The UAE is among the top ten Swiss watch importers in the world, making Dubai one of the most important watch markets in the Middle East.
In a bid to enthrall the luxurious watch lovers in the region and to present some of the finest work on the stage, the Dubai Watch Week is all set to return for a third consecutive year in November this year.
Dedicated to true craftsmanship
This is a global event dedicated to the craftsmanship and innovation in the watch industry. The annual event is held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.
The main objective of this prestigious event is to educate the public on the skills and knowledge of mechanical watch-making as well as raise awareness surrounding some of the watch industry challenges. Over the time, the event has been recognized as a significant meeting point for the watch industry as it creates an intimate platform for collectors, brands, watchmakers and the members of the media to interact and share knowledge.
Promoting brand ‘Dubai’
Dubai Watch Week is a non-commercial event that will continuously foster the interests of its regional watch community by promoting Dubai as a platform for horological enthusiasts and experts.
