Watch2009 Maastricht
November 14 -15, 2009

Maastricht, traditional grandeur



First established by the Romans over 2050 years ago, Maastricht has a legitimate claim to being the oldest city in the Netherlands.
The old city walls, Roman excavations, the St. Servaas Bridge - history is everywhere in Maastricht.
Maastricht has long been famous as a centre of tradition, history, culture and craftsmanship.
Class and allure: that's what Maastricht is famous for!

High-end location



Castle “De Hoogenweerth" is romantically situated at the banks of the river Maas on a peninsula (3 ha. park),
surrounded by water and very close to the German and Belgian border.
Unique about this castle is the fact that during the event we will have 100% privacy!
There are 450 parking places on the Castle’s grounds.

NEW ! Watch2009 Hamburg
November 21 – 22, 2009

Hamburg, vibrant sea port and home to Germany's millionaires



Home to more millionaires than any other German city, Hamburg is the second-largest city in Germany.
The city is home to approximately 1.8 million people, while the Hamburg metropolitan area has more than 4.3 million inhabitants.

The tradition of Hamburg watchmaking



For the bold navigators of the seas, chronometers were manufactured in Hamburg as early as two hundred years ago.
These highly accurate clocks and watches were indispensable for a definite navigation at sea.
In Hamburg, as a major seaport, the need for experts who were able to build and maintain chronometers arose quite early.
Because of cost- and capacity-reasons a part of the production was outsourced to the town of Glashütte in Saxony.
This laid the foundation of today’s German watch industry.
