Yesterday evening I met #ruedigeralbers.

Online of course...

I am huge fan of New York and I go there often, very often even...

So it was time to meet Rudy again, I missed him and his charming team ...

Normally I would have gone to Wempe on Fifth Avenue and as so often before we would have gone for a drink, lunch, dinner... Dinner? #LeBernardin is always a great choice. #AldoSohm an Austrian fellow and friend is the wine director there. He also runs #AldoSohmWinebar just round the corner of Le Bernardin. I invite to listen to longtime friends talking about the business, watches, trying to give an outlook and much more.

New York – 700 Fifth Avenue / 55th Street

New York – 665 Fifth Avenue:

Here are some information about Wempe on Fifth Avenue: In 1980 the decision was made to open the company’s first branch abroad, and the city of choice was New York. True to the philosophy of his predecessors, the grandson of the company’s founder believed that only a top location was worthy of consideration. That is why the final choice was obvious: a spot on Fifth Avenue. The first years of the new shop were not easy, but eventually Wempe established itself in New York as well. That generated fresh momentum. The next branches were established in Paris, Vienna, London and Madrid. Hellmut Wempe developed the locally operating family-owned company into an international firm. Today Wempe even operates a boutique on the cruise ship MS Europa.
