Here it is… the most exciting time of the year for watch enthusiasts, retailers, and journalists is upon us once again. The most important event of the watch industry calendar, Watches and Wonders 2024 is set to kick off on April 9th, 2024 at 08:30 AM Europe Time. The event gains even more importance this year, and with it, all the parallel presentations, which promise us a week full of fervour. To help you plan your stay in Geneva, here’s a glimpse of what awaits next week at the heart of the watchmaking world.

MONOCHROME will, of course, be present in Geneva and will bring you live coverage of the event, as well as present the new watches introduced during the week.

So, stay tuned, as there’s some really exciting stuff coming your way. And if you are in Geneva during the week, here’s a guide to some of the main events you should be attending.
