The best highlights from the 29th edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, the epicentre of Fine Watchmaking.
Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH): the exclusive and prestigious annual event in Geneva where the latest technical innovations, trends and artistry of precious watchmaking for the year are presented. Also where the shapers and movers of the Haute Horlogerie industry of the past, present and future converge.
The fair dates are from 14 to 17 January 2019. Not limited to exhibiting maisons, trade and media, end Haute Horlogerie customers and fine watchmaking lovers can also attend the fair from 3pm to 10pm on the open day (17 January 2019) of its showing.
From Hermès’ inaugural exhibition at SIHH in 2018, to the impending departures of Audemars Piguet and Richard Mille from 2020 onwards (a move in line with the strategic repositioning of their distribution channels), the world of haute horlogerie continues to evolve.
We look forward to bring you the best highlights as we join the exclusive community of professionals, journalists and influencers, experienced and aspiring collectors at this anticipated 2019 event.
