Windup Watch Fair NYC 2018

Official release:

Now entering its fourth year, the Windup Watch Fair is returning to New York City this November 2nd – 4th at the Chelsea Market. With an estimated 15,000 visitors throughout the weekend, Windup has quickly become the most popular watch event in America, and this year we’ll be featuring more watches than ever before.
The three-day long shopping event— brought to you by the team behind Worn & Wound and the Windup Watch Shop—showcases a curated selection of watch brands, accessories, and ephemera. It’s the only watch event of its kind, designed to bring watchmakers and customers together in a fun, approachable, and engaging environment.

“We’ve focused on making the Windup Watch Fair approachable for everyone, from seasoned collectors to newcomers,” says Worn & Wound co-founder, Blake Malin. “First, we curate a roster of brands that offer watches across a wide spectrum of styles and prices, so there’s something for everyone. We also organize the event so that it’s casual and engaging. There are no private booths or intimidating displays. Attendees are encouraged to come in, check out some watches, and talk to the people behind the brands.”

This year’s Windup Watch Fair is sponsored by Oris, a 115-year-old staple of independent, Swiss-made watches, as well as Farer, one of the most exciting new brands of the past several years, and StockX, an innovative platform for buying and selling watches. The 2018 NYC event is our largest ever, with nearly 40 brands exhibiting.

Some highlights include Autodromo’s automotive-themed chronographs, as well as the leading manufacturer of German wristwatches, Junghans, and Mido, whose timeless design, and technical innovation have helped them celebrate their centennial year in 2018.

Windup is free and open to the public, which we hope encourages everyone from seasoned collectors to first-time watch buyers to come in, take a look, and talk about their favorite watches.
