Although much of the watch-related world takes place in Switzerland or is otherwise based in some distant country, New York is often regarded as the United States’ capital of watches, and WatchTime New York is one of the calendar’s premier events for timepiece collectors and enthusiasts. Uniting guests with some of the industry’s most creative brands and influential individuals, WatchTime New York is a three-day event centered upon dialogue, interaction, and hands-on experiences that promote conversations between collectors and the people who create their favorite watches.

The seventh edition of WatchTime New York is set to take place from Friday, October 21 through Sunday, October 23, 2022, and the event will be held at Midtown Manhattan’s famous Gotham Hall. Since the start of WatchTime New York in 2015, the event has steadily grown in both size and prestige, inspiring numerous related shows throughout the year. WatchTime New York is now the flagship event that anchors the unofficial “WatchTime Week,” which has become a week-long period during the fall when the world’s biggest watch collectors, luxury lifestyle influencers, and industry personnel gather in New York City to create a crucible of interaction and celebrate all things related to wristwatches.

This year, 32 brands are confirmed to exhibit at WatchTime New York 2022, including A. Lange & Söhne, Blancpain, Bell & Ross, Seiko, Breguet, Chopard, Bremont, G-Shock, Oris, Greubel Forsey, Massena Lab, MB&F, Montblanc, Norqain, Frederique Constant, Parmigiani Fleurier, Voutilainen, and many more. Additionally, given that WatchTime New York attracts attendees from all over the world, the organizers of the event have worked to align this year’s dates with Windup Watch Fair New York, which collectively will bring more than 90 watch brands to Midtown Manhattan this October for three days packed full of hands-on presentations, panel discussions, demonstrations, and (of course) plenty of watches.

In addition to an exciting full schedule for those attending, the 2022 edition of WatchTime New York also marks an expansion of the event’s footprint to include the mezzanine of Gotham Hall, which will host A. Lange & Söhne, an upscale lounge, and a watchmaker exhibition and demonstration space. For serious collectors and enthusiasts, hearing a famous watch designer discuss their creative process or viewing a master watchmaker demonstrate the inner workings of an intricate mechanical creation is arguably one of the most exciting and exclusive experiences that you will find within this industry, and it offers a level of insight that can only be gained through WatchTime’s exclusive collector-focused format.

WatchTime New York offers collectors and enthusiasts a rare chance to socialize and engage directly with the brands and individuals who help shape this remarkable industry. As well as giving attending guests the chance to join the conversation by interacting with the people behind their favorite companies, select brands will also be launching new products to the world, live from the show floor during the event. As Roger Ruegger, WatchTime Editor-in-Chief notes, “The industry has proven to be incredibly resilient over the last few years, defying expectations as interest in wristwatches continues to soar. It’s clear that collectors are more eager than ever to discover and engage with new watch brands and the people behind them, which is precisely what WatchTime New York was established to do.”

The 2022 edition of WatchTime New York will follow the extended three-day format that was first introduced last year in 2021. This approach not only allows for a much larger assortment of high-profile panel discussions and demonstrations, but it also ensures that guests have plenty of opportunities to both attend presentations and connect with the various exhibiting brands in order to get hands-on experience with their latest new releases. Those attending WatchTime New York can customize their personal itinerary with single-day event passes, and ticket prices will be $39 USD for a single-day pass (either Saturday or Sunday), $50 USD for a two-day pass that offers admittance for both days, and $150 USD for a ticket to the exclusive cocktail party and watch show that will take place on Friday evening. Additionally, aBlogtoWatch readers can save $10 on either a single-day or two-day pass by using the coupon code ABTW10 at checkout.
