During the two-day event, there were a number of lectures and discussions, from notable figures in the watch world, such as Jeff Kingston (WatchTime), Joe Thompson (Editor-in-Chief of WatchTime) and Anish Bhatt (Founder of WatchAnish). There were also cocktails and whisky tastings, which added to the positive atmosphere of the show.

In speaking with Sara Orlando (Publisher of WatchTime), and judging from the amount of people in attendance, it is safe to say the first year was a success and next year will be even better.
