The Windup Watch Fair is Coming to Chicago!

We’ve been planning to expand the Windup Watch Fair to a third city for a while now, so we’re beyond excited to be officially bringing the show to Chicago in just a couple of weeks. Not only are we hosting Windup in the midwest for the first time, but we’re also doing it in style with our largest and most diverse event ever.

221 North Paulina Street, Chicago, IL 60612
Friday, July 15: 12PM – 6PM
Saturday, July 16: 12AM – 6PM
Sunday, April 17: 12PM – 5PM

As with past Windup Watch Fairs, the Chicago event will be free and open to the public. All are welcome to check out great watches from 40+ brands and connect with like-minded enthusiasts. In Chicago, we’re working to make the Windup Watch Fair even more social with a full bar, lounge, and exciting live programming throughout the weekend.

Oris has played a lead role in helping make the Windup Watch Fair what it is today and they’re helping us launch the Chicago Fair in a big way. Oris will bring a wide selection of their most popular and recent releases to the Fair. This includes their new New York Harbor Limited Edition Aquis, Aquis Date Calibre 400, and Propilot X Calibre 400, among many others.

We’re also proud to have the support of several other of our favorite brands, including Accutron, Bulova, Christopher Ward, Citizen, Collective, Farer, G-SHOCK, NORQAIN, Topo Designs, William Wood, and Zodiac.

Also helping to make our first Chicago event a huge success are our friends at The Grey NATO Podcast. In addition to having a booth at the Fair to meet TGN fans and talk watches, James Stacey and Jason Heaton will be podcasting live from the event. You don’t want to miss it.
