For this upcoming Windup Watch Fair, Oris is once again returning as our Lead Sponsor, and we’d like to thank them as well as our Featured Sponsors Farer and StockX for their support in helping make this year’s show possible. As any longtime reader of Worn & Wound already knows, we’re big fans of Oris and what they do, and, we might add, we’re not alone. Admirers of this storied Swiss brand appreciate Oris timepieces for their strong design language, solid build quality, and approachable price point. 2018 has been an especially strong year for Oris, and curious watch-heads will have an opportunity to play with and try on some of this year’s novelties and other catalog favorites at our fair. Among the many interesting watches Oris will have on-hand, this special edition Divers Sixty-Five (shown below) paired with a strap made of recycled plastic is definitely one to check out.
Oris has a well-known and chronicled connection to aquatic conservation, and this watch is the latest in a long line of interesting efforts that blend horology and conservation work. Other watches we recommend trying on are the new Pointer Dates (which we fell in love with at Baselworld), the revamped Aquis range, and the globetrotting Oris ProPilot Worldtimer. The 2018 NYC Windup Watch Fair will be hosted at Chelsea Market (75 9th Avenue) on November 2nd through the 4th. Hours of operation are:
Friday, November 2nd: 11:00am – 6:30pm Saturday, November 3rd: 11:00am – 7:00pm Sunday, November 4th: 11:00am – 7:00pm
We’re excited to see you there!
