The official announcement of SIHH 2013 was just published. The 23rd Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie will happen from January 21 to 25, 2013, at the Geneva Palexpo. More than 12,000 visitors, of which 1200 will be journalists, are expected. I will be there to bring you the latest. Alongside the exhibiting brands will be the Mastery of Time exhibition, which was in Mexico City, now in London and in Paris at month’s end. And with the purchase of Sowind by PPR, Girard-Perregaux and JeanRichard are no longer part of the SIHH (which is definitely welcome news since all brands are short of space). The slimmed down list of exhibitors are: A. Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, Greubel Forsey, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Montblanc, Officine Panerai, Parmigiani Fleurier, Piaget, Ralph Lauren, Richard Mille, Roger Dubuis, Vacheron Constantin, Van Cleef & Arpels – SJXBack to top.
