Scenes from WatchTime New York 2017
As the thousands of timepieces at WatchTime New York make their way back to Switzerland, the boutiques they came from, or on to the wrists of the record number of attendees, the WatchTime staff has already begun reflecting on this year’s fair. It was our most successful to date, with a record number of brands and knowledgable watch enthusiasts showing off their passion for timekeeping. While we have plenty of thoughts about the show, we’d love to hear from all of our readers that attended this year’s fair. Feel free to sound off in the comments about anything you liked or disliked, want more of or less of. For those that couldn’t make it to Gotham Hall for this year’s fair, here are a few of our favorite images from the weekend and we hope to see you this time next year.
