District Time - Participating Brands

Updated August 22, 2018: Three more brands on board! Welcome Choice Cuts Industries, Gallio Tempo, and Maison Celadon.

Two weeks ago, I announced that yours truly and Bill McDowell of McDowell Time were hosting our third Washington, DC watch event, District Time, sponsored by Janis Trading Company. The show will take place on September 30, 2018, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the fabulous District Architecture Center, 421 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC. It is free, open to the public, and loaded with watches to try, buy, and possibly even to win!

Which watches, you say? I'm glad you asked. 

Obviously, Bill will bring his very own McDowell Time collection (including the DelRay and the new Maxton). Our primary sponsor, Janis Trading Company produces NTH and Lew & Huey. Regular readers know that I've been a fan since the very first Lew & Huey and I have been particularly impressed with the NTH Subs and DevilRay, and the Lew & Huey Phantom. Owner Chris Vail will be there and if you have spent any time in the Watchuseek Affordable Watches Forum, then you know that he is a smart, witty, and utterly irreverent guy who knows a hell of a lot about watches. You can meet the man and shop his watches in the Janis Trading Co. Lounge at District Time. No, really. The man booked our private lounge. You're going to love it.

We also welcome our other participating brands: Aquadive, Caliper, Collins, Draken, Hager, Isofrane, Minase, Moduco, Montfort, Nezumi, Ocean Crawler, Sakab, Sartory-Billard, Tsao, Revolo, Ventus, Visitor, and Zelos. In addition, DC Vintage Watches will bring a selection of Heuers, Seikos, and other timepieces from the 1960’s and 70’s. Little Treasury Jewelers will have an assortment from small brands like Bremont, Nomos, Mühle-Glashütte, and Perrelet as well as the exclusive Grand Seiko line. Watch Gauge will offer their collection of microbrand watches which includes BOLDR, Reverie, Elliott Brown, Melbourne Watch Co., and Mercer, as well as special editions from NTH. Watch Limit will bring new and pre-owned luxury watches from brands like Omega, Brietling, and Tudor, and a selection of exotic straps.

Still not enough? Then maybe we can tempt you with the prospect of winning a watch from Vario, Scuro, BOLDR, or Nodus. Also be sure to stop by the AboutTime table and pick up your free magazine.

For those counting along at home, that's 28 participating watch brands not counting the selections of new and vintage timepieces to be brought by the 4 diverse dealers. It is a rare and wonderful thing to get this many uncommon watches under one roof, and I expect more vendors may be joining in the coming weeks. Watch this space and DCWatchShow.com for more information and updates.

In fact, there is still some space available, so if you are a watch brand, accessory vendor, or watch dealer who would like to be a part of the show, please contact me at DCWatchShow@gmail.com
