After an incredibly successful first year in the Miami Design District, the neighborhood has once again partnered with the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie for a full weekend of activities as part of the second edition of Watches & Wonders Miami taking place February 15-17 throughout the neighborhood with 30 different watch and jewelry brands on display.
Watch enthusiasts, connoisseurs and collectors from the Miami area, across the country and beyond, will be the first to see the newest timepiece and jewelry collections that WWM exhibitors are bringing directly after the 2019 SIHH and before Baselworld. Many leading maisons, including Girard-Perregaux, Ulysse Nardin, Hublot and HYT, are using WWM as the venue to launch exciting new products for the first time.
The three-day event is filled with plenty of programming including conferences, watchmaking workshops and expert panel discussions led by industry leaders including top journalists, collectors, and retailers from luxury brands and auction houses. These topics range from insider tips on collecting to discussions on records and complications, to the impact of social media. In addition, there will be dedicated women’s topics, including ‘Women Who Collect’ and ‘Can Women Save The Watch World.’ Also new for this year is ‘The Indies at Watches & Wonders Miami’, a series of panel discussions and social meet ups being organized by the show’s smaller independent exhibitors that will take place in Jungle Plaza each day. But the fun doesn't stop there, outside in the open-air plaza guest DJ Brendan Fallis will perform for happy hour events on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m., while Jungle Plaza will also be the venue on Sunday for a range of special workshops designed just for kids as part of the neighborhood's monthly Family Day.
Watches & Wonders Miami coincides with the second annual Miami Concours, being held on Sunday, February 17. The exhibition will feature more than 75 of the most sought after sports cars and luxury automobiles from the country’s most prominent collectors. This year’s event will honor legendary automaker Horacio Pagani. And once again Watches & Wonders Miami is again partnering with the Miami Yacht Show, taking place from February 14-18 in its new location at One Herald Plaza. With Ulysse Nardin as its official timekeeper, the event will showcase more than 500 extraordinary and uniquely designed yachts and superyachts from the world’s foremost custom boat builders. Shuttle service will be available to and from the Miami Design District.
Watches & Wonders will take place from Friday, February 15 to Sunday, February 17 throughout the neighborhood. Find the full line up of programming here.
