Last year Dubai Watch Week succeeded in reaching out to the Middle East watch aficionados, art patrons, and general public in promotion and education of Art of Watchmaking.

This year, the region's only dedicated event to horology, will take place in two locations: Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and The Dubai Mall. The theme "Masters of Time" will be prevalent in the program running across several exhibitions, workshops, forums, watchmaking master-classes and exclusive VIP events in both venues.

The Dubai Watch Week's second edition; 'Masters of Time', pays tribute to those individuals who have shaped and influenced this magical world of timekeeping. For our second edition, we are fortunate to work alongside our major partners to take our visitors and guests on a journey through a century of timekeeping-on a much larger scale than the previous year," says Melika Yazdjerdi, Director of Dubai Watch Week.

"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.
