Geneva Watch Days emerged in 2020 as a modern and collaborative platform for watchmakers, regardless of their size or legacy; the aim was to showcase craftsmanship alongside each other. This unique event was founded by eight renowned watch brands, including Breitling, Bvlgari, De Bethune, Girard-Perregaux, H. Moser & Cie., MB&F, Ulysse Nardin and Urwerk. Its unconventional horological philosophy emphasises cooperation over complexity and encourages a self-managed, flexible, and agile approach to organising the event.
As a partnership between the Canton and the City of Geneva, Geneva Watch Days offers an exciting opportunity for media, retailers and the public to experience the latest developments in watchmaking and gain insider knowledge. The event is widely appreciated for being friendly, engaging and inclusive, ensuring a festive atmosphere.
The forthcoming Geneva Watch Days 2023 promises to be the most impressive edition yet. Beginning on Tuesday, August 29, the official inauguration ceremony will kick off the festivities in partnership with the Canton and the City of Geneva. From Wednesday, August 30, to Saturday, September 2, the Rotonde du Mont-Blanc pavilion on Lake Geneva and numerous boutiques and venues throughout the city will feature about 40 watch brands, displaying their latest novelties, arranged by theme.
Guided tours will be available every afternoon, starting from the pavilion and covering various boutiques and showrooms, where guests can gain deeper insight into the world of fine watches. On Saturday, September 2, the salon opens its doors to the public for educational activities and celebrations.
With official registration opening on Monday, June 5, Geneva Watch Days 2023 promises to be an unforgettable experience that celebrates the collaboration, creativity and innovation in the watchmaking industry.
