Two very different themes dominated this year's Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2016 watch show in Geneva: travel and the exotic. Long the home turf for Swiss manufacturers, SIHH is where major watch introductions happen, especially in the Grande Complication category where giants like Vacheron Constantin, Cartier, Piaget, Audemars Piguet, Girard-Perregaux, Jean Richard, and Panerai play. On one end of the spectrum we have the IWC Pilot's Watch Timezoner, refreshing the brand's ranks of refined workhorses. On the other, pieces like the MB&F's Sherman "Happy Robot" and HM6 SV take the notion of timekeeping into a new realm.  Fortunately, there was also plenty to enjoy everywhere in between. Take a look at eight of the best in the galleries below.
