Saatchi Gallery, 7 November 2013

Not content with its incredible line up of brands, groundbreaking new releases and packed schedule of events, SalonQP will also host a very special charity watch auction when it opens at the Saatchi Gallery this November. Featuring three timepieces from top manufacturers, 80% of proceeds will be donated to the brand’s charity of choice, with the remainder going to the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers.

According to SalonQP founder, James Gurney, using the event to give back is a key part of what SalonQP is about. Gurney is particularly keen to support the Company of Clockmakers and the important work that it does for British horology.

The ancient livery company has been an equally strong supporter of SalonQP. “SalonQP is a most important event in the UK’s horological calendar,” says the Company’s Master, Prof. Paul Jarrett.

“The Salon helps by allowing the best of British watchmakers to show their watches alongside those of Swiss and other European makers. It also allows potential and young horologists to view the skilful work of the most experienced watchmakers, thus giving them something to aim for.”

Nomos Glashütte will be donating the first watch of a very special limited edition version of its beloved Tangente range – specifically, a Tangente 38 with the number 1/1000. Nomos’s chosen charity is Doctors Without Borders, a Nobel Prize-winning organisation that Nomos will further support by donating £100 for each Tangente 38 sold.

Other watches under the hammer include a classic and very sophisticated Frédérique Constant 43mm Index Automatic, which will be sold in aid of the British Heart Foundation, and an impressive S500 from Bremont, one of the big British draws at this year’s SalonQP.

The Bremont watch is one of a limited edition being donated to members of Walking with the Wounded’s Team UK for the South Pole Allied Challenge. The watch will travel to the Pole on the wrist of one of the team and is designed to be reliable and legible in extreme conditions.
