Watch2008, the 1st watch fair showcasing independent and innovative watchmakers, will be held on December 6th and 7th at Castle Hoogenweerth in Maastricht, The Netherlands. Visitors will have the unique opportunity to meet and talk to the watchmakers and experience their latest products.
?¢Ç¨?ìAn event like this, mainly focused on the independent watch brands, is something we lack in the Benelux and maybe even in all of Europe?¢Ç¨¬ù, says Ernie Romers, director and owner of Watchuseek.com, one of the organizers of Watch2008.
?¢Ç¨?ìA fair where pure craftsmanship comes first and the producers can share their knowledge and enthusiasm with true connoisseurs. That?¢Ç¨Ñ¢s what Watch2008 is all about!?¢Ç¨¬ù. In the opinion of the organizers, the glamour and location of Castle Hoogenweerth make it a fitting surrounding for this gathering.
