Four Brands Added to SIHH
The Vendome Group's Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) will feature four new brands at its invitation-only fine watch exhibition April 22-29 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Bovet, Roger Dubuis, Daniel JeanRichard and Perrelet will join three previously announced newcomers Breguet, Audemars Piguet and Girard-Perregaux.
The new firms come one year after debuts in 1998 by Gerald Genta, Daniel Roth, Officine Panerai and Parmigiani Fleurier. These brands will return to the show that now boasts 17 brands, including Cartier, Baume & Mercier, Vacheron Constantin, Piaget, Alfred Dunhill and Montblanc.
The week of the show, which precedes the Basel World Watch, Clock & Jewellery Show, will also include an exhibition devoted to the history of fine watchmaking.
