Shanghai: our visit to a post-coronavirus watch show

Watches & Wonders, organised by the FHH, was held for the first time in Shanghai in September. Reserved for the Chinese market, it was an opportunity for exhibitors to present their new timepieces in a context marked by the cancellation of universal watch fairs. Domestic consumption is all the more important as international travel has been interrupted. We present a report on one of the first post-coronavirus watchmaking events... complete with compulsory temperature testing at the entrance.


020 has been a very unusual year, seeing the cancellation of the two major events in the watch industry, the Basel and Geneva fairs, due to the health crisis. In order to reduce the impact of the epidemic on the entire watch industry, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH), organiser of what should have been the first Geneva Watches & Wonders exhibition this year (successor to the SIHH), has redoubled efforts to offer alternative solutions.
