Get ready to set sail for WATCHPRO Salon in November

0

We didn’t promote WATCHPRO Salon outside the United Kingdom last year, particularly since there were still onerous covid testing requirements at the time for traveling from the US to Europe.

But the show was such a smash that we are proud to talk about the 2022 dates, and hope that it draws an international crowd in November.

WATCHPRO Salon is a showcase of prestige watchmakers where collectors, brands, retailers and press meet in 5-star luxury.

Back for a second time after a spectacular debut in 2021, the two-day event takes place from November 11 to 12 at The Londoner, one of the capital’s most spectacular 5-star hotels on London’s Leicester Square.

Tickets to this year’s WATCHPRO Salon are now on sale with an early bird discount of 20% off for the remainder of August.

It is the UK’s most prestigious watch show, with around 50 exceptional independent and luxury brands exhibiting alongside vintage and pre-owned leaders including Bonhams auctioneers and eBay.

A number of American watch brands and other businesses have already expressed an interest in taking part.

Along with the opportunity to try and buy the very latest watches and accessories at the top end fair, watch enthusiasts will also be able to join fascinating panel discussions on horology and the joy of collecting.

Many of the exhibiting brands will be presenting extremely rare watches that cannot ordinarily be seen or bought in the UK including limited editions that only super-collectors normally have access to.

There are various ticket options, with exclusive access and additional experiences for some guests.

WATCHPRO Salon 2022 – VIP Preview Friday

Booking early will be essential for the VIP Preview session on Friday — a sell-out last year — thanks to the exclusive event offering visitors canapés, fine Champagne and the opportunity to book private appointments with exhibiting watchmakers.

Most importantly, it will be a chance to mix with leaders of the watch industry and fellow watch enthusiasts in the 5-star luxury surroundings of The Londoner, the capital’s newest and most prestigious hotel on Leicester Square.

VIP Preview tickets are normally £100, including VAT, but are discounted to £80 until the end of the month.

WATCHPRO Salon 2022 – Salon Opening Night Friday

The first evening, on Friday, November 11, is the official opening night party.

Tickets for the reception, with free-flowing Champagne and canapés, will be £45 from the start of September but are discounted to just £36 for the rest of August.

Guests will be mixing with the exhibiting watchmakers, media, retailers, influencers and horological experts.

WATCHPRO Salon 2022 General Admission

General admission tickets are available for Saturday, November 12 for just £16 until the end of August, and £20 thereafter.

Guests will be free to tour the full WATCHPRO Salon exhibition, trying on and even ordering the rare and precious timepieces being presented.
