COVID-19 may have curtailed many of our best-laid plans this year, but it hasn't curbed the watch world's appetite for new timepieces. To that end, WatchTime New York, the City's most exciting horological event, is moving online this year and proceeding as planned, albeit in a digital format.
24 brands, from Bell & Ross to Blancpain and everyone in between, are participating this year, showing off their new wares in a series of panels and presentations. From October 22th through 24th, consumers will have the opportunity to log on and listen in on interesting horological discussions given and moderated by WatchTime editor-in-chief Roger Ruegger, senior editor Mark Bernardo, as well as longtime events partner and watch expert, Jeff Kingston. Highlights will include a spotlight on independent watchmaking, a discussion of the current state of the industry, and much more.
Tickets to the three-day event — which will run each day from 9am through 6pm EST — will cost $29, and a full schedule will be released in the coming weeks. For more information, including a full list of participating brands, check out the link below.
