"Lost time is never found again"
Last night (6th November) saw the VIP launch of Salon QP one of the world's most important watch events, held at Saatchi Gallery. Salon QP brings together an impressive list of watch brands ranging from established grandes maisons such as Jaeger-LeCoultre and Cartier, to independent watchmakers such as Urwerk and Ludovic Ballouard. I had a great time, sipping free champagne and marvelling at the very best in luxury watches.
There were some beautiful time pieces with the most incredible attention to detail. Below are a small selection of my favourite pieces from the evening.
|Sicis mosaic watch of Paris, part of their 'Grand Tour' Collection|
|The mechanics behind Ludovic Ballouard's 'Half Time' and 'Upside Down' Watches|
|The Leopard is back at Cartier|
|Sicis Mosaic Watch|
|One of the many amazing Hermes display cabinets|
Auction houses were also out in force, with Fellows, Watches of Knightsbridge and Bonhams all exhibiting. Fellows were running a fun competition via instagram to win a £250 voucher to redeem at auction, who ever gets the most likes on the picture of their watch wins.
So if you have time this weekend, I would strongly recommend you stop by and visit Salon QP at Saatchi Gallery.
