The coronavirus pandemic is not only about the hazardous situation in the world but also about the substantial burden for the entire business sphere. The industry of luxury watches is no exception, with many important shows having been canceled or postponed for the time being. The good news is that there are still several events that are likely to be held as scheduled. One of them is Watches & Wonders Shanghai, a top destination for every luxury watch lover.
W&W Shanghai: An Invitation-Only Event for Luxury Watch Lovers
Believe it or not, W&W Shanghai is anticipated to be held as a live event. However, due to the unsavory global situation, you can only visit it if you are invited. Moreover, the organizers have promised to impose strict safety measures. The show will take place at the West Bund Art Center in Shanghai and will be on view on September 9-13, 2020.
W&W arrives in Shanghai for the first time. The event is expected to be an important addition to the rich market of watch fairs in Shanghai and China overall. This time, W&W will present only 11 luxury watch brands, which is markedly less than usual 30 in Geneva. The list of brands includes Cartier, Piaget, A. Lange & Söhne, IWC Schaffhausen, Baume & Mercier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, Parmigiani Fleurier, Roger Dubuis, Purnell, and Vacheron Constantin.
Apart from the live event, W&W Shanghai will be available online so that every luxury watch fan could enjoy the entire showcase of designer watches from the comfort of their homes. The show will also include product launches, panel discussions, and the introduction of the latest technologies. Such a comprehensive program is very promising. So let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that the show will run with flying colors as scheduled.
