The prestigious Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) opened the doors to its 26th edition in Geneva on Monday. Aviamost’s Editor-in-Chief Rita Boustany is there to bring us live coverage of the by invitation-only event and the novelties launched by the world’s finest watchmakers during the show.
Adding to the exclusivity of the event, which runs from January 18 to 22, only 15 brands are exhibiting at SIHH: Audemars Piguet, A. Lange & Söhne, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, Greubel Forsey, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger LeCoultre, Montblanc, Panerai, Parmigiani Fleurier, Piaget, Richard Mille, Roger Dubuis, Vacheron Constantin and Van Cleef & Arpels.
In addition to these brands and for the first time in its history, SIHH is presenting Carré des Horlogers, a space dedicated to nine artisan or independent watchmakers that have been changing the dynamics of fine watchmaking. These are: Christophe Claret, De Bethune, H. Moser & Cie, Hautlence, HYT, Kari Voutilainen, Laurent Ferrier, MB&F and Urwerk.
