DUBAI WATCH WEEK ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF THE 6TH EDITION OF ENGAGING HOROLOGICAL PANEL-LED DISCUSSIONS, THE HOROLOGY FORUM

Dubai, UAE; October 2020: Under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairperson of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), Dubai Watch Week is pleased to announce the return of the Horology Forum in a new format in October 2020.

An original concept pioneered by Dubai Watch Week, the Horology Forum is an intellectual space comprised of free-flowing discussions between master craftsmen, captains of industry and seasoned collectors. In light of current events, the Horology Forum will take place digitally, on the Dubai Watch Week YouTube platform. The panels will be pre-recorded and will air on 24th, 26th, 28th October and 9th November.

Hind Seddiqi, Director General of Dubai Watch Week commented: “We are delighted to announce the first online edition of the highly anticipated Horology Forum. Our objective of uniting the watch community and providing an educational platform is at the forefront of what we hope to achieve via this experience. We look forward to hosting our esteemed speakers and connecting with our audience around the world.”

Since the first edition, Dubai Culture & Arts Authority has remained the cultural partner of Dubai Watch Week. Christie’s, the world’s leading art business; also returns as a key partner for the 6th edition of the Horology Forum, whereby we will break with tradition and introduce some new formats. We have chosen to forego panel moderators. Instead, panels will be led by an individual from the Dubai Watch Week Committee to play ‘Devil’s Advocate.’ As each panel airs, the audience will be able to engage in a live Q&A session, with opportunity to submit follow up questions on social media in the days that follow.

The full schedule including more information on panel topics and speakers is now available to view on the Dubai Watch Week website.
