Watches & Wonders or the new SIHH

From April 25th to 29th 2020, the leading names in Fine Watchmaking will be in Geneva for the 30th edition of SIHH which is renamed Watches & Wonders Geneva.

This new format will welcome 31 watch brands including MB&F and H. Moser & Cie. They join the Historic Maisons after four years as part of the Carré des Horlogers, which will continue to spotlight the most talented independent watchmakers and in 2020 sees the arrival of five new brands.

This year 17 Historic Maisons gather within this unique setting to present their creations and to celebrate watchmaking excellence. They are A. Lange & Söhne, Baume & Mercier, Bovet, Cartier, Girard-Perregaux, Hermès, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger-LeCoultre, MB&F, H. Moser & Cie., Montblanc, Panerai, Parmigiani, Piaget, Roger Dubuis, Ulysse Nardin and Vacheron Constantin.

Reserved since 2016 for independent artisan-creators, in 2020 the Carré des Horlogers welcomes 14 brands. A catalyst for creativity, this space sees the arrival of five new exhibitors. Fabergé, renowned for its imperial eggs and relaunched in 2007, dazzles with its stunning watch and jewellery creations; Arnold & Son, a Swiss Fine Watch brand whose origins go back to the renowned eighteenth-century English watchmaker, John Arnold; Rebellion, a young brand, has made its name with standout mechanisms and designs; Rudis Sylva with its original complication was created in 2006; Purnell, also established in 2006, gives pride of place to the tourbillon in all its forms.

More than ever, Watches & Wonders Geneva 2020 is set to be the must-attend event for Fine Watchmaking at Palexpo and, for the very first time, beyond thanks to “In the City” events. Each of the exhibiting Maisons will be waiting to meet the public and take them behind the scenes with fascinating insights into their extraordinary expertise.
