Dubai Watch Week brings industry icons

Dubai Watch Week, the Middle East's premier watch exhibition, will bring together more than 40 renowned watchmakers, industry icons and collectors who will share their expertise, knowledge and insights on some of the most debated and trending topics related to horology, next month. 

Returning for the third consecutive year, Dubai Watch Week will be held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, from November 16 to 20.

Among the speakers will be visionary owner of Bovet Pascal Raffy, legendary watchmaker Kurt Klaus; Dior’s president of Timepieces Laurence Nicolas; Ben Clymer, founder and CEO of pre-eminent watch platform Hodinkee; Francois-Paul Journe, founder of F.P Journe; and seasoned timepiece collector Claude Sfeir.

Taking place in a new, purpose-built structure underneath the Gate, DIFC, Dubai Watch Week 2017 is set to be the biggest and most anticipated iteration of the event to date.

The annual event is organised by Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, in association with the Fondation de Haute Horlogerie (FHH).

After a raft of positive feedback following the 2016 edition, the show is set to be bigger and better under the 2017 theme ‘Classic and Contemporary’.

The theme explores the evolution of watchmaking, by bringing the industry’s rich heritage to light as well as championing its innovation and creativity - connecting the past to the present. In addition, the show plans to add more masterclasses, creative hubs and panels to the agenda that are set to surprise and delight visitors.

The 2017 agenda will feature an exciting programme filled with exclusive VIP events, workshops, watchmaking master-classes as well as talks some of the watch world’s most eminent personalities.
