Dubai Watch Week (DWW) is like no other fair. There is no obvious commercial aspect to the event, and watches (and watchmakers) are there for the public’s appreciation rather than that of retailers and distributors (like Baselworld and the SIHH). Here Elizabeth Doerr takes a look at what makes DWW so special based on a conversation with the fair’s director general Hind Seddiqi.
In honor of the fourth edition of Dubai Watch Week 2019, several watch brands have issued limited edition timepieces. So without further ado, here we highlight four of the colorful limited editions seen at DWW 2019.
Taking place from 20 through 24 November 2019 at Dubai’s DIFC, participants of the 2019 edition of Dubai Watch Week can expect to discover new watches, hear interesting opinions, learn about the culture of Dubai – the United Arab Emirates’ fastest growing city – and enjoy the immense hospitality of Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons. What more could any watch lover want?
Year after year the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève continues to prove its relevance in the world of watches, and this year is no different.

Only Watch by Christie’s will be held in Geneva on November 9, 2019, and a surprisingly high number of skeleton watches are among the 50 unique pieces for sale.

Ahead of the eighth edition of the Only Watch auction taking place on November 9, 2019 in Geneva, Martin Green takes a look at ten unique-piece chronographs going under the hammer. Which is your favorite?
The most interesting aspect of the Aiguille d’Or is how the winner won’t always be the most complicated, expensive, or groundbreaking. To win the Aiguille d’Or, a watch needs to be a fantastic all-around watch and have that little something extra, that ‘je ne sais quoi.’ So which watch has our panel set its sights upon? There is much discussion, of course . . .
The GPHG Challenge category should probably more accurately be called the “Bang For Your Buck” category because this really is where you can see just how much watch you can get for your hard-earned dollar. But our panel is quite split on which watch delivers the most for the least.
