A packed programme, a shorter schedule, and more connected than ever. Geneva, Thursday June 7, 2018 – Save the date: the next Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) at Palexpo, Geneva, will take place January 14-17, 2019. Setting the tone for the twelve months to come, it adopts a four-day schedule instead of the usual five with the convenience of longer opening hours, every day from 8.30am to 8pm.
Opened in January 2016 in Alserkal Avenue, Dubai's art district, the gallery has been a fabulous asset in promoting MB&F within the United Arab Emirates. Sixteen months on, following discussions with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the decision was taken to up the stakes and move to new premises inside the giant Dubai Mall.
The movement-maker is an exhibitor at EPHJ in Geneva. One of the products on show will be the Seed VMF 5440 calibre – an extra-thin (3.40 mm) automatic flying tourbillon movement with micro-rotor.

As though these two fine initiatives were opposites that could never attract... when for the past 28 years they have coexisted on perfectly good terms, each having "just about" found its market and its audience. And it's this "just about" that should be occupying our thoughts.
The Parisian firm supplied the film with jewellery, including a necklace inspired by the one Jacques Cartier imagined in 1931 for the Maharajah of Nawanagar. Scenes for the film were shot on location at the Cartier Mansion on 52nd Street, NYC.
