Not only the organisers of the Baselworld are currently attracting attention with their concept for their new watch fair HourUniverse. There is also good news coming from Watches & Wonders. From September 9 to 13, 2020, the West Bund Art Center in Shanghai (China) will provide a place for friends of the high art of horology to discover the culture and expertise of craftsmanship. But that's not all: Besides a brief introduction to watchmaking, the program of the Watches & Wonders exhibition in Shanghai also includes panel discussions, insights into state-of-the-art technologies, presentations, brand keynotes and new product launches.
Which brands will be exhibiting at the Shanghai show?
In two different halls of the West Bund Art Center, watch manufacturers such as A. Lange & Söhne, Cartier, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, Piaget, and Vacheron Constantin will present their latest creations at pop-up booths.
However, there is a catch: Watches & Wonders Shanghai is an invitation-only event and therefore not open to the general public. Moreover, the event is subject to strict security measures due to the current Corona situation. But don't worry, even if you didn't receive an invitation to the fair, you can still follow the entire event on the Watches & Wonders website, which was launched for the digital watch fair in April, and via social media.
