After a successful 2018, Watches & Wonders is heading back to Miami in 2019. The Fondation Haute Horlogerie (FHH), in partnership with the Miami Design District Associates (MDDA), just announced the dates for the 2019 iteration: February 15-17 (President’s Day weekend) in the Miami Design District.
There will be a total of 28 exhibiting watch and jewelry maisons spread throughout the Palm Court and the surrounding streets of the Miami Design District. Watches & Wonders Miami will also include a new 10,000 square foot exhibition space in the Jungle Plaza. There will also be a number of presentations and programs, including the FHH’s watchmaking workshops, as well as enhanced VIP experiences. Marquee brands such as A. Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, Bulgari, Cartier, and F.P. Journe are back again for 2019. Joining them are 11 new brands, including De Bethune, Dior, Girard-Perregaux, H. Moser & Cie., OMEGA, and Zenith. This is significant, as it marks the first time that brands from all four of the world’s top luxury groups — Kering, LVMH, Richemont and Swatch Group – will come together to support Watches & Wonders Miami.
The Miami Concourse will again be taking place during the same time, showcasing rare vintage, sports and exotic cars from some of America’s most respected collectors. The 31st annual Miami Yacht Show will also be taking place that same weekend, with dedicated shuttle service to and from the Miami Design District.
“We are thrilled to once again be partnering with the Miami Design District for Watches & Wonders Miami,” says Fabienne Lupo, chairwoman and managing director of the FHH. “With even more leading watch and jewelry maisons participating and planning to showcase their newest creations and important historical pieces, along with our significantly expanded offering of conferences, workshops and events for the family, next year will certainly be bigger and better than ever.”
Revolution will be heavily involved with Watches & Wonders Miami, moderating panels, hosting collector events and covering this important American show. For more information, please visit www.watchesandwonders.com.
