After ten intense days that put watchmaking worldwide in the spotlight, Watches and Wonders 2021 brings down the curtain on a truly successful edition. New releases, major announcements, exceptional creations, panels, discussions and a hugely popular Morning Show kept interest at a high throughout what was the most important watch Salon ever held online and offline.

Geneva auctions: the relentless rise in the power of Rolex
