Under the Patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority and organised by Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, Dubai Watch Week unveils the theme and the venues for the 2016 edition, which will take place from 15th-19th of November.
The programmes held at DIFC will take place from November 15th to 19th, 2016 and will showcase an expanded itinerary to Dubai Watch Week’s inaugural edition last year. Highlighting different educational aspects of the world of Horology, the panels at the horology forum will offer an unique insight into the world’s most illustrious watch personalities, where they will share their expertise and knowledge with the general public.
“We are proud to bring back Dubai Watch Week for a second edition, following its spectacular success last year. The region and the UAE’s dynamic markets are not only finding a deeper rooted interest in time pieces, there is also a growing population of connoisseurs and amateurs interested in learning more about the incredible art of watchmaking. We are fortunate to partner with the Fondation de Haute Horlogerie (FHH) who will bring the world’s experts to share insights into the art of horology. This event will allow visitors to become more knowledgeable about the craftsmanship, while offering them the unique opportunity to admire the most innovative and prestigious pieces of all times from up-close. We hope to welcome all watch, design, luxury and art enthusiasts for a week of unique educational entertainment,” said Hind Abdul Hamied Seddiqi - Chief Marketing Officer, Seddiqi Holding.
Back by popular demand, watchmaking classes held by prominent watchmakers and luxury brands will offer an interactive opportunity to handle movements while the comprehensive ‘Horological movements’ exhibition teaches watch enthusiasts about the different classification of movements presented by the brands. Visitors interested in learning more about cultural elements outside the watchmaking world will be able to explore a creative world of ideas and presentations at the Creative Hub in the DIFC during the week.
This year, The Dubai Mall will play a major part in Dubai Watch Week - lending home to three massive elements; HH Academy & Certification, "Masters of Time" exhibition and "Life of a Swiss Cuckoo Clock" exhibition from mid-November to early December 2016.
