Madison Avenue watch boutiques welcome watch collectors, connoisseurs and the curious during the 10th Annual Madison Avenue Watch Week, which starts April 30 and runs through May 4.

Visitors can stroll the avenue to see the newest timepieces and can participate in educational sessions, watchmaking workshops and dynamic discussions around the most important topics in the watch world today.

Jaeger-LeCoutre Watch Workshop at the watchmaker’s Madison Avenue boutique.

The 10th Annual Madison Avenue Watch Week is organized by the Madison Avenue Business Improvement District, its leading watch brands and boutiques, and for the first time, in partnership with the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH). The event is also held in association with the Horological Society of New York and RedBar.

The public is invited to experience the new and iconic timepieces in special viewings at the twelve participating watch stores located on Madison Avenue between East 57th and East 75th Streets.

The Week kicks-off with celebratory opening night receptions on Tuesday, April 30 from 6 to 8pm. A spirited panel discussion will take place on Thursday, May 2 at 9am, when industry experts will review the most exciting launches from Watches and Wonders Geneva, explore how vintage watches of the past are inspiring today’s designs, and share their insights on what the future holds for collectors and connoisseurs. That will be followed by the annual Madison Avenue Watch Week Walk – a stroll up the Avenue to visit participating boutiques with the experts to experience the novelties first-hand.
