High watchmaking met high jewellery at this year's prestigious annual Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva. The originality and innovation shown in the new products on show at SIHH suggests that this will go down as a vintage year for watches. One prominent feature at SIHH was the large number of limited- edition watches on offer, as well as many complicated watches for men and women. There were even a few unique watches, masterpieces of which only one example will be made. Other trends apparent in Geneva were largely in line with those seen at the BaselWorld watch and jewellery show in Basel the previous week. There were many diamond-set timepieces for men and women this year and pink was the dominant colour for ladies' watches. There was a fair sprinkling of watches on rubber straps and a large date display is one of this year's most popular features, along with watches that display time in a second time zone. Many women's watches, including diamond models, featured mechanical movements in response to growing demand. The 2005 edition of SIHH confirms that women's watches are being taken more seriously now than they have been for many generations and there is still strong interest in complicated men's timepieces.
