Geneva Time Exhibition 2011

Starting a day earlier then the SIHH is the Geneva Time Exhibition catering to mostly smaller innovative watch companies.

60 watch brands will be displaying their newest designs including technological advancements, unique creations and exceptional craftsmanship. Watch lovers, private collectors, and watch dealers will head to the Geneva Time Exhibition.

In addition, there will be quite a competition in place, the GTE SUPERWATCH 2011 Award. The award will be bestowed on an independent watch which displays a extreme technical innovation and craftsmanship, a time telling application quite unique to the watch making world, and supreme creativity. I am sure a intriguing take on a complication may be a plus. Six independent judges will award a single watch, and the prize... a free spot at GTE 2012 plus media coverage in Plaza Watch Magazines. A number of my favorite brands are exhibitors:

Alain Silberstein, the creator of fun colorful watches with iconic bold colored hands , will be displaying his latest works of art.

Some of the other participating brands include, Artya, Clerc, Delance, HD3, RGM Watch Company, Catena, Drakkar, Catorex, Bulova, B.R.M and Quinting - the makers of the first and unique transparent watch in the world (its components crafted from finely cut sapphire crystal).

The exhibition will last only a couple of days, but the lingering effects on all participating watch brands will last much much longer.
