This week, the Palexpo facility in Geneva, Switzerland, will become the center of the watch world for the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, or SIHH, a luxury watch show rivaled only by BaselWorld in relevance and prestige. We’ve got a team on the ground, there to bring you the most exciting releases. Follow our coverage here, and also be sure to check out Instagram. We’ll be posting to our feed throughout the week.

SIHH 2019 started with a bang yesterday, with watch brands like A. Lange & Söhne, IWC, Audemars Piguet and a long list of others releasing innovative new timepieces — and stunning updates to existing models. There was a lot to like, but these models (from IWC’s Timezoner Spitfire Edition “Longest Flight” to Lange & Söhne’s Richard Lange Jumping Seconds) are the ones we’re still thinking about.
