The cream of the British watch industry will descend on London this evening for the highly-anticipated 2016 WatchPro Awards.

Nearly 200 of the UK’s most successful watch executives will be in attendance to celebrate the achievements of the British watch sector in one of the capital’s most iconic venues.

After an extensive nomination process – which saw the industry invited to vote for their top brands and retailers across 14 categories – the winners of the WatchPro Awards will finally be crowned.

The black tie WatchPro Awards dinner takes place at the UnderGlobe of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, a faithful reconstruction of The Bard’s original theatre on the banks of the River Thames in London.

Guests will be treated to a fantastic three-course meal, free house drinks all night, and the excitement of the Awards presentation.

“The reaction to these Awards has been astonishing,” says Rob Corder, managing editor of WatchPro. “We created the Awards because the success of the British watch industry deserves to be recognised and celebrated not just by those working here, but by watch executives from around the world.

“It is an incredible achievement that the British watch industry has grown from the tenth largest market in the world to the fourth biggest this year. Of course global watch brands headquartered in other parts of the world are contributing to this success, but the business leaders in this country’s retailers, wholesalers, brand offices and service companies deserve the greatest respect for their efforts.”
