Jaeger-LeCoultre has the most extensive Instagram strategy of all brands during #SIHH2015, opening the first day with a video of its latest creation followed by 13 posts throughout the event. Examples: ‘The Rendez-Vous Moon opens up a new chapter in the catalogue of #watch #complications for ladies.’ And ‘From earth to moon, the Duomètre  #SphérotourbillonMoon #watch balances aesthetic harmony with precision.’

Torneau displays good sportsman ship by posting a photo of a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch: Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon.

RADO is absent from the event (at least on social media), evident by a watch selfie across from the World Expo Building in Shanghai today.
