While SIHH 2015 was going on two weeks ago, the unofficial Geneva Watch Week 2015 also took place in the world’s watchmaking capital, where a number of brands of all sizes took the occasion of journalists and retailers being in Geneva for the week to present some of their latest creations.

And although I didn’t get to visit as many of the independent brands and watchmakers as I would have liked, the week was a horological overdose nonetheless.

So in alphabetical order, here are the 10 watches that really stood out for me.


Bovet Amadeo Fleurier BraveHeart: With 6 patents and a power reserve of 22 days (or 528 hours) from just two barrels, there’s a lot more than meets the eye with this reversible Bovet Amadeo.
