While the watch industry ticks in time to two massive watch fairs, Baselworld and SIHH, these two events are mostly meant for brands to present their novelties to a public of professionals – retailers and journalists. However, some local events around the globe allow watch collectors and enthusiasts to discover the collections – think SIAR, Dubai WW, Salon QP. Happening this weekend (October 19-20) is the largest watch exhibition in central and eastern Europe. It is named Salon Exceptional Watches 2019, it gathers 44 brands and it takes place in the beautiful city of Prague, Czech Republic.
Salon Exceptional Watches 2019, previously taking place in Brno, now in Prague, will be the 6th edition of this event, held in the beautiful premises of the Žofín Palace, a historic venue in the centre of Prague, close to the National theatre. This event is now central and eastern Europe’s largest watch exhibition, with no fewer than 44 brands – including major high-end manufacturers such as Breguet, Carl F. Bucherer or Jaeger-LeCoultre, large luxury brands such as Bell & Ross, Grand Seiko, Omega or TAG Heuer and even a fine selection of independent watchmakers, such as Armin Strom, Czapek, Moser and multiple local brands.
Such an exhibition is a great opportunity for watch enthusiasts to discover new brands or rare collections, as well as to try watches on the wrist. This is also the opportunity to chat with multiple CEOs, watchmakers, shop owners, watch collectors and all kind of watch lovers.
