This year’s Geneva Watch Days was held from August 29 to September 1 and saw a stunning showcase from around 40 revered luxury watch brands. The event saw a series of exhibitions unveiling horological advancements taking place across hotels and boutiques alike in the watchmaking capital of the world.
The concept first began in 2020, originally as a collaboration between seven luxury watch brands—Bulgari, Breitling, De Bethune, H Moser & Cie, MB&F, Ulysse Nardin and Urwerk—to combat the effects of Covid-19 on the watchmaking industry. Other brands have since joined the initiative.
Take a look below at Tatler’s picks of the most outstanding pieces on show at this year’s event.
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton Eight Days
Bulgari’s Octo Finissimo Skeleton Eight Days is an important addition to haute horlogerie. The timepiece isn’t one that simply puts aesthetics at the forefront: it is also equipped with an impressive eight-day power reserve. It has a sleek, 40mm octagonal case, is made of 18-karat rose gold, and also features a bark brown alligator leather strap. It is run by a BVL 199 SK calibre manual winding.
