May in New York is the Mardi Gras for watch lovers all around the world. Why? Well, in this fabulous month, NYC takes on a watch theme. First with Madison Avenue Watch Week, and then with Timecrafters 2014, I don’t think one city can get any better than this. Madison Avenue Watch Week, or MAWW, is a five day long event, starting on the fifth and ending on the tenth, where, generally by appointment or invitation, watch enthusiasts get a chance to spend some “paradise-like time” with the watches of their dreams. The event, run by the Madison Avenue Business Improvement District, offers a plethora of participating brands including Vacheron, FPJourne, Hublot, and Panerai, just to name a few.
The other highlight of the month is Timecrafters 2014, a Basel-like event right in the center of New York. Similar to MAWW, Timecrafters will also feature the new collections of many world renowned brands, just on a larger scale. Entrance to Timecrafters will run you about twenty dollars at the door or ten dollars if you pre-register online.
