Exhibition SalonQP ready for its sixth edition
In continuation of our coverage of the most important regional watch exhibitions, WorldTempus prepares to take off for London for this year's SalonQP.
SalonQP once again brings together a broad mix of watch brands for its sixth edition, which will be held at London's Saatchi Gallery from 6-8 November 2014. From big names such as Raymond Weil, TAG Heuer and Zenith to smaller independent brands such as HYT and Urwerk, watch fans and collectors visiting the event will be treated to an excellent cross-section of the watch industry, from the most classical to the most avant-garde.
Visitors will also be among the first in the world to see an exhibition featuring the winning watches at last week's Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix, meet with some of the thriving niche brands based in the UK and even witness the birth of two new watch brands at the show.
SalonQP also offers a packed schedule of interesting and informative talks and seminars, on subjects as diverse as "Wars and Watches" and "How to Start a Watch Brand". If you're interested in watches and within travelling distance of London, the Saatchi Gallery is the place to be this weekend.
WorldTempus looks forward to taking the pulse of the British watch market, accompanying its partner brands to the show and having a rare glimpse of some products that may otherwise be extremely hard to see.
