If you are a watch lover and live nearby Princeton, NJ, you want to visit Hamilton Jewelers next week. On Friday, May 29, and Saturday May 30, this family owned business with more than 100 years of history is bringing the best of the best in watches to its Nassau Street, Princeton, store for its annual “Time of Your Life” Watch fair. But that isn’t all: not only will there be great limited edition pieces on hand, and brand executives from top brands, but also Hamilton Jewelers is giving away a host of incredible trip packages – offered by more than seven different watch brands.
Trips of a lifetime with watch brands range from auto racing (thanks to Tudor and Tag Heuer) to aerobatic aviation shows with Breitling in Atlantic City, and a lot more. Here is a rundown of some of the amazing trips that can be yours that weekend:
For car lovers: A two-night hotel stay at Wynn Las Vegas and a private tour of Shelby American and the Shelby Heritage Center in Las Vegas. The Center and its museum house some of the most famous Shelby Cobra cars ever produced. The trip is compliments of Baume & Mercier, which just unveiled its Cobra Capeland watch to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the American car’s FIA International GT Champion, win over Ferrari.

TAG Heuer is also offering life in the fast lane with four VIP Pit and Grand Stand passes to the Penultimate race of the season at Pocono IndyCar500 Race. As if the roar of the engines isn’t enough, the brand is also offering additional prizes around the race for a total of six packages. It is a fitting tribute to the brand that builds the Formula 1 watch that is a sponsor of the Monaco Grand Prix and has a global sponsorship with Nissan NISMO.
If you prefer the more American racing of the United SportsCar Champions series, then the Tudor USC Series tickets package may be your dream trip. This package offers VIP motorsports experience in Lime Rock Park, Lakeville, CT, with guest access to the Hospitality suites, Tudor swag and more. Lime Rock is home to some exciting IMSA racing that includes PC Prototypes and the GT Daytona production-based sports cars that race together, as well as superb stock car road racing.
For those who want diversity:
A trip for 2 to visit the watchmaking facilities of Shinola in Detroit and to visit the brand’s flagship boutique in Las Vegas is one of the prizes, as is a Yankees VIP gift basket that includes two premium field box seats and memorabilia Yankee gifts from Shock. Breitling is offering tickets to the Atlantic City Airshow Thunder Over the Boardwalk, where one of the largest aviation airshows takes place. And Jaeger-LeCoultre is offering insight into the fun world of film with VIP tickets to the 2015 New York Film Festival and a stay in a luxe NYC hotel. All of this is part of the Hamilton Jewelers’ Time of your Life watch fair. So you may want to get in your car and make the drive to Princeton. Oh, and those interested in watch buying, may want to know that Hamilton Jewelers is offering special financing and trade-in offers at this year’s annual event, and complimentary case back engraving (where the case back permits) on any watch purchased during the two-day event.
