700 Fifth Avenue Boutique – New York
Manhattan and WEMPE — a love story
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.
