Codek is a young brand that we first met at last year’s Windup San Francisco. Codek’s first watch, the Spiral, features a quirky, asymmetrical case and dial design meant to evoke the hairspring. In other words, this is a true watch geek’s watch. Codek
Collins Watch Company

Founded by Jimmy Collins, Collins Brand creates pieces inspired by classic field and pilot watches, while also drawing from Jimmyís love of audio recording equipment. Along with watches, Collins also manufactures American-made eyeglasses, which will be for sale at the show. They’ll have their latest pilot watch, the Hyperion, ready for you to check out.*Collins


Headquartered in Barbing, Germany in the heart of Bavaria, Damasko produces some of the toughest and most advanced tool watches around. Damasko is all about pushing the durability of a mechanical watch to its absolute limit, resulting in harder, more scratch resistant steel; more shock resistant movements; improved anti-magnetism; water resistance; and longer intervals between servicing. On-hand will be a varied range of the brandís watches. This is also the first time the Damasko team is showing in the States, so you’re going to want to swing by their booth and talk watches. Damasko
Dan Henry

Dan Henry has one of the most incredible vintage watch collections on the planet. Wanting to share his love of vintage watches with other watch enthusiasts, Dan Henry launched his value-packed, eponymous brand with a laser-focus on bringing to the masses beautifully designed and robustly made watches that pull inspiration from some of the most iconic eras of watch design.

Everest Horology Products

Everest Horology Products was founded by Michael DiMartini, and it has become the go-to place for straps for practically every modern Rolex available. If your Sub is looking for a new pair of shoes, then you should definitely stop by Everestís booth. Everest

Since its founding, Farer has grown by leaps and bounds. What began as a brand with just a small collection of beautifully-designed quartz watches has grown into so much more. Last year’s series of*three beautiful mechanical chronographs*was a huge hit, and this year Farer followed up with their new Split Second Flyback Chronographs. Youíll want to spend some hands-on time with these. We chatted with the team behind Farer here.*Farer

Inspired by the engineering and mechanics of high performance racing cars and bikes, Formex watches feature the brandís signature patented Case Suspension System, which makes for a very comfortable watch on the wrist. At the show, Formex will have on-hand their most popular watched, the*Essence, which is sure to appeal to those who prefer a more subdued aesthetic. Formex


Halios and brand founder Jason Lim are returning to Windup! Halios is a beloved Vancouver-based watch brand with a long track record of making killer watches that sell out as soon as they hit the site. Jason’s been teasing a new model on Instagram, so you’ll definitely want to mosey over to his booth to pick his brain about what he has cooking. Tune in to our chat with Jason Lim here. Halios


Making their third appearance at Windup, Junghans is a storied German brand that is perhaps best known for the Max Bill line. But beyond Max Billís wonderful creations, Junghans also has an incredible catalog of pieces in their mainline, among them the Meister Pilot, Form A, and Meister Driver. This year, they’ll be showcasing many of the classic, as well as 2019 novelties unveiled at Baselworld. Junghans

Laco is a storied German brand, perhaps best known for their period-correct Flieger/pilot watches. But itís not just pilot watches. Laco has built out a really robust catalog of interesting timepieces over the last couple of years, and we recommend checking out the brandís hand-aged ErbstŁck line.*Laco

Lorier made a splash with their neo-vintage Neptune collection last year (our own Christoph McNeill was really impressed with the series). They’ve since expanded the catalog, which now includes the Hydra and Falcon models. We chatted with Lauren and Lorenzo Ortega on the podcast, and we’re excited to have them join us out west.*Lorier

A brand based out of New York, Martenero isnít afraid of a little color. Each collection in Marteneroís catalog offers a vibrant twist on a classic design, from the Edgmere and Edgemere Reserveís revamped marine chronometer vibe to the Kerrisonís take on a casual sports watch. Check out our podcast with founder John Tarantino here. Martenero
