And Then There Were...


Today the SIHH announced the addition of 8 new participants for the 2016 edition -

H. Moser & Cie, Hautlence, Christophe Claret, HYT, Laurent Ferrier, Kari Voutilainen, MB&F and Urwerk are all slated to join the roster and will be making up some of the space previously used by Ralph Lauren who are sitting this one out while they restructure.

It is indeed going to be interesting to see how this all plays out.  Not so long ago the feeling was that the SIHH event was all but dead, catering only to Richemont.  But now with new brands coming in, it will be interesting to see how it develops.  It further begs the question as to whether brands like H. Moser & Cie., Hautlence and the others will "double-down" and participate in BaselWorld as well.

So let's see what January has in store!
