Here we are, 2016 has just started and the new horological year too, meaning that the SIHH 2016 is about to open its doors and to reveal the novelties of Richemont Group brands. This year for the very first time the SIHH also gives the floor to several independent watchmakers. Known as the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, the SIHH will be this year more interesting than ever before. In order to keep you updated with everything that will be presented by the exhibiting brands, we are on the road to SIHH 2016 and will report live from the fair as of Monday morning.
Like every year, the watch exhibition season starts in January with the SIHH, which focuses mainly on high-end brands owned by the Richemont Group – plus several independent brands, friend of the group (Audemars Piguet, Richard Mille, Greubel Forsey or Parmigiani). However, this year, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie undergoes several changes. We find back the 15 major brands that are part of the show for several years now, however without Ralph Lauren watches.
The main novelty of the year remains of course the arrival of 9 new exhibitors, all small and highly desirable independent watchmakers, all reunited in the “Carré des Horlogers”. Thus, the SIHH 2016 will also include the novelties of Claret, De Bethune, H Moser & Cie, Hautlence, HYT, Kari Voutilainen, Laurent Ferrier, MB&F and URWERK.
