Dubai Watch Week

Watchmakers and horologists are heading for Dubai from 18 to 22 October to visit the city’s first-ever Watch Week, an event dedicated to the diversity of watch making. Let Baroque Travel arrange your tickets right away

 

The highly anticipated Dubai Watch Week highlights the world of watches and horology,  so it’s time to pack your bags. The event has garnered a lot of attention, and is expected to be a major success, with a diverse program of topics and participants.

 

Dubai Watch Week is the first and largest event dedicated to watchmaking in the UAE. It includes a forum on October 19 to reinforce the stand of the watch industry to engage and educate the public as well as watch enthusiasts and those involved in the industry.


This prestigious event , which will be held at the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC), is set to become an annual global event. It has been put together by Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the largest watch retailer in the region, in association with the esteemed Swiss Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve (GPHG). The five-day event will offer visitors a journey of discovery into the world of Swiss watch-making and will also celebrate the achievements of the watch industry with various educational and cultural exhibitions, forums and workshops as well as an auction.

Key industry leaders in the watch industry from around the world are expected to be attending and will have the opportunity to engage with some of the most recognized collectors, brands, watchmakers and media in the world. A highlight of the event will be an exhibition of watches that are participating in the upcoming Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve watch industry awards show.

 

Dubai is the perfect location for such a prestigious and exclusive event. It’s already a celebrated destination for luxury shopping, so Dubai Watch Week will be a welcome addition to its annual events program.
