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 82 is QP’s Summer 2017 issue. In this issue we reconnect with the motoring watch, looking at both the vintage-inspired and cutting edge watches being produced with petrol in their veins. From TAG Heuer to Bremont, Hublot to Montblanc, there is something for every car nut.
Elsewhere in the issue, you will find:
- An in-depth report from Baselworld 2017, looking at the big trends, burning issues and stand-out watches.
- A rare visit inside Breguet’s manufacture, as James Gurney reports back from the masters of guilloché finishing and elegant sophistication.
- An exclusive interview with one of the most interesting and dynamic new faces to emerge in recent years – designer Fiona Kruger talks about her own inspiration, making clocks, and getting brands to take her seriously.
- Expert reviews of the latest watches, including the Patek Philippe Aquanaut Advanced Research project, Rolex’s re-designed Sea-Dweller, a masterful micro-rotor automatic from Romain Gauthier, waves of bright colour from Nomos Glashutte, a dive watch from Bell & Ross and an impeccable recreation of history from Grand Seiko.
- The full story on how Tudor and Breitling came together to share movement production facilities, swapping calibres in each direction to give birth to the Heritage Black Bay Chrono and new Superocean Heritage.
- The last word on reference 5320, the bold new perpetual calendar design from Patek Philippe.
We also have:
- How the smartwatch world is evolving – no longer a threat to the mechanical watch; more of a complement
