On October 27, 2017, Worn & Wound, will open the doors to the 3rd annual Wind-Up watch fair in the iconic Chelsea Market. Here are the details.
Worn & Wound’s Wind-Up, which is free and open to the public, is a three-day watch culture event featuring a range of curated brands and accessories. Coming back to New York City for its third year, it offers an exciting and engaging environment, encouraging everyone from seasoned fans, to curious passersby to come in, take a look and talk watches.
“Building on the incredible success of last year’s event, we wanted to make this year’s Wind-Up even bigger and better than before,” says Blake Malin, co-founder of Worn & Wound and Wind-Up. “There is a huge variety of participating brands, many of which are only available online, so the fair offers a unique opportunity for guests to experience new and exciting products, unlike anywhere else.”
Worn & Wound’s Wind-Up 2nd installment in 2016 welcomed over 15,000 guests in only three days, establishing Wind-Up as the most popular watch event in the United States. The fair will feature 34 watch and accessory brands including a wide range of independent start-ups, American-based watchmakers and storied Swiss industry leaders. Designs, ranging from classic to out of the box and innovative, are inspired by day-to-day passions.
“Wind-Up has grown tremendously year to year and we truly believe that is because we create an environment welcoming to everyone regardless of background or knowledge in watches”, says Zach Weiss, co-founder of Worn & Wound and Wind-Up. “Wind-Up is all about interacting with brands and seeing incredible watches first-hand that will expand upon, and at times challenge, their notion of what a watch can be.”
In addition to the full weekend exhibitions, special promotions and activations will be featured throughout the fair. Worn & Wound’s Wind-Up Watch Fair is made possible by lead sponsor Oris Watches, and additional support from Autodromo, MKII and Van Brauge Watches.
