celebrates its eighteenth edition from April 7th to 12th 2008
The Watch Quote™ - April 7th, 2008
The trends that will shape tomorrow's Fine Watches are played out at the SIHH, where sixteen of the most prestigious names in watchmaking unveil their latest creations:
A. Lange & Söhne, Alfred Dunhill, Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, Girard-Perregaux, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, JeanRichard, Montblanc, Officine Panerai, Parmigiani Fleurier, Piaget, Roger Dubuis, Vacheron Constantin and Van Cleef & Arpels.
This "Cité de la Haute Horlogerie" will again take over Hall 6 of Palexpo, where the exhibiting brands will enjoy the best conditions in which to present their products over 24,000 square metres of exhibition space.
A major international event for the profession, the 18th SIHH is set to welcome close to 13,000 visitors in an exclusive setting.
The SIHH is also hosting its fourteenth exhibition, Fine Watchmaking Celebrates Sport. The watches on show are taken from the brands' own heritage or loaned by the leading Swiss watch museums. This exhibition, whose visitors will be given a bilingual catalogue, highlights the common desire of athletes and watchmakers to excel in what they do.
Full information on the exhibitors, their products and new models will be available to accredited journalists at the fair. Complementary information in French and English is provided by the new dedicated website www.sihh.ch, with features such as the history of the SIHH, photos, the latest from the brands and press releases.
This year, the exceptional presence of the legendary Harcourt photography studio will be an opportunity for visitors to acquire a classic black and white portrait photograph.
The SIHH is organised by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, as part of its Events wing, on behalf of the newly- created SIHH Exhibitor Committee.
