SalonQP.com is a hub for the best journalism and most exciting live events in the world of fine watches. It is the online home of QP magazine, Britain’s top print publication for watch lovers, and SalonQP, one of the world’s most prestigious watch exhibitions. It will also be a platform for the growing roster of events and activities carried out under the SalonQP banner.
How we started
Our story began in 2003, when QP magazine was launched, taking its title from the abbreviation for the French term for perpetual calendar, Quantième Perpétuel. It soon became established as one of the most widely read and respected watch magazines in the world.
In 2009 the magazine launched SalonQP, an exhibition bringing together the top products from many of the world’s most famous watch brands. Since 2011 SalonQP has taken place at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, from where it has become established as one of the top events in the calendar for watch brands, collectors and enthusiasts the world over.
SalonQP and QP now
In 2018 QP magazine and SalonQP were acquired by Hearst, one of the largest magazine publishers in the world. Operating alongside Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar and Men’s Health, QP provides a dedicated and specialist take on the watch world that complements Hearst’s wider luxury business.
