It seems that last year’s Watches & Wonders Miami, the Magic City’s first luxury watch event, was a resounding success as the organizers have announced plans to stage another edition from Feb. 15–17. Three days of great watches and events. What else could you ask for?

The Miami Design District has become a hub for luxury watches following the opening of beautiful boutiques by the likes of Panerai, Audemars Piguet, Hublot, IWC and A. Lange & Söhne, and other luxury brands making it a natural environment for the high-end watch event, which is presented in partnership with the Fondation Haute Horlogerie (FHH) which also stages SIHH.

3 Days of Watches and Wonders in 2019

The three-day weekend of watches will feature 28 exhibitors from four of the world’s top luxury groups: Kering (owner of Ulysse Nardin among others), LVMH, Richemont and Swatch Group. The event will coincide with the Design District’s Miami Concours featuring rare vintage, sports, and exotic cars, and will also coincides with the 31st annual Miami Yacht Show. It will also include an impressive new 10,000-sq.-ft. exhibition space, as well as new “VIP experiences” for serious shoppers and collectors. In addition to the brands mentioned above, 11 new brands will be involved next year including Omega, Zenith and Roger Dubuis. Unfortunately, Rolex is not participating.

What Fabienne Lupo Said

“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, next year will certainly be bigger and better than ever,” states Fabienne Lupo, Chairwoman and Managing Director of the FHH. Not everyone is bound to be pleased however as the Miami event precedes Baselworld by more than a month.

“Watch aficionados will be able to view magnificent timepieces, many of which are being debuted in the US for the first time,” notes Craig Robins, CEO of Dacra Development and developer of the Miami Design District. “Likewise, car enthusiasts attending from all parts of the world will not be disappointed with the unparalleled selection of exceptional cars at the Miami Concours.” An expanded “entertainment offering” is also being planned with live concerts, DJ performances, and food and drink from Miami’s hottest new chefs and mixologists.
