Booking is open for watch fans keen to attend Watches and Wonders Geneva, the pinnacle event for innovative and dynamic watchmaking. The event will be open to the public from Saturday, April 13, to Monday, April 15, 2024.

It’s a record-breaking year with 54 participating maisons. Expect to be dazzled by the latest timekeeping marvels from renowned brands like Patek Philippe, Rolex, Cartier, A. Lange & Söhne, and many more. Marvel at exquisite timepieces, discuss new trends and connect with the industry’s leading figures. You can sign up for exclusive, small-group product presentations to learn about the intricacies behind manufacturing these timepieces and see the results of the watchmakers’ talents up close. On-site registration is required.

You can also join expert-led guided tours to discover more about the fascinating world of watchmaking and listen to many anecdotes, technical explanations and stories.

Step into the future at the reimagined LAB, where schools, startups, and exhibiting maisons showcase their visions for tomorrow’s watchmaking. Witness innovative projects from ECAL, a leading Swiss university for art and design, and explore the latest advancements in microtechnology, materials, and design.

The new Auditorium will host a programme of 10 fascinating watchmaking lectures, delving into topical themes that intersect economics, society, and technology.

For a more intimate setting, the new Agora meeting space provides a platform for smaller conferences, discussions, and exchanges. Additionally, don’t miss the captivating “Timekeepers” photo exhibition by Luc Debraine, showcasing a collection of watches and clocks frozen in time, each preserving a precious memory. Through a striking interplay of photographs and text, Debraine unveils clocks frozen in time by natural disasters, acts of man, or even deliberate human intervention. Some stand idle after marking a revolution, a liberation, or a singular event. These timepieces, often out of commission, speak volumes through their silence. Whether housed in public spaces, museums, or private homes, they serve as powerful reminders, a resolute refusal to let the past fade.

“Timekeepers” invites us to contemplate the profound interplay between time, history, and memory. It’s an exhibition that will resonate with anyone who has ever paused to reflect on the passage of time and the moments etched into our collective and personal narratives.

Beyond the confines of Palexpo, the excitement spills onto the streets of Geneva with the free “In the City” programme. Explore the Watchmaking Village on the Pont de la Machine and immerse yourself in cultural and educational activities. Don’t miss the electrifying evening celebration on April 11, featuring DJs, live music, and street performances throughout the city.
