QP MAGAZINE ~ DEVOTED TO FINE WATCHES
QP is the UK’s leading luxury watch magazine, available in print and through our iPad app. Launched in 2003, it is one of the most widely read watch publications in the world, reflecting the best and most creative in watchmaking.
In each issue we go in-depth with the finest watches from the world’s greatest houses, covering watch design, history, technology, collecting, auctions, and more.
We feature the most influential people in the watch world, the most significant stories and, of course, the most beautiful watches.
- And the name? It’s from the abbreviation for Quantième Perpétuel, the French term for “perpetual calendar”. QP is all about the long view and the highest standards.
QP is published four times per year

IN THE CURRENT ISSUE:
- Issue 80 is QP’s Winter 2016 issue, published on the opening day of SalonQP 2016 – the exhibition dedicated to fine watches that we host every year at the Saatchi Gallery in London. With that in mind, we focus this issue on Chopard, which used SalonQP to reveal the watch on our cover, the LUC. GMT One. We report on the brand’s 20 years of haute horlogerie watchmaking under its LUC banner – and why that turned out to be such a prescient development – within.
Elsewhere in the issue, you will find:
- A double whammy on the Patek Philippe Nautilus, as we review the 40th anniversary editions and examine the vintage market for rare versions of the sports-luxe icon
- An in-depth look at the HM8 from MB&F – a watch inspired by Can-Am racing of the 1970s
- Our three-part focus on the state of British watchmaking, taking in the great strides forward made by Garrick and Loomes, the evolving quest for identity at Christopher Ward, and the new crop of British micro-brands producing well-priced, design-led automatics.
- Expert reviews of the latest watches, including pieces by Audemars Piguet, Piaget, Rado, Swatch, and Vacheron Constantin.
- How Girard-Perregaux is setting about regaining its seat at the top table of high-end watchmaking
We also have:
- Aston Martin’s head of design on the one watch he would never part with
- Interviews with Montblanc CEO Jerome Lambert and Roger Dubuis boss Jean-Marc Pontrué
- An exclusive behind-the-scenes visit to Audemars Piguet’s revolutionary minute repeater sound lab
- The latest from the auction rooms, and much more besides
