The WatchTime Los Angeles show is set to launch this coming May at the Hudson Loft in Downtown LA.
Running on May 3 and 4, the show will become the West Coast’s first ever two-day luxury event dedicated to wristwatch enthusiasts.
Organisers say the show has been designed to connect consumers, from serious collector to enthusiast to watch-curious.
They went on to confirm that attendees will be able to see the latest timepieces from over 30 premier international brands including Greubel Forsey, A. Lange & Söhne, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Grand Seiko, Romain Gauthier, HYT, and more.
WatchTime Events, produced by WatchTime Magazine, now encompasses both WatchTime LA and its sister event, the long-running annual WatchTime New York show, which will celebrate its fifth consecutive year this October.
Each WTNY event has been produced in partnership with luxury lifestyle platform Watch Anish, and the new LA event will reprise the long-running media partnership with Watch Anish, while Bhindi Jewelers will serve as the show’s West Coast retail partner.
The Manhattan-based show has evolved into a world-class destination event marked by record attendance, and WatchTime Magazine has launched the LA event to meet demand from its international network of collectors. Here is a first look at the two-day WatchTime LA event schedule:
Watchtime publisher, Sara Orlando commented: “WatchTime New York has become a destination event for collectors and for the industry, and over the years, many West Coast collectors have requested their own event in LA. We tested the waters with several one-day events on Rodeo Drive, which were very well received, and it became clear that LA’s vibrant watch scene needed and deserved its own two-day collectors’ event.”
She added: “LA attendees will get the opportunity to see the newest luxury timepieces first, flown in to LA fresh from their debuts at SIHH and Baselworld, while participating watch brands will get the chance to interact directly with LA’s most enthusiastic watch lovers.”
