This Thursday, SalonQP starts again and offers you a unique chance to discover the finest watches and meet the most interesting brands in the world. Does this sound excessive? Well we know it’s true!

Unlike Baselworld or the SIHH, SalonQP really offers the chance for every watch aficionado to walk in and have talk with people representing the brands. And not only people representing the major brand, also many of the greatest independent watchmakers are there.

SalonQP is a very accesible watch fair, which makes it easy to have  chat with brands and independent watchmakers, discuss their watches and maybe try something on your wrist. To name just a few…

Maîtres du Temps will be there with the new Chapter Two with chocolat dial, Heritage Watch Manufactory will be showing their magnificent chronometers and Roger Smith, a watchmaker that we have covered frequently on Moncohrome.

Also present are De Bethune, the Belgian horological treat Ressence, the great Peter Speake-Marin and MB&F will be showing their new Legacy Machine 1. If you’re planning to visit we can also recommend to have a chat with the people from Bremont, a young Brittish watch brand.  

And if you’re done with walking and talking (of course while enjoying a nice glass of something), there are several other things having a look at the ‘History of Watchmaking’ exhibition curated by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie and interactive workshops origanized by Jaeger-LeCoultre.  

There are over 40 brands showcasing their products at SalonQP this year, please take a look at the full list of exhibitors on the SalonQP Exhibitors page. On the website you can also information about directions, admission and everything else you need to know before you will dive into the horological feast called SalonQP. Have fun!
