Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, and the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority will launch Dubai Watch Week, the first dedicated horology exhibition in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Dubai Watch Week will be held in Dubai from 18 – 22 October 2015.
With the support of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Watch Week (DWW) will include the GPHG exhibition, workshops, seminars and round table discussions, in addition to private and public events.
The five-day event targets both local and international watch collectors and aficionados in the Gulf’s largest dedicated watch event.
“The appetite for greater insight into the world of watchmaking continues to grow exponentially in the Middle East, which has become a key export market during the last several decades,” said Mr. Abdulhamied Seddiqi, Vice Chairman of Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons. “Dubai Watch Week (DWW) is being established as a leading platform for education, debate and discovery into the world’s most innovative and covetable timepieces.”
Dubai Watch Week will host watch-making master classes, an education series, discussions by horological opinion leaders, as well as an excellent exhibition of superlative timepieces.
