Yesterday, in Geneva, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) opened its doors to retailers and press from around the world. This by-invitation-only watch exhibition is one of the two most important shows of the first quarter of each year (Baselworld in March is the other). At this exclusive event, more than two dozen top watch brands and independent brands are showcasing their newest watches — watches destined to set the trends on wrists around the world for 2017.
The majority of the luxury brands exhibiting here are from the Richemont Group and they have spent years preparing their newest movements, calibers, complexities and works of art. Additionally, many other brands take advantage of the fact that so many watch lovers flock to the city for SIHH and piggy-back on the event — showing their newest timepieces in hotels that dot the city and surround the famous Geneva lake and fountain. The event promises to be full of new products, news and excitement, all of which we will bring to you in the coming weeks.
