Meeting the Shanghai Watch Gang

Think RedBar meets “Crazy Rich Asians”. The Shanghai Watch Gang is based in the most promising market in the world for luxury watches. And they are at the forefront of a new generation of Chinese buyers. “Last year, each of us sold one of his timepieces to organise our first watch festival,” they say. “That’s how passionate we are!”


he Shanghai Watch Gang represents a new stage in the development of watch expertise in mainland China. Groups of collectors are starting to come together. As with many Western groups, they are highly connected, and they met online first, discussing a wide range of horological topics, before organising regular physical encounters.
