29 August–2 September 2023

Almost 40 watch brands will officially present their latest releases by the banks of Lake Geneva as part of the Geneva Watch Days, which are being held for the fourth time. Here is the program for the week with free admission to the general public

First off, come and marvel at the window displays of the participating companies, grouped by theme at the Geneva Days pavilion set up at the Rotonde du Mont Blanc. Guided tours with an expert will be available from August 30 until September 1 at 1:00pm, 2:30pm and 4:00pm. These continue with the photo exhibition “What Time Is It?” initiated by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie at the Pont de la Machine. Simply register online at Geneva Watch Days (gva-watch-days.com). Saturday, September 2 is open house at the pavilion.

Geneva Watch Days also rely on their media partners to add to their voice. Revolution magazine is holding a series of symposiums at the pavilion presented by Wei Koh, founder of the magazine and Grail Watch. These will be broadcast on its platforms (scheduling below). Worldtempus and GMT magazine, members of the Salon since its launch, will release a highlights journal every day presented by Sophie Furley and her team, showing all the best bits of the week. Hantang Culture, the media group based in Shanghai, will make sure the event doesn’t go unmissed in China. Finally, the Horopedia Foundation, the encyclopedia of horology, and the Ecole de l’Horlogerie de Genève will make their educational contribution to the standing of the Salon.

Geneva Watch Day

The Geneva Watch Days are an industry salon founded in 2020 by eight prestigious watch brands:
Breitling, Bulgari, De Bethune, Girard-Perregaux, H. Moser & Cie, MB&F, Ulysse Nardin, and Urwerk.
The event is based on a modern and unconventional philosophy that emphasizes cooperation while
avoiding complexity. It is a self-managed organization that is light, flexible, and agile, providing a
common space to showcase the latest in watchmaking, while giving participating brands the
opportunity to host decentralized activities. Held in partnership with the Canton and the City of Geneva
as well as the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services (CCIG), the show caters to retailers
and media, while being completely open to the public.
