Mark your calendars: WatchTime New York, which sold out to record audiences last year, will return, bigger and better, on October 13 and 14 at New York City’s Gotham Hall, at 1356 Broadway, and tickets are going fast. Once again, watch collectors and aficionados will be able to see and try on watches from a wide array of companies and talk to watch-company executives.

This year, 30 watch brands have confirmed their attendance, from major players like Omega, TAG Heuer, Jaeger-LeCoultre, A. Lange & Söhne, Breguet, and Blancpain, to hot independent watchmakers like MB&F, Romain Gauthier, and Kari Voutilainen (The full lineup of brands appears below).

    How can you have a watch event, and not have Bulova watches? Aside from Omega, and I would have to really like it, the rest are just Eurotrash to me. These are mechanical watches that require yearly servicing, and are really crazy expensive. It seems like a group of watch snobs to me. It seems like Watch Time simply does not like quartz watches. I guarantee you my Accutron Spaceview is so much more interesting than some overpriced mechanical watches. I have 10 Bulova watches, and my new Precisionist is so much cooler than any of these things. If that watch doesn’t look good when I am wearing it, I have no use for it. Thank you for inviting me, and if I was in NY, I would attend, but my first stop would be the Bulova store. I really don’t see why you are emailing me. LOL. Have a great day!

    Met Roger and Minda (again) at wonderful street watch fair on Rodeo Drive a couple months ago. Looks like my travels will bring me to Connecticut in mid-October and a train ride and hotel to NYC to attend this year’s Watchtime NYC. I’m looking forward to it; first time attending since about 6 years ago when it was held in hotel on Avenue of the Stars in Century City, Los Angeles.
