The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie
in Geneva is more than just a simple watch exhibition. The annual event gathers 16 of the most prestigious watch maisons from around the world to present the latest in high-end timepieces. The invite-only exhibition showcases elegance, fine craftsmanship and, above all, luxury. Below, we bring you the top five timepieces from Switzerland.
1. The Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia
is the first watch from IWC to feature a patented constant-force tourbillon and features a customized celestial chart. IWC also hosted one of the most talked about parties featuring appearances by Ewan McGregor and Susan Sarandon and even a special performance by Cirque du Soleil.
2. The Excalibur Double Flying Tourbillon
from Roger Dubuis showcases pioneering tourbillon technology and compensates for the effects of gravity to improve the functioning of the timepiece.
4. The 1815 Tourbillon
by A. Lange & Söhne highlights their patented Zero Reset mechanism which allows it to be stopped, set and restarted with one-second accuracy.
5. RM 052-01 Tourbillon Skull Nano-Ceramic is the latest innovation from Richard Mille. Resembling something out of a comic book, the timepiece features a ceramic case and solid gold skull at the center with the tourbillon located inside its jaws.
