In the waning days of 2016, there was much speculation about what to expect at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) watch show in Geneva.

And after seeing the flood of new releases unveiled at the show over the past few days, it would appear our hunches were right, and if this is any indication of what is to come, 2017 is going to be a spectacular year.
