Working closely with Hudson Yards management, in partnership with Mount Sinai Health System, Watches of Switzerland is ready to safely welcome guests back to its flagship boutique in what has become New York City’s premiere shopping and entertainment complexes. Hudson Yards will initially operate at 50% capacity, offering free masks through the mall, and instituting one-way walking paths to ensure the safety and health of shoppers and employees.
"We are excited to be reopening our high performing Hudson Yards location. Our staff looks forward to welcoming back new and familiar faces and picking up where we left off as the premier destination for luxury timepieces in the tri-state area."
The ideally located High Line and Vessel facing boutique will resume their normal hours of operations: Monday – Sunday 11am to 7pm with additional services offered such as private appointments in person or via Zoom as well as delivery to client’s home and offices. On top of their exceptional selection of timepieces, Watches of Switzerland Hudson Yards will offer speciality presentations from IWC, Ulysse Nardin, and Grand Seiko. For the reopening, the Watches of Switzerland Hudson Yards lobby entrance features a specially curated selection of Ulysse Nardin’s latest offering, including the new Executive Skeleton Limited Edition while the High Line window display features Grand Seiko’s Heritage Collection which draws inspiration from the Japanese seasons. Originally scheduled for August, Watches of Switzerland is thrilled to present an installation with IWC for the reopening, highlighting the brand’s Portugieser collection – which will feature multiple exclusive timepieces.
