Wempe Makes a Timely Expansion on Fifth Avenue

The iconic watch brand is taking over the entire ground floor of the Peninsula Hotel

Wempe is marking its territory along New York’s unrivaled shopping destination with an expanded Fifth Avenue store. The 5,500-square-foot space, home to exquisite timepiece and jewelry collections, will occupy the entire retail area on the ground floor of the Peninsula Hotel. “The new store will feel more elegant and generous in size, yet will still maintain the warm, comfortable and welcoming atmosphere that Wempe is known for,” says the company’s president, Ruediger Albers. “The in-depth collection and richness of the assortment will make us the go-to place when it comes to fine watches.”
