As large gatherings — concerts, festivals, and sporting events — remain on pause for the foreseeable future, and with more states extending stay-at-home-orders, the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the lives and livelihoods of people across the nation and the world.
This week, government officials announced a more rigorous approach toward large gatherings, some stating the possibility of keeping significant events on pause until a vaccine is available. But what does that mean for WatchTime L.A. and WatchTime New York?

WatchTime Los Angeles was originally scheduled for the end of May and has already been postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19. WatchTime New York is currently scheduled for October 23-25, 2020 for its sixth annual edition: “We know how important our events and reader trips are to the community and the industry, and how important and fun it is for collectors to connect with the watch community. WatchTime is therefore strategizing new ways to connect collectors with the watch brands in the best and safest way possible. Though the event may not look the same in previous years, we will continue to assess and keep you all informed.” Needless to say, in the event of a postponement, all tickets will be refunded.
