The Windup Watch Fair is Returning to San Francisco and Expanding to Chicago!

We’re excited to announce that Windup Watch Fair is returning to San Francisco on March 27-29 at 459 Geary Street. This is the third annual San Francisco Windup Watch Fair, and it’s going to be our best ever. As always, the Fair is free and open to the public.

We’re also excited to announce that we’re expanding Windup in 2020 to Chicago! For years, readers, podcast listeners, and customers have been asking for us to expand Windup to the mid-west and we’re incredibly excited to have the opportunity to do that this year. The Chicago Windup Watch Fair will take place July 10-12. We’ll have more details to share soon, but in the meantime, be sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on future announcements.

For anyone who may be new to Worn & Wound or the Fair, here’s a rundown: the Windup Watch Fair was launched in 2015 to be a watch event for everyone. At the Fair, we showcase brands ranging from new independents with just a few models to larger Swiss and German houses with rich histories and deep catalogs. What ties the brands together is that they all have a unique perspective and their products offer a great value. Windup is also all about getting our readers in front of watches and the people that make them, so the Fair is always free and open to the public.


We’re excited to have a great roster of sponsors for the third annual San Francisco Windup. Back as our lead sponsor is Oris. They’ll have their full collection of watches, including the Divers Sixty-Five, Big Crown Propilot, and Aquis lines.

We’re happy to announce that BALL Watch is joining Windup for the first time. Known for their use of tritium tubes on their watch dials and distinct tool watch tech, you’ll definitely want to check them out. Brew Watch Co is returning to Windup San Francisco fresh off the release of their Mastergraph chronograph – a must-see at the show. Christopher Ward is making their first appearance in San Francisco, bringing with them a wide selection of their very popular lineup, including their Military Collection, C1 Moonglow, and something else very special. Also making their San Francisco debut is Hamilton, which needs no introduction. If you’re itching to see their new Chrono-Matic 50, Khaki Pilot Pioneer, or Khaki Field Mechanical line in person, they’ll have you covered. Last, but certainly not least, Zodiac will be joining Windup with a wide selection of their watches, including their wildly popular Super Sea Wolf collection.
