The high profile clockmaking sector is having a lucky strike on 2020. We will let you know in advance, if you are a watch lover, save the date and go to one of the most expected events in the world! In today’s post, we approach the Salon International de la
(SIHH) of Geneva. On this occasion, its 30th edition brings significant news regarding the previous ones. Do you want to know when it is celebrated and how it will be different? Keep reading this post and find out everything.
If you really value watches more than any other personal object, it will be good to know the information that we propose in this post. We also review the most outstanding pieces of the last SIHH held at the beginning of the year. And in case you can’t go to the next one, don’t worry; I’m sure there will be many other watch – themed events to which you can attend.
Throughout its history, the SIHH already accumulates 29 editions since its launch. In it, a lot of professionals and leading brands meet. From Cartier, IWC or Audemars Piguet to small, small-scale watchmakers focused on more exclusive and wealthy buyers. These show their newest products, technologies and latest inventions that will revolutionize the industry. It is also the ideal place to perceive what the trends will be.
The main difference on SIHH 2020 is related to the date of celebration. Normally it takes place during the month of January. However, and with the intention of celebrating itatthe same time of another of the most important watchmaking events in the world, Baselworld, both will be held in April. In this way, it facilitates travel to all those who are interested and professionals.
Another significant change is its nomenclature. From now on, it will be called Watches & Wonders Geneva. In addition, there will also be a change in format, which will include watch activities in the city of Geneva.
At this point in the post, we imagine you would like to remember what were the highlights of the last showroom. If we had to define it in a few elements, we would highlight the simplicity, going back to classic style, the downsizing of the spheres, the use of leather and, of course, high technology. We show you some examples of watches:
LANGE & SÖHNE Zeitwerk Date. 90,500 euros
It was one of the most praised pieces in the hall. It is a first class watch. In this new version, the date has been introduced and the window that used to have has been removed, to avoid confusion with those responsible for indicating the hours and minutes. Therefore, a scale has been added around the sphere. The caliber is very fine and its power reserve already reaches 72 hours. The case that carries it is 44.2 cm white gold and the dial is solid silver.
JAEGER-LECOULTRE Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel. 36,300 euros
The blue, as predominant color, and relief for sphere that achieves a spectacular visual effect when the light is reflected on its surface. These are the most striking data of the watch. It performs date and moon phases. The case, like the previous one, is white gold, in this case 39mm.
VACHERON CONSTANTIN FiftySix Complete Calendar. 22,800 euros
Also with the blue dial but with an exclusive tone of the collection. It has several versions but highlights the one that has a complete calendar. The case is 40 mm steel.
PIAGET Possession. 18,500 euros
It has a beautiful cherry red color that reaches not only the dial but also the strap (which is interchangeable). The bezel has 46 diamonds. The case is made of 34 mm rose gold with quartz movement.
The light is reflected in the curves of this beautiful watch designed by Ini Archibong and signed by the legendary Hermès brand. The dial is tremendously soft thanks to the domed sapphire crystal.
De Jaeger-LeCoultre Dazzling Rendez-Vous Night & Day
A modern and fine watch. Its design is exclusive and has a new griffe adjustment technique. The numbers we find on its dial, made of pearl, draw floral motives. They also have two rows of diamonds.
