The inaugural WatchTime Los Angeles fair — a two-day horological extravaganza at Downtown Los Angeles’ trendy Hudson Loft — wrapped on Saturday. If you weren’t among the more than 400 West Coast watch connoisseurs who joined us and our partners for the event, here’s a list of 27 highlight timepieces that our 27 sponsoring watch brands exhibited there. Click on each watch’s name for a link to our detailed preview article, and we hope to see many of you at our next big watch-collector weekend!
In addition to the hundreds of timepieces, many of them making their U.S. debut at the show, guests were also treated to a series of panels and presentations tailored to the watch aficionado. Among them was a gathering of independent watchmakers and watch brand founders moderated by WatchBox’s Time Mosso (details on our horological rock star panelists here); noted collector and watch expert Jeff Kingston’s in-depth “Chronograph 101” talk; and a roundtable discussion about watch collecting in Hollywood, co-hosted by The Hollywood Reporter’s Degen Pener and our own senior editor Mark Bernardo, and featuring a group of notable figures in the entertainment and watch collecting worlds including actor/director Fred Savage and red carpet stylist Jeanne Yang.
