WatchTime New York is back! For the fifth consecutive year, WatchTime magazine returns to Gotham Hall in Midtown Manhattan on Oct. 25–26, 2019 to host America’s premier luxury watch fair. A record 37 brands will be traveling from Switzerland, Germany, Japan, and around the United States to showcase their latest and greatest timepieces to collectors and enthusiasts of all levels.
The two-day event begins with a VIP soirée on Friday, Oct. 25, followed by a full day of exciting panels, seminars, and events on Saturday, Oct. 26. On Friday, doors open at 5 pm for a cocktail reception with a full open bar, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a hot food bar. This will be the first opportunity for collectors to meet with brand executives, watchmakers such as Stephen Forsey, Kari Voutilainen, Rexhep Rexhepi, and Romain Gauthier, plus WatchTime editors.
On Saturday, WatchTime New York welcomes guests at 11 am for a full day of browsing and discovery. A series of panels and seminars will run throughout the course of the day, including a seminar on the history of the chronograph, a discussion on whether or not the Golden Age of watchmaking lies in the past or present, and a look at the trends and tendencies of younger collectors.
