The 29th Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie is just around the corner. Set to kick off in Genève on the 14th of January, it will run for 3 days filled with class and luxury. SIHH is organized by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie which preserves its core values of quality and excellence. Already in its 29th edition, SIHH gives its visitors a 360° view of horological expertise.
This design event gives the spotlight to each and every brand inside a thoughtfully designed setting, always remaining true to its fundamental mission as an important and exclusive rendezvous for the sector.
SIHH is the place to visit for designer watches lovers in January – it is now open to the general public and not only professionals. There, visitors can discover the latest collections, meet other professionals, spot future trends, and exchange with the 18 Historic Maisons and the 17 independent artisan-creators inside the Carré des Horlogers.
Being at its 29th edition, SIHH has always stood at the center of the evolving global watch market and, over the years, has grown into a unique meeting place for the industry of luxury watches becoming a must-visit to jewelry lovers worldwide.
Known as the more exclusive of the two main Swiss watch trade fairs (and the more enjoyable), SIHH has consistently invited more exhibitors, more press and more attendees.
There will be 35 exhibitors at SIHH 2019, 18 historic watch brands and 17 highly exclusive and, in some cases, experimental independent watchmakers. They are as follows:
Among many others, the historic maisons A.Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Bovet, Cartier, Hermès, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Piaget, and Montblanc will be exhibiting. In the Watchmakers Square, some names like Armin Strom, Christophe Claret, Grönefeld, H. Moser & Cie, Hautlence, and Laurent Ferrier will be there as well.
Several companies have revealed some of the watches they’ll be unveiling at SIHH 2019. While some brands will only reveal their best pieces during the trade fair, there are some early trends that include a focus on case shapes as well as different variations of celestial themes. Take a look at some of them:
