Glitter to Geneva, and Sophistication to SIHH

Inside Basel-GenevaBaselworld, The Geneva Time Exhibition, and The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie are three of the watch, jewelry, and luxury goods industry’s most prestigious and widely attended events. Every year, tens of thousands of watch industry professionals make an annual pilgrimage to these exclusive shows to see the newest timepieces and innovations from the world’s leading brands.

This year, Watchtime editor and noted collector Jeff Kingston has decided to up the ante by showcasing the very best from these prestigious shows in an atmosphere of astonishing opulence and luxury.

Lucky participants begin each evening with a 120-minute watch exhibition, showcasing the very best new timepieces for 2013. Premium champagnes selected by expert sommeliers are paired with signature hors d’oeuvres, and accompanied by live music. The watch world’s elite will see and try on the newest and most exciting timepieces long before they reach the stores. Each featured brand will have top executives on hand to answer questions from buyers and enthusiasts.

This unique opportunity to enjoy fine watches, accompanied by the finest food and wine in the company of industry insiders and fellow enthusiasts just isn’t available anywhere else. For many attendees, this unique event is the highlight of the horological year. In one luxurious evening, Jeff Kingston presents the most exciting new stars from SIHH, Baselworld, and the Geneva Time Exhibition during a 3-course seasonal gourmet dinner that has been created exclusively for each IBG event. Sommeliers will pair top-tier wines with your meal for a truly unique dining experience.
