The London Watch Show
Excitement is now building as the second London Watch Show is now just days away. The show is the only trade exhibition dedicated to the watch industry in the UK and experienced a highly successful launch in 2013. Whilst Basel World is the largest showcase for timepieces on the planet the emphasis there is on high end brands and it was felt that a boutique show with a broader appeal was needed for UK Watch professionals. The inaugural event proved popular and now the London Watch Show looks set to be a permanent fixture on the watch industry calendar.
The 2014 show takes place 6th and 7th July in the heart of London at the stunning Freemason’s Hall, Covent Garden. Following the success of the 2013 event, this year’s show will be even bigger and better with more exhibitors attending and a greater number of retailers and journalists heading to London. Advance registrations suggest that visitor numbers will be twice as high as last year as more and more industry professionals are becomming excited about the potential of the exhibition.
Watch Hub at the Show
Naturally Watch Hub will be attending the London Watch Show as we always strive to keep abreast of new developments in the industry and to showcase the latest timepiecs in our collection. We will be there to explore all of the ranges to see what’s hot and what’s not from our existing brands in 2014 and also to take a look at the new labels launching at the show. At Watch Hub we are keen to ensure that our clients can make their choice from the best available timepieces.
Many new brands are planning their UK launches at the show and estalished brands will be debuting their latest models. There will be watches unveiled which have previously only been seen overseas as prototypes. We are full of eager anticipation to view the latest designs and we will certainly be taking a close look at the new timepieces from Casio and Bulova to see what will be added to our range later in the year. Panzerra will be introducing their new Breuer Automatic range and interesting Southern Califonain Brand Nixon will be hoping to impress the UK buyers with their offering.
