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 2013 QP magazine and SalonQP were acquired by the Telegraph Media Group, home to Britain’s most prestigious newspaper, the Daily Telegraph. In 2014 the magazine was relaunched as a stylish, modern luxury publication, while retaining all of its nuance and quality as the authoritative British voice on fine watches. SalonQP exhibition continues to grow, with thousands of visitors seeing watches from a record 86 brands, including Jaeger-LeCoultre, TAG Heuer, Piaget, Tudor, MB&F, Urwerk, Bremont and Zenith, as well as the winning watches from the Oscars of luxury watches, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve.
With the relaunch of SalonQP.com, what started as a small, niche magazine has become a truly multi-platform business, and the authoritative British voice in luxury watches, whether in print, online or in the live arena.
