Christmas is just around the corner. And before you know it, 2018 will usher in exciting new events with the New Year — including the annually anticipated Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie (SIHH). Set to take over Palexpo in Geneva from 15 to 19 January 2018, the five-day gathering will showcase the latest innovation in watchmaking from 34 of the most prestigious names in Haute Horlogerie.

In its the 28th year, SIHH 2018 sure seems to be bigger and grander than the last one with the confirmation that the present main hall will be expanded to incorporate Hermès to join the next year’s instalment of the international exhibit. The Carré des Horlogers section — reserved for artisan creators and independent workshops — will also have its floor space extended to invite newcomers DeWitt, Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud and Romain Gauthier.

2017’s new exhibitors like Ulysse, Girard-Perregaux, Grönefeld, MCT–Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps, Ressence, RJ-Romain Jerome and Speake-Marin are also expected to come back to promote fine watches and continuously participate in the discussion of luxury haute watches in a changing European and international climate.

But before these watch brands get the better of you, let’s take a look at those which have already announced the release of their limited-edition collections that would make you want to book a flight to Switzerland.
