The hotly anticipated WatchPro Hot 100, in association with the Company of Master Jewellers, was unveiled at an exclusive party tonight at Altitude 360 in London.
The impressive venue, located in Westminster's Millbank Tower, was a suitably glamorous setting for the big reveal of the WatchPro Hot 100, a list comprising the UK watch industry's finest. The list recognises individuals working tirelessly and creatively both at the forefront of the industry and behind the scenes, those who drive the UK watch industry forward and ensure it evolves.
Attendees enjoyed spectacular views, drinks and canapes among a guest list that read like a who's who of the UK watch industry before the unveiling of the carefully composed Hot 100 list of key movers and shakers of the UK watch world.
Those in the list were brought together in one glossy book of photos and profiles that capture the personality of the people who make the UK such an important market for watches.
During her speech before the unveiling of the final list, WatchPro editor Kate Doherty praised the work of the people working in the industry. She said: "The WatchPro Hot 100 has been created as a celebration not just for the 100 people that we have selected for this year’s list, but as a recognition of the efforts of thousands of people that make up the community of watch professionals in the UK.
"The 100 individuals we have selected this year have all made an outstanding contribution to their companies and the wider industry over the past year, but they are by no means alone, and there are hundreds more people that could have been chosen. We hope many of them will make it into the Hot 100 in future years."
The WatchPro Hot 100 was supported by principal partner the Company of Master Jewellers and gold partners Bremont and Bering.
