“Bringing together the ever-growing watch industry, visitors can explore a programme of panel discussions, immersive experiences and creative techniques, set to inspire the horology community and a new generation of watch enthusiasts.

“With global manufacturers such as Rolex participating in the event for the first time ever, we hope to welcome more brands and exhibitors to Dubai for one of the most anticipated horological events of the year.”

Founded in 2015 by Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, Dubai Watch Week provides an intimate environment for collectors, brands, watchmakers and members of the media to interact and share knowledge.
