The new year is already upon us and the world of watchmaking is running at full swing with the start of SIHH 2019. It’s also known as the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, which is one half of the two most exclusive Swiss watch trade fairs in the world. This yearly affair sees the best of the best in the world of haute horlogerie coming together to showcase upcoming timepieces for the rest of the year.
Unfortunately, many big name brands will not be making an appearance on the floor after this year’s edition, mostly due to wanting to deal directly with its consumers. The list includes the likes of both Audemars Piguet and Richard Mille alongside Van Cleef & Arpels, to name a few.
However, that doesn’t mean that SIHH 2019 is a disaster waiting to happen. Bovet is one such brand that will be making its debut at SIHH 2019 while both Breitling and Bucherer have recently been inducted as members into the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FIHH), which manages SIHH.
Aside from the obvious, SIHH also plays host to many other iconic watchmakers who have come to make a name for themselves. Be sure to scroll down to check out some of the latest luxury watches that made its debut in Geneva, Switzerland.
