Eight selected haute horlogerie manufacturers will be creating one-of-a-kind watches which will be on a preview display at Salon QP for three days in mid-November.
Frank Müller, Hublot, Roger Dubuis, Vacheron, Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Maurice Lacroix, Zenith and Constantin have all made unique, one-off watches that will be unveiled at Salon QP while Harrods will be sponsoring the Seminar Theatre. The celebratory event, occurring on November 8 and lasting until November 10, will take place on Saatchi’s second floor, where secondary events such as workshops and demonstrations will also take place.
In a first for Harrods, the luxury goods shop will be present at the event with its Service and After-Sales Bar, the only time the service has been available outside of the Harrods building. After-Sales consultants will be available to look after repairs, cleaning, and individualized consultations.
Three of the featured timepieces created for the special event are:
Audemars Piguet Ladies Tuxedo Automatique Featuring a white gold case that will be set with diamonds over its entirety, the watch has an asking price of about $225,550. 621 of the gems give the watch a total weight of 7.45 carats.
