Forty brands will come together for the long-awaited first release of Watches and Wonders Geneva in 2022 after what will be a three-year hiatus in physical salons.
The event, taking over from the SIHH, renamed after the 2019 show, takes place from March 30 to April 5 at Palexpo.
The LVMH Hublot, TAG Heuer and Zenith brands join the exhibition and Grand Seiko received a seat.
It should be remembered that this will also be the first time that Chanel, Chopard, Patek Philippe, Rolex and Tudor will appear after torpedoing Baselworld with their departure.
The Richemont Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger LeCoultre, Piaget and Vacheron Constantin brands are participating, as are Oris, Hermès and Ulysse Nardin of the Kering group.
The Carré des Horlogers is expected to be buzzing this year as commerce, the press and consumers embrace the rise of independent watchmakers over the past two years.
Breitling is an interesting absentee, suggesting that the company will either bring its global roadshow back to heights next year or stick to digital presentations.
It is not known if the brands of the Swatch Group will organize their own event.
