Ahmed Sed­diqi & Sons— the Mid­dle East’s largest lux­ury watch re­tailer— in part­ner­ship with the Grand Prix d’hor­logerie de Gen­eve, has pre­sented this year’s of­fi­cial pre-se­lected time­pieces par­tic­i­pat­ing in the GPHG ex­hibit dur­ing the in­au­gu­ral Dubai Watch Week (DWW) from 18 to 22 Oc­to­ber at the Dubai In­ter­na­tional Fi­nan­cial Cen­tre (DIFC).

The 15th edi­tion of the GPHG will bring to­gether watch in­dus­try stake­hold­ers, rang­ing from the small­est brand to the most pres­ti­gious, who will be pre­sent­ing their re­cent creations in a spirit of unity and har­mony. The of­fi­cial list of 72 pre-se­lected time­pieces will be making their last in­ter­na­tional stop in Dubai be­fore they head back to Geneva where the win­ners will be an­nounced on 29 Oc­to­ber 2015.

Th­ese time­pieces are com­pet­ing to win one of the 16 awards in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories or the pres­ti­gious “Aigu­ille d’or” Grand Prix and have been pre-se­lected by the mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary, in­ter­na­tional GPHG 2015 jury- com­prised of chair, Aurel Bacs and 25 per­son­al­i­ties known for their watch­mak­ing ex­per­tise. This year, artists and mu­si­cians Di­eter Meier (Yello) and Eric Singer (Kiss) have joined the pres­ti­gious jury iden­ti­fy­ing con­tem­po­rary cre­ative tal­ent and watch­mak­ing ex­per­tise.
