The 23rd edition of the SIHH follows a record year for the Swiss Watchmaking industry that should exceed for the first time the 20 billion Swiss francs in export.

We finally found some (nearly) affordable watches at this SIHH 2013! We had to wait 3 days just to think “hey, I could (almost) afford these ones if I want!”. Big Up to Baume & Mercier! Joking aside, the collection of the Swiss watchmaker Baume & Mercier honors the history of the brand with gusto.

Many beautiful novelties with Jaeger LeCoultre during this SIHH 2013! To celebrate its 180 years of existence, Jaeger presents some pieces that will satisfy fine-watchmaking fans and collectors of the brand. Here’s a quick overview of the ones we preferred today.
