Tomorrow, the famous Watch & Wonders 2021 watch fair opens its doors for 10 days during which new luxury watches from 38 major brands, including Rolex, TAG Heuer, Cartier and Patek Philipp will be presented. Focus on the most anticipated novelties of the show.

 

The 2021 edition will take place in two stages, in digital format in Geneva from 7 to 13 April, and with a physical exhibition in Shanghai from 14 to 18 April.

 

More than 40 online keynotes, 400 local digital presentations, 500 press conferences, six panels, one-on-one meetings and a daily “Morning Show” will be broadcast live or recorded on the watchesandwonders.com from 7am tomorrow.

 

This live content is by invitation only, although houses can post content for public consumption on the Watches And Wonders website.

 

Between media, retailers and end customers, a total of 23,000 visitors will attend the must-see event.

 

Although the show officially starts tomorrow morning, some brands have already unveiled their new products.

 

The L.U.C. Quattro Spirit 25

 

This year, Chopard’s renowned Quattro technology will debut its first jumping hour movement at the event.

 

The 100-piece L.U.C. Quattro Spirit 25 collector’s edition features an eight-day power reserve, an extraordinary capacity compared to the usual 42 hours of a typical single barrel movement. This is also impressive for a jumping hour, which requires a lot of energy from the mainspring.

 

Chopard’s four-barrel system normally provides 216 hours of power reserve. The jumping hour version, equipped with the L.U.C 98.06-L calibre, offers 190 hours.

 

The dial has a white grand feu enamel back painted with a black grand feu enamel railway-style minute track. The case is made of 18-carat ethical white gold and measures 36 mm by 9.84 mm. It comes with a blue alligator leather strap. The watch is worth $61,000.
