From Ehren Bragg – Partner, World Watch Market
I’m very proud to announce the launch of World Watch Market, a new consumer watch show in Las Vegas the weekend of June 4-5.
For decades there have been trade shows in Las Vegas for the watch industry, but none have ever been open to the public. These shows were developed to bring watch brands together with the watch and jewelry retailers and with the watch-oriented press. Consumers simply aren’t allowed.
This is the reason my friend Glen Bowen and I decided to establish a new show so that the public has unfettered access to executives, designers and engineers from their favorite brands.
These are brands rarely seen in the U.S. at local retailers. But as a registered guest, you will get to see, touch and caress hundreds of amazing watches at the luxurious presidential suite of Trump International Hotel this June.
We all love to read about these watches however now, by special invitation, DuPont Registry readers are invited to come and browse among the many exotic watch and pen brands from Switzerland, Italy and beyond. Many of these pieces were recently introduced at the worldwide fair known as Baselworld, in Switzerland. Moreover, several brands will introduce even newer models at the World Watch Market in June.
In addition to an amazing array of watches, American fans will also find several high-end writing instruments that can only be defined as fine art.
The list of brands participating is impressive and runs the gauntlet between affordable and mind-blowing pieces of horological mastery. Some examples include:
Mr. Yvan Arpa of Artya will demonstrate his newly launched high complication pieces, including the incredible double-axis tourbillon with minute repeater.
Christophe Claret will show its remarkable complications including the Baccarat and Poker pieces which are actual working mechanical wonders for the owners to play the games anytime the mood strikes.
Vortic watches plans to unveil its affordable collections of classicly-styled, yet edgy looking wristwatches that run refurbished movements from antique American-made pocket watches.
The Trump International Hotel affords breath-taking views of the Las Vegas strip and surrounding city and the Presidential Suite will be open to the public from 9am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 4-5.
Tickets are available at the door. A one-day pass is $25 and $40 for the weekend, however for a limited time DuPont Registry readers can register with a 50% discount by entering “dupont” in the discount code when visiting this link. Please register as soon as possible because quantities are strictly limited. Once these tickets are taken by the lucky few, all others will have to wait until next year!
Additionally, World Watch Market will host a champagne and hors d’oeuvres reception Friday evening where you can mingle with other collectors and swap stories with industry executives, brand owners and their representatives. However, due to restrictive space, only the first twenty-five people to register can be invited to the party.
