WatchFest 2020 is on!
WatchFest is back and will be great on various levels. We continue to celebrate watches in Australia. We support the watch collecting community with some respite from the challenging times of 2020.
Join us for our sessions with the brands and special guests. There will be some great prizes. Whether you are new to watches or a seasoned enthusiast, you are welcome to join and immerse yourself in the world of horology.
We have Zoom sessions on the 14th, 15th, and 16th of October.
There will be physical get togethers on the 17th of October.
