The good people at WatchTime know how to hype up an event, and that’s possibly why it has rapidly become one of the most talked about and well attended of all watch events, and it’s all about the customer.

Now in its fourth year, the WatchTime New York Show has also been established as one of New York City’s most anticipated annual events. Next week, WatchTime New York will return for its fourth edition, bringing 30 of the world’s most fascinating and luxurious watch brands to Gotham Hall on October 26 and 27.

WatchTime New York is the largest public watch event in the United States, and in fact, the only event of its kind in the country. For four years, this influential event has captured the attention of watch collectors and enthusiasts from around the world, who flock to the New York show for first looks at the latest watches by 30 leading designers and brands.

WatchTime New York is a hit with budding millennial watch enthusiasts as well as long-time collectors. The event’s format allows unparalleled access to watch designers, VIPs, and influencers, as well as hands-on time with rare, art timepieces, tech-driven concept pieces, and approachable, mid-market models.

WatchTime New York welcomed nearly 1,000 attendees to each of its past editions (over just two days), and this year’s event on October 26 and 27 looks to be bigger than ever.

If you are interested to attend WatchTime New York 2018, bookmark October 26 and 27 for two days of cocktails, watch collection presentations, and panel events.
