Best Watches in New York

Nowhere is the right watch more essential than in the city that never sleeps.

First came the Mad Men, then the fashion crowd. Now it’s Jewelry Row. But Madison Avenue also hosts some of the top watchmakers in the world. In the past few years, giants like Chopard and Graff have opened boutiques there, and more are moving in: In October, Geneva-based DeLaneau will bring ladies’ watches to the Upper East Side location, and early next year Swiss heavyweight Vacheron Constantin will open its doors. Other brands, like Girard-Perregaux, have created limited-edition styles for their New York boutiques. Here, a look at some of the newest watches on Madison Avenue.
