A Tale As Old As Time: Watches & Wonders Debuts in Miami

Calling all watch aficionados! Thanks to a partnership between the Miami Design District and the Fondation Haute Horlogerie (FHH), Miami’s most haute shopping district will welcome a new event that horology lovers won’t be able to resist.

Taking place February 16th-19th, 2018, in the Miami Design District, Watches & Wonders Miami will bring together 21 of the world’s leading names in luxury timepieces to unveil their latest watches in the Miami Design District. The coolest part? For some of these A-list labels, it’s the first time they’ve opened up shop in the United States at all. 

The lavish weekend will kick off on Friday, February 16th, with a concert from the Miami Design District Performance Series presented by The Knight Foundation (and produced by Grammy Award winner, Emilio Estefan!) in Paradise Plaza. From there, attendees can revel in a weekend-long “Telling Time” exhibition that includes nine videos, creative installations and dramatic performance works by international contemporary artists. Spread throughout the weekend, there will also be immersive virtual reality experiences about the world of fine watchmaking, educational workshops and even children’s programs, locking in the fact that it’s going to be a weekend of luxury for the whole family.

And at the first-ever Watches & Wonders, you can expect boutiques and pop ups from top luxury timepiece brands across the globe: like A. Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, BVLGARI, Cartier, Hublot, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Louis Vuitton, Panerai, Parmigiani, Piaget, Tag Heuer, Vacheron Constantin, Van Cleef & Arpels, Armin Strom, F.P. Journe, Kari Voutilainen, Ralph Lauren, RJ-Romain Jerome and Romain Gauthier.

...But that’s not all.

Adding to the weekend’s allure, Watches & Wonders Miami will be one of a few extravagant events for Miami’s finest happening over President’s Day weekend. On the agenda? Miami Design District Concours—which will put 100 of the most significant post-war vintage, sports/exotic cars and supercars on display, including iconic examples from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce—and the 30th annual Miami Yacht Show, which will bring the world’s most extraordinary and uniquely-designed yachts to Miami Beach’s Collins Avenue.
