INDUSTRY OPINION: Leading watch brands return to Inhorgenta Munich

The forthcoming edition of Inhorgenta Munich, taking place in February, will feature several leading international watch brands. Klaus Dittrich, chairman and chief executive of Messe München explains more.

Inhorgenta Munich will proudly host the Citizen Group and Bruno Söhnle GmbH, who are both returning to Munich after taking a break from exhibiting.

The Japanese Citizen Group will be once again exhibiting after a ten-year absence. Alongside the parent brand Citizen, the group is renowned for brands Frédérique Constant, Alpina and Bulova, who will be showcasing their latest designs for the first time in Munich.

We are very happy and proud that we have been able to convince Citizen, one of the most important players in the sector, of our concept. Thus, Inhorgenta is forging ahead on the road to success as in the past years. We are expecting further growth this year as well.

Of his decision to show at the 2019 event, Keiichi Kobayashi, Managing Director of Citizen Watch Europe GmbH, explains: “Inhorgenta is the most important trade show for the German-speaking retail trade for watches and jewelry. Therefore, it is the ideal platform for us as a Group to present our current portfolio and our plans for the future.”

Inhorgenta Munich will provide the perfect platform for Citizen to present the Group’s multi-brand strategy in to the European retail industry.

The Group took over Bulova together with Caravelle New York and Wittnauer in 2008, and Frédérique Constant jointly with Alpina and Ateliers de Monaco in 2016.

“We are offering a broad portfolio from one source to our customers” adds Kobayashi. “Ranging from Japanese high-tech precision by Citizen to the Swiss-made brands Alpina and Fréderique Constant through to the innovative American Bulova brand. All brands and price segments are characterized by top quality, independent product strategies and a fair price-/performance ratio”.

German watch specialist, Bruno Söhnle GmbH, is also returning after taking a break of a year for reorientation. “Inhorgenta Munich is the perfect place to present our new concept to the retail trade”, emphasizes Stephanie Söhnle, the brand’s managing director.
