Groundbreaking WatchTime New York Watch Collector Event Returns

Watch Collectors, Enthusiasts, and Leading Brands Once Again Flock to Midtown Manhattan for Eighth Edition, October 20-22 at Gotham Hall

New York (September 11, 2023) – Eight years ago, WatchTime New York debuted a new event concept, pulling back the industry curtain and welcoming watch collectors and consumers to engage directly with watch brand executives, famed watchmakers, and tastemakers for the first time. The industry has never been the same, and in the intervening years, WatchTime New York has only grown in stature as one of the watch world’s signature annual events and the anchor event of New York City’s unofficial watch week. The luxury watch event will return to Gotham Hall in Midtown Manhattan from October 20-22 – offering three full days of product reveals, insider insights, and opportunities to try on fascinating new timepieces.

Thirty-four leading watch brands have already signed on to exhibit their latest timepieces at WatchTime New York 2023, including: Armin Strom, Arnold & Son, Bell & Ross, Blancpain, Bovet, Breguet, Bremont, Carl F. Bucherer, Chopard, Chronoswiss, Cyrus, Czapek, Frederique Constant, G-Shock, Gerald Charles, Glashütte Original, Greubel Forsey, H. Moser & Cie., HYT, Laurent Ferrier, Louis Erard, MB&F, Moritz Grossmann, Norqain, Oris, Parmigiani Fleurier, Perrelet, Piaget, RGM, Roger Dubuis, Speake-Marin, Ulysse Nardin, Voutilainen, and Zeitwinkel.

The brands will present their latest timepieces, some world-first launches live from the floor of WatchTime New York (to be announced) and many more fresh from their world debut overseas. Historically, the show has offered the first chance for North American collectors to get hands-on experiences with these rare wristwatches. Some of the new timepieces coming to the WatchTime New York show floor this year include:
