Now that the dust has settled and we had the time to digest the hundreds of watches we’ve seen and written about at Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024 and off the fair, we’ve decided to take some time and talk about it. Somehow a new format for us, we’ve invited our founder, Frank Geelen, and one of our editors, Robin Nooy, to speak their minds. Highlights, most discussed new releases, watches we’d like to buy for ourselves, trends of the year, winners and losers, but also pragmatic topics such as the continuous rise of prices or the comeback of smaller watches. Check our recap of Watches and Wonders in the video on top of this article.
