RedBar Vancouver: The Evolution Of Watch Enthusiasts And Collectors In Canada.

RedBar Vancouver meets once a month on a given date and at a venue predetermined based on the number of individuals attending. In addition to the monthly meetups on a fairly regular basis brands as well as retail friends will reach out and host private events to showcase SIHH, Baselworld, and new watch novelties as they come available.

The #sexpile a term first used by RedBar New York COO Kathleen McGivney and frequently hashtagged on Instagram by watch enthusiasts. It is a quirky term used to describe a pile of watches thrown together in an organized chaos by watch enthusiasts and then photographed. Watch collecting tends to be a very niche hobby. Many of the collectors in our group tend to focus on collecting vintage watches which adds to the charm and nostalgia of this hobby. Photo credit: @agedpatina
Another common ritual among watch enthusiasts and RedBar members is the “wristshot” as a symbol of our unity and shared love of horology. Photo credit: @lordnantucket
