The International Festival of Independent Watch Manufacturers AUROCHRONOS is a cultural event that will take place from 30th September to 1st October, 2017 in Lodz, Poland at the modern venue Expo-Łódź, the largest exhibition centre situated in the heart of the city.
The Festival aims to promote independent watch manufacturers of watches and accessories, founders and creators of micro brands as well as family companies. The meeting will provide an excellent opportunity for all wristwatch enthusiasts to enjoy the variety of brands presented. We invite all watch lovers to come to the Festival, watch geeks and experts but also people who do not yet know that they have an unfulfilled appetite for timepieces.
In addition, it will be a place where young companies or those that are less known to the public will have a chance to find potential distributors of their brands. Visitors will have the opportunity to see, try on and buy unusual watches.
The organisers would like to show their appreciation for craftsmanship and creativity of independent manufacturers. That is why, in partnership with sponsors and a jury of professionals, the three best premiere watches (those whose official launch took place in 2017) will be elected and awarded with the Aurochronos Awards.
Besides the exhibition of unconventional domestic and foreign watch manufacturers, the organisers are also preparing numerous attractions, contests and lectures. All this will contribute to the friendly, modern and entertaining character of the Aurochronos Festival.
