Horological Society of New York 2019 Gala & Charity Auction

About this Event

The Horological Society of New York (HSNY), America’s oldest watchmaking guild, founded in 1866, invites watch enthusiasts to celebrate 153 years of tradition at the 2019 Gala & Charity Auction on Wednesday, April 17, 2019. For the first time, HSNY’s biggest night of the year will be held at the Manhattan Penthouse, an exceptional event venue boasting panoramic views of the New York City skyline.

Members and guests will toast to the year’s accomplishments and advancements in the field of horology. At the Gala, the Howard Fass Award will be presented, which is given to individuals judged to have shown extraordinary dedication to the ideals which the Society pursues. In addition, the Henry B. Fried Scholarship recipients will be announced. For 2019, HSNY will award multiple Henry B. Fried Scholarship of $10,000 each, designed to assist students at full-time watchmaking schools in the United States.

The celebration will continue with a charity auction presented by Christie’s. This year’s coveted auction lots will include exquisite watches, rare horological ephemera and one-of-a-kind experiences including an all-expense-paid trip to Switzerland. In classic HSNY fashion, the evening will also feature a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres, a gourmet dinner with premium open bar and live music – all adorned with a backdrop of the Manhattan night sky.

Dress code is business formal.

All proceeds from the charity auction go towards the Horological Society of New York's ongoing educational programs. The Horological Society of New York is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, federal tax identification number 13-6139887.
