The Return of Salon QP. Britain’s premier luxury watch event, opening its sixth edition, continues to be a showcase for fine Swiss brands and a springboard for young independents. Debuting at SalonQP is the Barcelona-based independent watch company Atelier de Chronométrie. Spain isn’t known as a center for fine watchmaking, but the new company is using the highly traditional approach of making its watches entirely by hand — it says it never uses CNC, or computer numeric control, milling machines.
