In early September, we announced that we would be hosting a weekend-long celebration in honor of 10 years of HODINKEE. Well the time has come, and we have a great lineup of speakers, panels, and activities for you to partake in. We have managed to gather a group of some of the most influential people in the watch industry, including François Bennahmias (CEO of Audemars Piguet), Wilhelm Schmid (CEO of A. Lange & Söhne), Raynald Aeschlimann (CEO Of Omega), Rolf Studer (co-CEO of Oris), Maximilian Büsser (CEO and Founder of MB&F), Jean-Claude Biver (Chairman of Hublot and watch industry legend), and many more.
In addition to brand executives, we have plenty of familiar faces from the vintage world, including influential collector and author John Goldberger, vintage watch expert Davide Parmegiani, senior consultant and Phillips auctioneer Aurel Bacs, and actor and collector Aldis Hodge. Oh, and Alton Brown will be there too – you know, for good measure.
You can read more about the panels and register here. As mentioned in our previous post, the event is totally free and open to the public (aka all of you). However, since space is limited, tickets will be assigned through a lottery system. Registration is open now and will remain open until 6:00 PM ET Friday, November 9, and you will receive your formal itinerary by Wednesday, November 14. If you miss the registration window, fear not, registrations submitted after the deadline will be added to a waitlist, and you should hear from us shortly thereafter.
We also have a series of events taking place during the weekend with a couple of our sponsors, including a gallery exhibition and Q&A with Grand Seiko Master Craftsman Yoshifusa Nakazawa. There will also be an event with our friends at Oris, and the Horological Society of New York will be offering classes over the weekend too. Stay tuned for details on these events later.
We would also like to thank our friends and sponsors Audemars Piguet, Grand Seiko, Oris, and Zenith, who are making this weekend possible.
