Watch exhibition celebrates 20th anniversary

First published: 19-01-2010

The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) is celebrating its 20th annual get-together this week, with the event running between January 18th and 22nd for all fans of high-end watches.

To add to the fun, it is also taking on two new exhibitors in the forms of Greubel Forsey and Richard Mille, who are "both in perfect concordance with the values of fine watch-making".

Following the vote by the SIHH Exhibitor Committee, the two new additions will join the 17 brands which exhibited at the last event, "continuing the spirit that defines the SIHH" and its commitment to top-quality timepieces.

The organisation revealed that, since 1991, the exhibition space has grown from 4,500 sq m in 1991 to over 30,000 sq m in 2010, and from just five exhibitors in the first year to 19 in 2010.

It prides itself in its attendees, stating that each one "strives to uphold the culture, innovation and professions that are the foundations for technical and precious fine watch-making".

Among the companies listed with SIHH are IWC, Mont Blanc, Piaget, Vacheron Constantin and Jaeger LeCoultre.
