What to do at Dubai Watch Week

Headed to the biggest watch fair of the Middle East this weekend? Here's what you need to do when you're there.

From the winning Grand Prix d'Horologerie de Geneva watches to auction houses for kids, the third edition of the Dubai Watch Week has it all planned out to make your visit nothing short of perfect. Here's a few things you need to watch out for while you're here:

The Masterclasses and Watchmaking Workshops
Keep a lookout for the masterclass workshops which will be on throughout the event to give you an insight on how your timepiece was conceptualised, designed, and produced. Put the complication together with your own hands, or indulge in some creative art forms like miniature dial painting, engraving, enamelling etc.

The Auction Room

With Christie's as their official partner, the auction room experience will be something to watch out for. Discover what it's like to be in an actual auction room, learn the dynamics of bidding, and the highlight of the event, teach your children the same. Yes, Christie's is organising an intimate and detailed auction experience to make your child realise the value of a timepiece.

The Horology Forum

Panel discussions, talks, sessions, interactions and much more with top industry experts from your favourite brands.


From the Dubai Watch Week “Classic and Contemporary” themed exhibition, the GPHG Winning watches of 2017 display, and the more abstract FHH “Telling Time” display, you'll find each tent absolutely worth your while. The icing on the cake is the virtual reality experience by GPHG as they take you through the evolution of certain timepieces over the years.
