Frédéric Savoye was born in 1916. After completing his studies in business, he became the director of Longines. Distinguished, cultivated and a person who loved to travel, he was also a collector at heart, who, in particular, possessed a priceless collection of Chinese porcelain, as well as a collection of clocks, which he willed to the Watch Museum. He died in 1993 in the Canton of Valais.
The Savoy room contains 22 of the 23 Swiss and French clocks bequeathed by Frédéric Savoye. One rare and important piece, a clock destined to be placed in a church sacristy, and which tolls the hours of the liturgical services, is exhibited on the ground floor of the Château des Monts.
