Watches and Wonders 2024: That’s a Wrap.

Watches and Wonders Geneva came to a close on Monday April 15, 2024, “setting both new records and a positive tone for the industry overall.”

Watches and Wonders took place in Geneva from April 9 to 15, 2024.

Some facts about this year’s event (provided by the organization):

  • The event managed to attract over 49,000 unique visitors between April 9 and 15 (+14% vs. 2023), including 5,700 retailers and 1,500 journalists, who all came to see the new introductions from 54 brands.
  • Of the 19,000 tickets made available to the public (vs. 12,000 in 2023), once again 25% were sold to under-25s, with an average age of 35, identical to 2023.
  • The hashtag #watchesandwonders2024 had a reach of over 600 million people at closing time. The arrival of several celebrities certainly helped: Among them, the supermodel Gisele Bündchen, the tennis champion Coco Gauff, and soccer superstar Kylian Mbappé came to Geneva.
  • Over 10,000 retailer appointments (+25% vs. 2023) 1,800 Touch & Feel press sessions, and a significant increase in end-clients placing orders was recorded as well.

Needless to say, WatchTime’s editorial team has also made the trip to Geneva to cover the show in real-time (see here).
