Geneva Watch Days 2023

Geneva Watch Days 2023 on a record edition: 39 participating brands and nearly 1,500 industry professionals, including 600 media representatives and 300 retailers, came from all over the world to gather on the shores of Lake Geneva. This year event brought together the following brands: Alpina, Angelus, Armin Strom, Arnold & Son, Artime, Bausele, Bianchet, Breitling, Bulgari, Byrne, Konstantin Chaykin, Claude Meylan, Corum, Czapek & Cie, De Bethune, Doxa, Frédérique Constant Group, Girard Perregaux, Greubel Forsey, Hautlence, HYT, Jacob and Co, Krayon, Laurent Ferrier, Louis Erard, Massena Lab, Maurice Lacroix, MB&F, H.

The pavilion at the Rotonde du Mont Blanc was open to the public for four days and welcomed 8’000 people from the public, who were able to admire the latest offerings from the brands in 51 display cases grouped around three themes. 450 of them enjoyed guided tours led by three experts.

The six symposiums on issues dear to the heart of the watchmaking industry were also a great success, each one drawing in fifty or so listeners to the auditorium.

Students, collectors and business executives had the opportunity to talk directly with the CEOs of the participating brands at three informal breakfasts.

“Naturally, the success of this edition is down to our participating brands, and also to our partners. I would like to thank the Republic and Canton of Geneva, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Geneva Tourism, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, Horopedia, the Ecole d’Horlogerie de Genève, the Watch Library, Worldtempus, GMT magazine and Revolution magazine for their valuable support,” said Antoine Pin, President of the Geneva Watch Days Association and Director of Bulgari Watches.

Boosted by this success, the salon is all set for its fifth edition in 2024 and is becoming an essential get- together in the industry’s calendar.
