Audemars Piguet opens Dubai Mall boutique

Family-owned haute horlogerie brand Audemars Piguet has opened a new flagship boutique at The Dubai Mall in partnership with leading Swiss watch retailer Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons. 

The new boutique was opened in the presence of Audemars Piguet Chief Executive Officer François-Henry Bennahmias; Giulio Papi, Director of Research and Development Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi; Nicolas Garzouzi, CEO of Audemars Piguet for Middle East; Abdulhamied Ahmed Seddiqi, Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons Vice Chairman, and Mohammed Abdulmagied Seddiqi, Ahmed Seddiq & Sons Chief Commercial Officer. 

“We look forward to inviting clients to immerse themselves in the heritage of Audemars Piguet at the new boutique in The Dubai Mall. It is with great pleasure that we mark this occasion once more with our long-standing partners and friends from Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons,” said Bennahmias. “The UAE is a very important market, with one of the strongest growth worldwide and introducing the brand’s new global aesthetic is a key step towards our presence in the region,” he concluded.

Situated on the ground floor of the mall, the boutique showcases an elegant design concept that captures the 140-year old brand’s core values: origins, artistry and extraordinary relationships.
