Vegas Baby! Welcome To COUTUREtime Week!

Vegas Baby! Welcome To COUTUREtime 2019!

Occurring May 30th through June 3 at the Wynn Las Vegas, COUTUREtime is back!

By Watchonista

While SIHH and Baselworld certainly have their charms, neither locale holds a candle to the raw electricity of Las Vegas. Which is why – for the third year in a row – Watchonista is returning to the fabulous desert to celebrate timepieces and mingle with the people behind some of our favorite brands.

COUTUREtime 2019

This year’s edition will feature the largest number of watch brands to date, 34 to be exact! An impressive number of returning brands and even more exciting number of first-timers. Show stalwarts Tudor, TAG Heuer, Grand Seiko, Longines, and Oris will be joined by newcomers RJ Watches, MTM Watches, and U-Boat. It’s shaping up to be a very good year for the United States’ most important watch fair.

While last year was a banner year for Watchonista at COUTUREtime (read HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE), this year will see nearly our entire team descend on Las Vegas to experience all that COUTUREtime has to offer. Watchonista will be bringing the very best of COUTUREtime to our readers and social media followers.

Watchonista will be sharing the best throughout the week to our dedicated COUTUREtime page, our social media channels (@watchonista), AND for something extra special, Watchonista will be doing a special takeover of COUTUREtime’s Instagram channel during the show!
