We feature the most influential people in the watch world, the most significant stories and, of course, the most beautiful watches.

IN THE CURRENT ISSUE:
- Issue 81 is QP’s Spring 2017 issue. Our cover star is the ground-breaking Audemars Piguet Royal Oak in black ceramic – find out more about its design and marvel at the very, very fine finish, something no other brand has matched in ceramic.
Elsewhere in the issue, you will find:
- An in-depth exploration of Vacheron Constantin‘s most complicated wristwatch ever made – the Ateliers de Cabinotiers Celestia. Editor James Buttery visited the factory to find out just how it was achieved.
- Another report from Switzerland – this time, Timothy Barber reports back from Panerai‘s ultra-modern manufacture, covering everything from minute repeaters to the fascinatingly high-tech LAB-ID project.
- An exclusive interview with one of the most influential designers in the watch world. Eric Giroud has been responsible for some of the most important designs of the last two decades – and yet he’s not even a watch guy, preferring to collect jackets!
- Expert reviews of the latest watches, including the Zenith 146 chronograph, Bulgari‘s Octo Roma, the outstanding Cartier Drive Extra-Flat and Baume & Mercier‘s Clifton Club.
- How Oris has found the missing piece of its puzzle, adding a sense of style and personality to rock-solid inventive watchmaking at prices that make sense
