One of the Foundation's priorities is to stage events that focus attention on Fine Watchmaking worldwide and throughout the year.

As the organizer of watch fairs, curator of exhibitions and host of conferences and awards, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie has developed proven expertise in the organization of major events. Every event which the Foundation proposes is designed to welcome, inspire wonder, share knowledge and highlight the expertise behind every Fine Watch.



A 100% digital Salon built on unity and openness

In the light of uncertainty amid the current health crisis, the Watches and Wonders Geneva Exhibitor Committee has taken the decision not to hold the physical Salon, scheduled April 7 to 13, 2021. An all-digital edition will be proposed on the same dates at watchesandwonders.com with new services and features, where participating brands will be able to present their new watches for 2021 and interact directly with their audiences.

Watches & Wonders Miami

Taking place at the heart of the Miami Design District, Watches & Wonders Miami is a unique opportunity to discover watches and jewellery from the most prestigious brands, including new models that have only just been revealed at the SIHH watch fair in Geneva.


An incubator for ideas

Probing the issues on the watch industry radar, each year researchers, academics, economists, scientists, politicians or writers meet at the Forum to spark debate and bring ideas into the open. The objective of the Forum is to fuel reflection and shed an original light on the future of the Fine Watchmaking professions.


The Mastery of Time

A travelling exhibition

From the very first sundials to contemporary complication mechanisms, The Mastery of Time traces our relationship with time from a historical and scientific perspective, and provides a fascinating opportunity to learn how the history of watchmaking and the history of mankind are entwined.

Dubai Watch Week

Dubai on Swiss time

The FHH has put together an exciting programme for Dubai Watch Week with two exhibitions: "The Mastery of Time" and "24 Hours in the Life of a Swiss Cuckoo Clock". Visitors can reflect on the history of time measurement, then enjoy the sound of 18 remarkable contemporary cuckoo clocks as part of Dubai's watchmaking event of the year.
