Dubai Watch Week To Host The Official 2015 GPHG Pre-selection

DWW logo

Earlier this month, the Grand Prix d’horlogerie de Geneve announced its final pre-selection of watches for what many are dubbing the “Oscars” of the watch industry. A ceremony, taking place on October 29th at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, it awards 16 prizes to the best watches of the year. But it’s the event’s top prize, the Aiguille d’Or, which brands will covet most. Before an esteemed panel of journalists, retailers and collectors evaluates them, the 72-preselected watches will travel to Honk Kong, Seoul and finally Dubai where they will be presented during the inaugural Dubai Watch Week (DWW) hosted by the GPHG and Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons—the Middle East’s largest luxury watch retailer.

“Following the success of the first GPHG exhibition in Dubai in 2013, there has been tremendous interest from both established collectors and emerging watch enthusiasts to see the 2015 pieces first-hand, as they represent the innovation, creativity and imagination of some of the world’s most celebrated watchmakers. The GPHG exhibition in Dubai highlights the growing significance of the Middle East region within our wider industry,” said Melika Yazdjerdi, Director and organizer of Dubai Watch Week 2015.
