JANUARY 29, 2016

Known for its plush setting, exclusive invite list, and top-of-the-line timepieces, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) is the high-end watch industry’s annual coming-out party. Held in Geneva from January 18 through 22, this year’s show played host to 24 prestige watchmakers—from power brands Cartier and IWC to independents MB&F and Kari Voutilainen—who took the occasion to woo an adoring community of retailers, collectors, and watch writers. Highlighted were tourbillons, skeletons galore, and a surprising number of entry-priced timepieces, not to mention plenty of avant-garde craziness. Here are RobbReport.com’s 10 favorite novelties from SIHH 2016. (sihh.org)
