Watchpro Watchpro Salon Returns to London in November
The biggest luxury watch show of the year in the UK taking place from 11 to 12 November
The show is packed with inspiring watchmakers ranging from the hottest artisan independents such as Laurent Ferrier, Zeitwinkel and Czapek & Cie up to commercial giants including Grand Seiko, Maurice Lacroix, Oris and DOXA. In all, we expect to have over 50 brands to discover.
There is also a lively seminar programme at Salon including Robert-Jan Broer, founder of Fratello Watches and Omega Speedmaster enthusiast club Speedy Tuesday, doing a talk on the origins of the club and the phenomenon of the community. RedBar co-founder Kathleen McGivney will host a special session with collectors followed by the long-awaited London global meet up.

“WATCHPRO Salon is a prestigious event, but we are making it accessible to everybody with a passion for watches,” says head of WATCHPRO Live Lucy Cheesewright.
The show debuted last year and was universally acclaimed for mixing blockbuster brands with independents that are rarely, if ever, seen in the UK to a delighted audience of watch lovers.
“Something interesting is happening in the world of watch events. Following the implosion of Baselworld, there are hundreds of watchmakers that have nowhere to show their latest novelties while, at the same time, the number of people with a passion for timekeepers has exploded, particularly in the UK,” notes WATCHPRO co-founder Rob Corder. “WATCHPRO Salon is an event where seasoned collectors and recent converts to the joys of horology can indulge in their passion,” he adds.
