Salon Sightings

Evan Rast reports on what made him tick at this year’s SalonQP

While it might be de rigueur for a watch enthusiast to show up at the major watch shows of the year – aka SIHH and BaselWorld – I have it on good authority that it is now much more hip to be around during less known, but equally worthy horological events. Exclusivity is the watchword of the industry, pun intended.
So anyway, one of these shows was held in London on the second week of November. The SalonQP, organized by the publishers of Quantieme Perpetual magazine, was, for the second year, held at One Marylebone, a deconsecrated Church in northern London.
The show featured 35 exhibitors, a mix of industry heavyweights, independent watchmakers and a good number of up-and-coming British names. A lot of new timepieces were displayed, and guests had a good time discovering their many functions. There was also a round of lectures and forums, and impressive attendance, which, in all, made for a successful three days of horological bonding.
