After last year’s successful first edition, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie and the Miami Design District will once again host Watches & Wonders in Miami over Presidents’ Day Weekend, February 15-17, 2019. This is exciting news for watch lovers everywhere – we attended last year’s show (even hosting a little meet-up too) and it was an unqualified success, unlike any other watch show we’ve seen before in the United States. The second edition promises to be even better, with more brands and new partnerships adding to the experience.
There will be 28 watch brands exhibiting during the event (up from last year’s 21), representing all four major luxury groups (Kering, LVMH, Richemont, and Swatch Group). The full list of participating brands is as follows: A. Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, Bvlgari, Cartier, De Bethune, Dior, F.P. Journe, Girard-Perregaux, H. Moser, Hublot, HYT, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Kari Voutilainen, Louis Vuitton, Omega, Panerai, Piaget, Roger Dubuis, Romain Gauthier, Romain Jerome, Speake-Marin, TAG Heuer, Tiffany & Co., Ulysse Nardin, Vacheron Constantin, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Zenith.
“With even more leading watch and jewelry maisons participating and planning to showcase their newest creations and important historical pieces, along with our significantly expanded offering of conferences, workshops and events for the family, next year will certainly be bigger and better than ever,” says Fabienne Lupo, Chairwoman and Managing Director of the FHH.
Additionally, partnerships with the Miami Concours and Miami Yacht Show will expand Watches & Wonders’ reach beyond the traditional audience, inviting auto and yachting enthusiasts to join in the fun.
“Watches & Wonders Miami unites the top luxury timepiece and jewelry brands for a spectacular weekend program and we are thrilled to host once again in the heart of the Miami Design District,” says Craig Robins, CEO of Dacra Development (developer of the Miami Design District). Watch aficionados will be able to view magnificent timepieces, many of which are being debuted in the US for the first time. Likewise, car enthusiasts attending from all parts of the world will not be disappointed with the unparalleled selection of exceptional cars at the Miami Concours.”
You can bet that we’ll be part of the festivities again this year and we look forward to seeing you there.
