From January 17-22, concurrent with SIHH, 29 independent watch brands and craftsmen will display their latest collections at the first Geneva Time Exhibition (GTE). The GTE is an effort by smaller, independent watch brands to pool their resources to battle the global economic crisis and to present their products together in an atmosphere designed for firms that are not members of the major groups.
The first edition of GTE runs from Sunday, January 17 (opening 2 p.m.) through Friday, January 22. GTE will be held in the heart of Geneva at the International Geneva Conference Center (CICG), close to Place des Nations. The 29 exhibitors’ stands will cover approximately 8000 square feet.
The 29 independent brands taking part in GTE are listed below.* Some watchmakers have selected GTE to officially launch their brand on the market and present their first timepieces to a specialist audience.
