— The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie is celebrating its quartercentury and opens on Monday January 19th at Palexpo in Geneva.
From five exhibitors sharing 4,500 square metres in 1991 to 16 Maisons occupying a surface ten times larger inside Palexpo Geneva, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie has come a long way in 25 years. So far, in fact, that the four initials SIHH speak for themselves.
The SIHH introduced a new face whose spirit has remained resolutely unchanged: an event where professionals within the sector and representatives from distribution networks and the media could meet in a relaxed and welcoming environment. Now scheduled in January, the SIHH has grown into a foremost event which invariably sets the tone for the twelve months to come.
While the 16 exhibiting Maisons’ command of technique has long been established, it is now joined by their expertise in the métiers d’art. This dual approach to the measuring of time makes theirs a unique activity in the world of luxury.
This year’s SIHH conveys the full extent of Fine Rolex Replica Watchmaking’s distinctive culture with a new approach. While previous editions explored the concept of historical and themed exhibitions, this 25th edition is instead highlighted by initiation to watchmaking workshops, where participants are given the opportunity to take apart then reassemble a Swiss replica watches movement. What more eloquent demonstration of the palette of skills that make up a world ruled by the infinitely small. Such an exercise is invariably rewarded by a sense of wonder. An emotion shared by every visitor to the SIHH!
