SIHH 2008 Trade Show Review

by

Yesterday, I traveled from Basel to Geneva early in the morning and spent there from noon to 8 pm at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, Switzerland. This was the 18th time the SIHH took place in Geneva and next year it will start on January 19th, 2009! This means it will take LESS than one year to receive news & new models from the following brands that present their novelties during this exclusive event.

This year the following brands were present at the SIHH:

+  Richemont brands:
- Cartier
- A. Lange & Sohne
- Jaeger –LeCoultre
- IWC
- Mont Blanc
- Panerai
- Vacheron Constantin
- Van Cleef & Arpels
- Dunhill
- Baume & Mercier
- Piaget

+ Independent brands
:
- Audermars Piguet
- Girard Perregaux
- Jean Richard
- Parmigiani
- Roger Dubuis

Hereby a review of the fair with some snap shops. In advance I want to apologize for the poor quality of the photographs, this had two reasons: some window cases & the lighting were very pour and we were in huge rush.
