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.
