As an aBlogtoWatch guest, Zach Weiss of Worn & Wound would like to share with you the details of a new New York City watch show called Wind-Up. Zach is a watch enthusiast and a co-founder at Worn & Wound who will be hosting the event. Here are details from Zach:
Dear aBlogtoWatch Readers,
Worn&wound would like to cordially invite you to attend Wind-Up: New York City, the world’s first affordable watch fair. Held October 23rd – 25th, 2015, at 101 Wooster St. in the SoHo district of NYC, Wind-Up will be unlike any watch fair held before and is free to attend. Nineteen amazing independent brands from around the world will be there showing and selling their watches and accessories, as well as taking the time to meet with you, their fans and customers.
Wind-Up: New York City is proudly sponsored by Autodromo, Crown & Buckle, Horage, MKII, Mühle Glashütte, and Analog/Shift, and will include the following exhibiting brands:
- 10:25 Vintage
- Stevral (Benarus and Raven)
- Brew Watch Co
- Christopher Ward (first time in NYC!)
- Crown & Buckle
- Horage (bringing a watchmaker to do live demos!)
- Mühle Glashütte
- Oak and Oscar
As you can see, there will be a range of watches including automatics and quartz, under $500 to a few thousand, from vintage to super modern, dress to tool diver, and even a few in-house movements in the mix. Needless to say, there’s something that should interest everybody.
But that’s not all! On Saturday, October 24th, from 7-8pm, an RSVP-only panel will be held to discuss with representatives from 5 exhibiting brands the rise of watch culture in the US, the rise of micro and independent watch brands, watch design, and the business of starting and running a company. In order to reserve a seat (limited to 50), please sign up for the Wind-Up newsletter at windup.wornandwound.com, as we will be sending out an invite soon. Singing up will also guarantee you’ll be the first to know about future events and promotions.
So, please come join us October 23rd – 25th, 2015, for this great event. We hope Wind-Up will be the start of something new in the watch industry. It’s an event about enjoying watches, watch culture and celebrating emerging brands, without the exclusivity brought by large price tags. Hope to see you there!
Oh, and a huge thanks to Ariel for letting us post about this here on ABTW!
