The four day event will feature brands such as A. Lange & Söhne, Armin Strom, Arnold & Son, Champs Élysées, CVSTOS, DeWitt, Erwin Sattler, Kerbedanz, Louis Moinet, Montegrappa, Parmigiani Fleurier, Perrelet, Rebellion, Roger Dubuis, Vacheron Constantin, Vianney Halter, Visconti, Voutilainen and William Wagner Geneva.

This event will allow collectors, aficionados as well as those from the industry to experience a collection of timepieces and writing instruments. The latter is a new addition to the Salon as previous years have focused exclusively on watches. The 12th annual Watch of the Year awards gala will also take place on November 10, the final day of the exhibition.

The organisers say that master craftsmen from several of the participating brands will be present, and will be able to give visitors insights into the creation of the luxury products on offer.
