Watches and Wonders Geneva, the largest watchmaking show ever organized online, brings together 38 brands from Wednesday until April 13, which present a plethora of new products through interposed screens. After two days and around forty official video meetings, to which are added dozens of parallel meetings, the format proposed by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) delivers its first lessons.
Large groups in the spotlight
Anyone who has delved into the Watches and Wonders agenda will have noticed that the first day was only devoted to brands from large groups. Out of fourteen presentations, seven concerned Richemont (which owns shares in the FHH), three LVMH and two the sister brands Rolex-Tudor. Chanel and Hermès completed a poster less dense than those of the following days, undoubtedly to allow the media to better digest the avalanche of information transmitted.
