Lead Sponsor: Oris

Oris is no stranger to Worn & Wound, and it’s no stranger to Windup, either. This year Oris returns as Windup NYC’s lead sponsor, and with all the great watches they’ve got going for 2018, the storied Swiss independent is sure to be a huge draw. From their killer collection of pilot’s watches to their bombproof divers, Oris boasts a wonderful catalog of well-priced, Swiss-made watches of all stripes. Oris

Since its founding, Farer has grown by leaps and bounds. What began as a brand with just a small collection of beautifully-designed quartz watches has grown into so much more, with Farer’s latest collection featuring three beautiful mechanical chronographs.
