WATCHPRO Salon has exceeded all expectations with close to 50 prestigious watch brands due to gather for the UK’s biggest exhibition for five years.

Despite the headwinds and challenges of the pandemic, demand from brands, retailers, media, collectors and enthusiasts has been overwhelming, with tickets for much of the two-day show selling out.

WATCHPRO Salon takes place from November 12 to 13 (Friday and Saturday) at the brand new 5-star The Londoner Hotel on Leicester Square.

The Londoner opened in the summer of 2021 on Leicester Square.

Blockbuster luxury brands like Grand Seiko will present alongside independent watchmakers ranging from artisan rare watch producers such as Laurent Ferrier, Kari Voutilainen, Charles Girardier, Speake-Marin, Cyrus, Schofield, Zeitwinkel and Czapek along with larger indies such as Oris, DOXA and Junghans.

“It is fascinating how WATCHPRO Salon is reflecting broader trends in the market. Consumers are looking for something different to add to their collections, but they find it hard to see anything new in this country because retailers are narrowing their focus on a shrinking number of brands,” suggests WATCHPRO co-founder and editor Rob Corder.

WATCHPRO wants to see more choice in the UK market, and is tempting retailers to attend the Salon and assess the brands on show with a private brunch and tour of the exhibition on the first day from 9.30am.

“People have spent the past two years learning more about the wider world of watchmaking. They have discovered phenomenal watchmaking online and are dying to try and buy the timekeepers they have been reading about. I believe there has never been a better time for retailers to broaden their horizons and find a way to bring different brands into their portfolios,” Mr Corder suggests.

The WATCHPRO Salon Retailer Brunch at 9.30am on Friday, November 12, is by invitation-only. If you would like to attend, please e-mail rob.corder@itp.com.
