5 Major Trends at SIHH 2017: Will Baselworld Follow Suit?
In January, the 27th edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva welcomed not only a couple of new brands (Girard-Perregaux and Ulysse Nardin, plus five newcomers that were added to the Carré des Horlogers), but also the public.
