Rolex Will Officially Participate At Dubai Watch Week 2019 Shows & Events

For the first time in history, Rolex will participate in a watchmaking event held in the middle east. Dubai Watch Week 2019 will take place from November 20-24, and thanks to the burgeoning (and extremely healthy) relationship between Rolex and retailer Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the Swiss Power House will be on the bill.

The main focus of Rolex’s participation will be a dedicated exhibition exploring the universe of the Oyster Perpetual Submariner. The brand plans on pulling out all the stops and creating an interactive showpiece that explains how the now-iconic divers’ watch evolved over time and became just as celebrated on land, as it was in the sea. To further embellish proceedings, Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons also plans to organize an exhibition that will feature some rare and interesting vintage Rolexes.

This is the latest step taken by Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons to grow interest in and awareness of high-end horology in the middle east. The retailer takes its responsibilities seriously and sees itself as an educational gateway to luxury watchmaking. Access to quality resources can be scant in the region, but Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons is endeavoring to change that. Since being established in 1950, the retailer has built a vast client network built upon trust, knowledge, and superlative service. Its modern-day position of power in the region has been hard-earned, and the retailer understands the influence its partnerships can have on its clientele. This is why Rolex’s decision to participate in the Dubai Watch Week is so significant.

    always nice to see manufacturers interact with their customers

  • Only the first time?
    Rolex must pay more attention to its main customers.

  • FS1900

    50 locations in the UAE? I think there are fewer McDonalds in the state of Montana.

    • DanW94

      Quick google, 41 McDonalds in the state of Montana. Rolex definitely knows where their bread is buttered.

      • Berndt Norten

        Yeah but you can’t say while ordering at McDonald’s:

        ‘Hold the pickle
        Hold the lettuce
        Special orders
        Don’t upset us…’

    The Arabic abjad version of the Rolex signage in the last picture looks amazing. Can you imagine the buzz if Rolex were to replace the standard ‘Rolex’ dial text on a limited run of watches with this beautiful script?

    • Independent_George

      Yes, there certainly would be a buzz. And it would get ugly, fast.

  • George Yang

    Why does this “article” read more like a sponsored post about the Authorized Dealer? Like all you guys did was copy/paste the press release.

  • Garrett Hu

    Why be at any show? Rolex has nothing to sell? Some of these marketing spends just make no sense. Let’s create demand for a product you don’t have in stock. LOL genius.
