\ The Event

SIHH is where the watch industry meets and where the year’s new trends are revealed.
It facilitates and optimises contacts between professionals in the fine watch sector, and showcases the most desirable timepieces in an exceptional setting.


Over its twenty-seven years, SIHH has made its mark as the reference among international fine watch shows by building on a unique concept that fulfils the expectations of exhibitors and visitors alike.

Each January, this magnificent setting becomes a place to meet, to exchange points of view and make new discoveries with, at its heart, the spotlighting of the latest creations in watchmaking. SIHH positions itself as the stage for emerging trends and a powerful voice for the sector.

Opening up a new dimension

SIHH expanded in size for its twenty-seventh edition, with the arrival of new brands. Joining the thirty exhibitors in 2017 are Girard-Perregaux and Ulysse Nardin; the show also welcomed five newcomers to the Carré des Horlogers.

Furthermore, this exclusively trade-only event was, for the first time ever, opening its doors to the public on the Friday, its last day. From January 16th to January 20th 2017, over fifteen thousand visitors converged on Geneva which for one extraordinary week became the world capital of watchmaking.
