Dubai Watch Week 2023

شكرا جزيلا
أسبوع دبي للساعات

I want to express my deep appreciation to Dubai Watch Week, the participating brands, and everyone involved, with special thanks to the Seddiqi family, Hind Seddiqi, and her team.

Dubai Watch Week's 6th edition provided an invaluable platform for learning, growth, and connection—from industry experts to passionate watch enthusiasts. It served as a central hub for the global watch community, celebrating worldwide excellence in watches and watchmaking. A big thank you to all who contributed to the success of 2023, including those working behind the scenes.
To the exhibiting brands, your showcase of watchmaking excellence, unveiling exceptional novelties and innovations, and hosting impressive booths, events, and gatherings were truly appreciated.A heartfelt thank you goes out to the speakers and the Horology Forum participants. Your inspiration, intellectual leadership, and candid insights created spaces for diverse perspectives and discussions, transcending horology and touching on topics like sustainability, innovative thinking, navigating the complexities of legacy and innovation in horology, and company buy-outs.The watch community is the beating heart of Dubai Watch Week, from #WatchFam to #WatchFemme (if you're not aware, now you know!). Whether I'm a former industry professional, content creator or a collector, it's the community that fuels our passion and drives our endeavours.
The vibrant conversations with brands, chance encounters between booths, and meetings with friends, watch collectors, enthusiasts, and those who participated in conversations I hosted (thanks for introducing yourself), all contribute to the electrifying experience that I carry with me with great joy.
