Pre-Salon QP photos of Hoptroff

This website, the prodigal guide, has published photos of the new Hoptroff atomic watch before it’s launch at the Salon QP. I don’t know about you but to me it looks a bit big; will this start the return of the pocket watch?

Salon QP 2013

This years exhibition looks to be a great one for those of us interested in the British watch industry. Things are really starting to get exciting with the the launch of new watches and  new brands. The first new brand being Pinion, a newly established watch company based in South Oxfordshire, England  who will release it’s first watch collection, called ‘Axis’. Everything about the watch is explained on their website.

There was also an interesting interview in the Daily Telegraph :

There will also be the launch of the Hoptroff range of atomic watches, which claim to be amazingly accurate. So despite them having batteries I am really curious to see them.

Then Schofield will be launching their Blacklamp Carbon, again the Telegraph has done a piece on this :
