Industry News – The Moscow Clock & Watch Salon 2003

In commemoration of Russia’s 600th anniversary of its first clock tower, the fifth annual Moscow Clock & Watch Salon will take place on November 3-7, 2003. It will take place at the Expocenter, Pavilion 2, Hall 3 (Krasnopresnenskaya nab., 12) in Moscow.

This specialized international salon of watches, clocks, accessories and equipment, has become the largest forum for the CIS countries, the Baltic and Central and Eastern Europe. This relatively new exhibition revives ancient traditions of Russia and occupies a well-deserved place in the recognized ‘showrooms’ of the world – Basel, Geneve, Munich and Hong Kong.

From the moment of its founding, the Moscow Clock & Watch Salon favored the development of the clock market in the CIS territory and, to some extent, determines its direction.

On average, up to 7.5 million imported watches and clocks are now sold in Russia annually. At last year’s show, Swiss companies such as Longines, Maurice Lacroix, Raymond Weil and Nina Ricci were exhibitors.
