Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd July 2021 saw the first BQ Watches watch fair, and judging by the response it is the first of many. It was great to see so many of our customers and YouTube subscribers come together in one place to share their love of watches and try on all of their favourite pieces.
We had over 400 watches on display from brands such as Rolex, Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, Panerai, Breitling, Cartier, Omega and many more.
We loved letting you try on all the brands and models that you may find it difficult to see on the high street, and from the feedback we have received, we know you did too.
The most popular piece of the weekend was this 2017 green dial, yellow gold Daytona 116508, but as of the time of writing we still have not found it a new home.
And, to answer one of our most asked questions, the most expensive piece sold at the show was the Patek Philippe green aquanaut
From our exit-poll and follow-up survey, we are humbled to report a 98.5% approval rating from our guests. This is an absolutely amazing show of support from our valued customers and subscribers.
This is the first event that we have organised entirely on our own, and to receive this level of praise is overwhelming. We will definitely be back with another show later this year!
We wanted to share some of our favourite comments below:
There was a free prize draw that our guests were able to enter on the day of the event, and we ran an Instagram competition on the lead up to the show with the winner announced on Saturday. The Prize Draw winners were drawn live on our YouTube channel on Monday and have all now been contacted. Below is the list of the prizes we had on offer, and their lucky winners:
