Last week, we hosted an evening celebrating the opening of COUTUREtime and welcomed RedBar’s First Annual National Meetup at The Neon Museum in Las Vegas

On Friday, June 1st, as a highlight program of our partnership with COUTUREtime,  Watchonista hosted over 300 COUTURE guests and collectors at a unique event taking place at Las Vegas’ iconic Neon Museum.

This vibrant and fascinating Las Vegas landmark site played host to all the leading lights of the watch industry, including COUTUREtime exhibiting brands, leading US and international retailers, assembled press, watchmakers, tastemakers, and influencers for a night that brought the industry and private collectors together like never before.

Gannon Brousseau, Senior Vice President of COUTURE remarked on the event,

“I thought it (the event) was fantastic, honestly, the highlight of the (COUTUREtime) week was that event. I’m thankful for what Watchonista did and I think Watchonista were incredible partners this year."

RedBar Group Collaboration

Another focus of the event was the joining of forces between Watchonista and the private watch collectors’ club RedBar Group, with the Neon Museum event being a central highlight on the agenda of RedBar’s First Annual National Gathering, taking place during COUTUREtime.

We welcomed RedBar’s invited collectors and gave them the opportunity to mingle with industry executives, meet retailers, and connect in person with people previously only known via Instagram.

An Evening We Won’t Soon Forget

This memorable evening saw progressive style met vintage Las Vegas in electrifying detail. From the choice of venue with its historic neon signs, to the energizing music sets played by DJ Antron and glowing, body-painted acrobats and costumed stilt ant eaters who wove through the crowd.

In the Neon Museum’s famous “boneyard” of marquee lights, guests enjoyed refreshments and craft cocktails, taking time to pose in the photo booth decked in their neon party accessories.

Throughout the night, guests and collectors shared their favorite moments to Instagram using the hashtags: #redbarcrew #watchonista #couturetime

We’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
