The Biggest Watch Fair in the Middle East Returns for the 3rd Year

Dubai Watch Week takes places November 16 to 20.

A weeklong event organised by the largest watch retailer in the Gulf, Dubai Watch Week (DWW) is an annual event now in its third year. Taking place at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and open to the public, this year’s fair is bigger and better than before, with exhibitors ranging from establishment names like A. Lange & Söhne and Audemars Piguet to independents including F.P. Journe and Urwerk.

In fact, it’s not just the brands that will present, but the people as well. Confirmed speakers at the dozen or so panel discussions include Francois-Paul Journe and AP chief executive Francois Bennhamias. The event also includes workshops conducted by the likes of Kurt Klaus, the grand old man of IWC, and independent watchmaker Antoine Preziuso.
