With the world, and the watch industry, finally beginning to emerge from a year-plus period of pandemic-driven lockdowns, business closures, and gathering restrictions, WatchTime is proud to announce that its popular autumn collectors’ extravaganza, WatchTime New York, will return this year as a live, in-person event after being removed from the calendar in favor of an all-virtual alternative in 2020.
The sixth version of WatchTime New York, which was last held in WatchTime magazine’s 20th anniversary year of 2019, will once again take place at midtown Manhattan’s Gotham Hall and will welcome an eclectic and impressive group of sponsoring watch brands — 24 of them confirmed so far — as well as collectors, connoisseurs, industry VIPs and influencers, and other members of the worldwide watch community. This year’s edition will span three days, from Friday, October 22, through Sunday, October 24, with a cocktail reception on opening night and panels and presentations throughout the weekend. Safety protocols based on current CDC guidelines will ensure health and comfort for both guests and sponsors.
If you’ve missed face-to-face engagement with your fellow watch enthusiasts and seeing and feeling the newest timepieces in the metal (and we know you have), WatchTime and its partners are ready to welcome you back to the United States’ most important multi-brand watch event. Tickets are available here, along with more info on WatchTime New York 2021 and its sponsoring brands.
