Baselworld and SIHH are two of world’s greatest horological shows. Watchmakers from all over the world participate in both of these events, making them a watch enthusiasts dream. Both take place in Switzerland, however, making it a bit difficult for many to enjoy the stunning pieces and events at these horological shows.
But not all horological shows require a plane ticket to Switzerland. This past week, from April 8th to April 13th, the third annual Madison Avenue Watch Week took place in New York City. Featuring a myriad of exhibitions and product previews from luxury watch designers, Madison Avenue Watch Week was a huge hit.
Boutiques between 57th and 86th streets opened their doors to participate in the event. Madison Avenue Watch Week featured a broad range of price points and styles; from vintage timepieces to luxury pieces.
This years events included a Girard-Perregaux watchmaking demonstration, a Breguet watch viewing, a private viewing of Hublot’s 2013 collection, and an F.P. Journe sneak preview.
Participants this year included Antiquorum, Asprey, Blancpain, Breguet, Biccellati, Chopard, David Yurman, De Grisogono, F.P. Journe, Fabergé, George Jensen, Girard-Perregaux, Graff Diamonds, Hublot, Montblanc, Porsche Design, and Vacheron Constantin.
