Why you Should Bring the Kids to Dubai Watch Week
The reason Dubai Watch Week exists at all comes down to one particularly important word: family.
It was the family at the helm of Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons that turned an idea into a reality.
It was the parents of those who run the event today that taught their children about the value of time – and time together – as well as the joy, beauty, and history of watches.
And it is part of the reason Dubai Watch Week will continue with their tradition of making the event inclusive to children of a variety of ages. Family… is everything. So here are just some of the fun-filled activities your family can experience at the 2021 edition:
Christie’s Kids’ Auction
Back by popular demand, Christie’s will yet again host an auction for mini-sellers and pint-sized-bidders where kids can select an object which will first go into an auction catalog before heading over to an auction room where a Christie’s auctioneer will start the bidding process. If you think adults get competitive at the big watch auctions, they are nothing compared to these game players!
While kids may have to wait their turn while Maximilian Büsser and Georges Kern play air hockey in the gaming area, the fact remains that there IS a legitimate gaming area complete with foosball, the aforementioned air hockey, and more; a first for Dubai Watch Week.
Munchies and More
Yummy burgers and crispy fries at Salt. Tasty pastries and delectable sweets at Home Bakery. And fruity ice pops at Twist. If your little one is a foodie, Dubai Watch Week has you covered.
And Of Course, Watches
The brand exhibition hall of Dubai Watch Week plays up to the senses quite like nothing else, and with many CEOs, watchmakers, and brand founders on hand – several who have children of their own – it is an ideal opportunity for the ultimate show-and-tell experience. Just imagine a young child marveling at an MB&F Horological Machine that looks and acts like a dog or letting them listen to the chime of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Minute Repeater Supersonnerie. Moments like these may stick around in a child’s mind. Moments like these may create the watchmakers of the future.
Aside from what is specifically set up for the attendees on the younger side, there will be a massive number of opportunities to explore the art and beauty at the DIFC, and plenty of additional opportunities (as so many young people look for) to take pictures to send off into to the social media universe.
