The annual Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) show in Geneva just wrapped, a four-day event that attracted over 23,000 visitors from around the world.
The show has become an international calendar staple for fine watchmaking enthusiasts. Some of the world’s leading luxury brands take part, rolling out the latest trends (many exceptional timepieces were on display, perpetual calendars in particular).
We boiled the new releases down to a Top 3:
A. LANGE & SÖHNE: A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk models are among the most distinctive timepieces in the industry. The Zeitwerk Date is the latest release and debuted at SIHH 2019. It is nothing short of amazing. The white gold case measures at 44.2 mm. The watch is powered by a movement representing the very best in innovation and craftsmanship. Head here for more details.
AUDEMARS PIGUET: Audemars Piguet’s new Royal Oak ref 15500 at first glance is a small shift from the previous model, but the subtle changes and new calibre automatic movement makes it an exciting splash for 2019. It’s hard to improve on perfection … but they did. The case measures at 41 mm and is still iconic in stainless steel. Head here for more details.
LAURENT FERRIER: The Laurent Ferrier Bridge One is a beautiful new watch with a unique shape that was inspired by a visual a young Laurent could see from his bedroom window – the Passerelle de l’lle bridge in Geneva. The case measures 30 mm x 44 mm in stainless steel. The watch is powered by a immaculately finished manual wind movement. Head here for more details.
