SIHH 2019 - The 5 Dominant Trends of the Year

The Wempe Product Management and Social Media team visited the 29th Geneva Watch Exhibition and tells us which trends will mark this watch year.

 "For every watch aficionado, a trip to the Geneva watch exhibition is like a visit to the candy shop when you were a child—simply overwhelming. Shapes, colors, and tempting delights galore await you. And anticipation is equally great: there were many speculations beforehand about the 25th anniversary of A. Lange & Söhne and rumors were buzzing around about new aviator watches from IWC and Cartier’s ladies’ collection."
