The Virtual Windup Watch Fair is just two weeks away and we’re extremely excited to get the show underway. Today we wanted to share a couple of exciting announcements and preview a bit of what’s in store for the 12 days of Windup.
First, we’re happy to share that we’ll be running a pretty epic giveaway throughout the Windup show. We’ve got over 20 prizes up for grabs from a number of the brands participating in the Virtual Windup Watch Fair, including Christopher Ward, Lorier, Zodiac, Brew, Stowa, and Yema, among many others. We’ll be sharing complete details about this giveaway in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back on Worn & Wound to learn more.
We’re also running a special promotion on the Windup Watch Shop throughout the Virtual Windup Watch Fair. During the 12-day event, all purchases from the Windup Watch Shop will be eligible for double points through our loyalty program. Instead of earning 5 points for every $ 1 you spend, you’ll earn 10 points. So, if you purchase one of our Model 2 Premium straps for $ 95, you’ll get 950 points instead of 475. Purchase a Hamilton Khaki Field and you’ll receive 4,950 points instead of 2,475. That’s a pretty great deal – just 5,000 points get you $ 50 off your next order.
So what can I expect at the Virtual Windup? Great question! Every day of the show, we’ll be publishing at least one video interview, along with some other types of content, like product announcements or podcasts. Here’s a rundown of some of our favorite drops from throughout the show.

We talk about Roberto Clemente’s legacy and the recently-released Big Crown Pointer Date Roberto Clemente Limited Edition. Lastly, we cap off the day with a video interview of Rolf Studer, co-CEO of Oris Watches, about their new Caliber 400 movement and the recently-announced Aquis that features it.
