in Geneva. Make a point to stop by the many little boutiques of independent watchmakers such as MB&F and F.P. Journe. Short retreat ... I can’t seem to decide between The Bristol and Hotel President Wilson. They’re both classic and luxurious choices with top-notch service. Brunch by the beach ... La Buvette des Bains is where you’d want to be and to have a chill lunch on Lake Geneva. Geneva is ... a cruise, city, and mountain holiday all in one. Be prepared to enjoy it all. Dining musts ... Italian restaurant Il Lago at Four Seasons Hotel Geneva for the truffle carpaccio. Signature experiences ... Take a boat trip on Lake Geneva because a city with a lake needs to be visited from both the water and the land. I take a walk by Cathédrale SaintPierre everyday as it is close to my office. Take a stroll back in time at Parc des Bastions and admire the Reformation Wall.
