SIHH 2009 Is Coming


By TLex: SIHH 2009 is coming. It will run from January 19th to the 23rd, much earlier than previous years. The watchmakers and manufacturers listed below will be showing. They have all released dive watches of note in the past, some of them amongst the most iconic that have ever been produced.

Here are the players in terms of dive watch makers:

Audemars Piguet (Royal Oak Offshore Scuba)

Baume & Mercier (Capeland S XXL)
Girard-Perregaux (Seahawk line)
IWC (Aquatimer line)
Jaeger-LeCoultre (Master Compressor Diving line)
JeanRichard (Diverscope line)
Officine Panerai (Luminor Submersible line)
Parmigiani Fleurier (Pershing line)
Roger Dubuis (Easy Diver line)

Last year saw the release of;

Girard-Perregaux Seahawk Pro 1000m with rubber bezel insert,
IWC's Reissue Vintage Aquatimer,
Parmigiani Fleurier's Pershing line,
Offcine Panerai's 1950 'Pangaea' Depth Guage,
Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Polaris,
Baume & Mercier Riviera XL Diver & Riviera XXL Chronograph Diver

This year I hope to see a better showing from Panerai as well as possibly a prototype of the JLC Master Compressor Diving collaboration with the US Navy SEALS. From Girard-Perregaux a Seahawk Chrono and from IWC an oversized Aquatimer (non chrono) would also be very welcome. Finally the
Baume & Mercier Capeland S XXL is dearly missed, a black dialed re-release would be exceptional, but is highly unlikely.

These companies will also be showing, but as of yet have not released dive watches.
