SIHH 2009 opens in two weeks.

The 19th Salon International de la Haute Horogerie opens in Geneva from Monday January 19th to Friday January 23rd, but don't pack your bags just yet, the SIHH is reserved for guests of the exhibiting brands and professionals- by invitation only. The rest of us will have to be patient eagerly anticipating the new Timepieces crafted by exceptional Watch Brands.
Look out for new models from:
A.Lange and Sohne, Alfred Dunhill. Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, Girard-Perregaux, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, JeanRichard, Montblanc, Officine Panerei, Parmigiani Fleurier, Piaget, Ralph Lauren Watch and Jewerly Co., Roger Dubois, Vacheron Constantin and Van Cleef & Arpels.
Cartier is unveiling the Cartier Baignoire Grand Modele Watch a poetic addition to its Baignoire line first introduced in 1913. This Watch is in sync with its counterparts in Cartier Baignoire Collection with its oval face and pleasantly distorted numbers. This newer model has a larger sized case with a ultra-thin manually wound Piaget 430C movement. The Case is crafted from the increasingly popular rose gold with a silver dial. This luxurious timepiece is accentuated with Cartier's trademark in style: the blued hands, Roman numeral hands and a sapphire jewel cabochon set in the crown.

Amongst the Masters, a brand caught my eye - the Ralph Lauren Watch and Jewerly Co., a new joint venture between the Richemont Group (owns several of the world's leading companies in the field of luxury such as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Piaget, Vacheron Constantin, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC, Panerai and Montblanc) and Polo Ralph Lauren who will join the brands showing at the SIHH and introduce its very first collection of Haute Horlogerie timepieces.

Another first at this years SIHH will be a cultural area displaying the achievements of the Fondation del la Haute Horlogerie. The FHH was established in 2005 in Geneva because of the rapid increase in watch making brands as well as the products that are created. Countless brands are releasing fine watch creations. FHH has taken on the role of providing information and guidance from the watch making specialists to the press as there has been an increasing interest from the media and the public.
The FHH is a modern Foundation which for the most part utilizes the Internet for the release of information.
In addition the FHH recognizes Luxury Watches have evolved from a "social aspiration" into a "cultural aspiration"
The FHH focuses its primary attention on information and training in Horology.

For the first time the SIHH will be held a full two months prior to BaselWorld 2009. Usually BaselWorld and SIHH overlapped making it easier for participants and the guests. BaselWorld 2009 will be held from March 26 to April 2, 2009 in Basel, Switzerland.

Ring in 2009 with a Kenneth Cole Reaction for $20.09



As the world turns one year older we note the passage of time by counting down the seconds. In the large scheme of things it all comes down to the seconds, and the counting of seconds is done with precision. The precision that comes from a timepiece. The slow pound of each second is no more pronounced than the moments before the NEW YEAR begins.

Kenneth Cole Dress Men's Watch Stainless Steel Blue Dial KC3763

We, at THE WATCHERY, have decided to celebrate the NEW YEAR 2009 by selling a Kenneth Cole Reaction Watch for just $20.09. Known for its precision, Kenneth Cole Reaction Watch is not just about its stylish brand name, but also about its precision, durability and premium function.
The company Kenneth Cole Production, Inc was built upon a dream and a lot of New York City determination. Kenneth Cole wanted to sell shoes in New York and he wanted to get to the top fast. The 1982 shoe show was starting, and to get a place at the Hilton and be one of the 1100 struggling shoe salesman just would not do. The other alternative ,to rent fancy showroom not far from the Hilton, was way above his budget.

Armed with a production of high-quality shoe wear ,designed and manufactured in Europe, Kenneth Cole had a brilliant idea. He called up a friend he had in the trucking business and asked if he could borrow one of his rigs to park in Midtown Manhattan. His friend said sure but good luck getting a permit from the mayors office. Not deterred in the least, Kenneth Cole called Mayor Ed Koch's office who informed him that he most definitely could not obtain a permit unless he was a production trailer shooting a full length movie on the streets of Midtown Manhattan. Now the next step Kenneth Cole took was the turning point of his business. The exceptional creativity that made Kenneth Cole what it is today. At this point most people would sigh and say, "Oh Well, I tried!"
Kenneth Cole went in to a stationary store and printed a letterhead that said, Kenneth Cole Production, Inc. instead of Kenneth Cole, Inc and applied to the Mayor's office for a permit to film a full length movie called, "The birth of a Shoe Company,"
It worked. Kenneth Cole got his permit, and parked the 40 foot fully furnished trailer across from the Hilton. People came in droves to check out the filming in progress, and bought shoes-plenty shoes. Kenneth Cole sold 40 thousand shoes in two and a half days and never looked back. From shoes to clothing to watches and many other accessories, Kenneth Cole has become a household name synonymous with style and quality.
