The 27th International Salon of High Watches (SIHH) was officially opened on January 16, Switzerland time. Geneva Salon Internatinal de la Haute Horologerie, referred to as ‘SIHH’. In addition to the traditional Lifeng Group’s watch and jewelry brands Cartier, Earl, Vacheron Constantin, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC and so on. In 2017, SIHH will also join Kering’s Girard Perregaux and Athens, as well as five independent watch brands. Unlike previous sessions, this year SIHH left the last day to the public in addition to the traditional invitation letter system, saying goodbye to past ‘closed-door’ exhibitions.
Because the media preview on the first day was half a day, there were relatively few brands to preview, only two brands, Parmigiani and Koperfuss.
Parmigiani’s ‘Tooth Ring’ new Toric series watches, Parmigiani has released a number of Tonda watches this year, but I don’t think there is a traditional flavor in this Toric series. The hand-made ‘rings’ used by him were used by Parmigiani when he debuted. This year, the brand’s most traditional things are taken out and reinterpreted. The junior pin is displayed with the date, which is neat and clean. Although it is just a simple watch, it is more attractive. The case diameter is 40.8mm and the thickness is 9.5mm. It is equipped with a PF 331 self-winding movement and provides a 55-hour power reserve. Red and white gold, with white and black dial, a total of 4 models. Both are priced at 148,000 RMB.
After 11 years of research and development, Coperfuss has released the new Grande Sonnerie big self-sounding watch. At three o’clock, the small dial can choose between big self-talk, small self-talk, and silent mode. In addition, it is equipped with a minute repeater and its brand’s most representative 24-second tourbillon. The movement consists of a total of 935 parts. This watch is expected to be limited to 5 to 8 pieces per year, priced at 8,450,000 RMB.
Although there are not many brands on the first day, there will be more wonderful watches tomorrow, so stay tuned.
