Timecrafters set for show in May
The annual Timecrafters exhibition is set to return in May. With this year's slogan: "every watch has a story, what's yours?", the premier luxury watch event in the US will feature some of the biggest names in horology including Audemars Piguet, Richard Mille, Chopard, Hublot, A. Lange & Sohne, Roger Dubuis, Zenith, Parmigiani, Frederique Constant and Vacheron Constantin.
"Our aim is to educate newcomers to the watch world, while attracting watch enthusiasts and passionate collectors with a range of ultra complex timepieces," said Timecrafters Co-Founder Isabelle Boudringhin. "Timecrafters is the only luxury watch show for consumers in the US, which showcases the highest quality of craftsmanship. From the watch industry's most iconic brands it brings watch enthusiasts together to share and learn about the industry," he continued.
The biggest attraction at this year's show will arguably be the world's most complicated watch — 57 complications — by Vacheron Constantin. Apart from the showcase of watches that made their appearances at SIHH 2016 and the upcoming Baselworld, other activities include an F1 simulator by Hublot, several panel discussions as well as five watchmaking workshops that are priced at Dhs1,500 per person.
Timecrafters will run May 13-15, 2016, at Park Avenue Armory in Manhattan New York. For more information visit timecrafters.com.
