700 Fifth Avenue Boutique – New York

Manhattan and WEMPE — a love story

Wempe New York

Our showroom in New York is the fulfillment of Hellmut Wempe’s dream. As the third generation of leadership at Wempe, Mr. Wempe launched the international expansion of his family-owned company by opening an initially compact showroom on Fifth Avenue. Today, we are still located on the world’s best-known shopping street, but are no longer compact: with a striking presence of no less than 500 square meters (almost 5,500 square feet) of retail space.

Precision Under The Saxon Firmament

If you want to know the exact time, you have to reach for the stars.

Crafting a chronometer requires time and patience. The labor invested by the watchmakers bears fruit in the pleasure these timepieces give their owners. When WEMPE decided to establish its own production site for chronometers in Glashütte a few years ago, only one location seemed truly appropriate
