Windup Watch Fair Discussions: Nodus and Formex

Earlier this week, we brought you a dispatch from the Windup Watch Fair in the form of a pair of interviews with Chase Francher of Oak & Oscar and Mike France and Jorg Bader of Christopher Ward. Today, we have two more conversations from the show, this time with Wes Kwok, co-founder of Nodus, and Raphael Granito, CEO of Formex.

Nodus has become a firm presence in the enthusiast watch community over the past few years by putting a personal touch on their watches. They’re an L.A. brand through and through, and their brand really thrives on community involvement, so it was great to see them back at a Windup fair, interacting with fans both new and old. Formex presents an interesting contrast – they’re based in Switzerland and put a premium on novel case construction and manufacturing techniques, but are no less connected to the watch community, and it was similarly great to see the response to their newest watches from Windup attendees.

Keep your eyes on the Worn & Wound podcast feed, because we’ll be serving up another pair of interviews next week. The final installment will include an interview with Lewis Heath of anOrdain, Bill Yao from MK II and Tornek-Rayville, as well as a chat with Etienne Malec and Guillaume Laidet of Baltic and Nivada-Grenchen, respectively.
