Starting this upcoming Monday, January 16th, and running through Friday, January 20th, is the always anticipated, annual Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) watch exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland. The exhibition will feature displays from some of the largest watch brands as well as a stable of independent brands who are newly invited for 2017. This year also features a first for SIHH – a day open to the public on the final day, January 20th. The aBlogtoWatch team will be ready and present with the most comprehensive reporting of the event, and we will be bringing you our hands-on coverage of the latest novelties to debut at SIHH 2017. And if that didn’t already excite you, get ready to take an even closer behind the scenes look when we host our own aBlogtoWatch day on Thursday, January 19th at the show.

Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, Girard-Perregaux, Greubel Forsey, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Montblanc, Panerai, Parmigiani, Piaget, Richard Mille, Roger Dubuis, Ulysse Nardin, Vacheron Constantin, and Van Cleef & Arpels.

Otherwise, the design and configuration have not changed. At 9 o’clock, you still have the running moments in white.Inside, the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary Iwc Watch Kaskus Replica Pilots Chronograph is powered by the exact same IWC 79320 Caliber located at the ref. 3777. It is a strong, reliable self-winding chronograph movement that is based on the common Valjoux 7750. It beats at 4Hz and provides around 44 hours of electricity reserve.To commemorate this special watch, the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph includes a commemorative instance back which reveals the watch’s number from the limited edition series. The situation back also gets the Watches of Switzerland logo and a distinctive design that celebrates its 20th anniversary.This is a view I feel a great deal of IWC lovers, particularly those that are also fans of the present vintage-inspired watch trend, will love. They haven’t messed about with all the classic good looks of this ref. 3777 and whatever small changes there are have been implemented. The Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph is priced at AU $7,950.
