Wind^Up 2017 came and went in a flash, but wow, it was an amazing time. Our biggest show to date, Wind^Up 2017 featured 34 brands in the center of Chelsea Market in NYC. About 15,000 attendees came through the show in the 3-days we were open, creating an energetic atmosphere where watches were at the center of everyone’s attention.
This year, we saw a real spike in you, our readers and watch enthusiasts, who came for the whole weekend, hung out, talked to brands, talked to us, maybe picked up a watch (or two, or three) and just made it a really wonderful experience. If there was one underlying goal for Wind^Up in general, a goal that is more intangible than traffic and sales, it’s to create a watch fair that fosters relationships between brands and enthusiasts. A fair that is open and friendly, where attendees can explore this weird and amusing hobby of ours and talk with like minded individuals. We’re pretty sure this year nailed it, and that’s thanks to everyone who made the trip to attend the show.
